just needed to know where the EGR valve is located on 2001 Kia Optima

hoping for a picture maybe, or diagram to help in locating the EGR valve. I am tight on money, and need the car running, and any answers to this email would be greatly apreciated, THANK YOU,

I can certainly relate to times being tough. Kia as a manufacture have put a lot of technical information on line for free http://www.kiatechinfo.com/index.asp you have to sign up but its all free. The EGR valve is on the drivers rear of the engine (air filter housing side of engine). There is also a electrical control solenoid that could be the problem, plugged passage ways, a vacuum hose that could be knocked off.
