Misfire and check engine light due to clogged EGR valve on Nissan Frontier

The EGR valve can become clogged with carbon, which causes the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This can result in moderate to severe misfires on acceleration and the EGR valve and passages will need to be cleaned.

miss fire cylinder #3, and check engine light on
I have had nothing but problems out of my vehicle and now we are the end of warranty, by 5 months and I am told that I need a Canister Vent Control Valve and a Evaporation Control Canister for my vehicle that has been well taken care of, oil changes regularly, washed and pampered. My vehicle has 77,711 miles on it and it is going to cost me 700 dollars to get it fixed! It was just in the Nissan Dealership for the Gas Sensor that went bad in JUNE, a recall on the airbags in MAY and now this. Nissan has gone down hill and I will be sure to pass it along, that Nissan's now deals with "Throw Away" vehicles! You pay 30 grand for a vehcile to last you 5 years, really???? WOW! I am beyond upset at how Nissan handles their customers, vehicles and warranties! NEXT TIME I WILL BUY A CHEVY!

check engine light came on reader says its an egr code with 2nd cyl.misfire. This happened at about 90000 miles too. nissan dealer had to take the intake apart and clean the carbon out there are ports by each cyl that have to be cleaned.
i have changed all plugs cap and rotor fuel filter to and even the cadillac converter still have the same problem not fixed yet
My check engine light came on. The dealer replaced the EGR valve and the check engine light came on again. The dealer cleaned two engine ports and installed two new gasgets. The problem was due to a carbon build up.
Check Engine Light flashing. severe misfires on acceleration. Got it to shop, changed some parts(bnk.1 cat., camshaft sensor, spark plugs, coil on Cyl.1) not too much improvement. Charged me $2000 and engine light still on, they said need engine.. Had problem with fuel level sending, not fixed yet.

We have spent three monnths noww We haven't yet fiixed this but are trying to figure out why it won't start our code say mass air flow. Replaced still won't start. Multi cylinder misfire detected I can put knock sensor high a t control unit or 1st gear to signal fault.
