the egr is centered on the top, front of the engine. it has an electrical connector attached. it can cost $304.00 for a new one at autozone, "OR" you can try cleaning it and spend about $1.99 for a cheap "value" brand can of carb cleaner, a used tooth brush and a steel brush. the egr gets sooted up like crazy and so do the ports inside the intake. the intake needs to be vacuumed out.

i just answered your question with thw $1.99 cheap carb cleaner. i forgot to say that i just did this. my "service engine" light came on and I pulled 4 error codes. all codes cleared after i spent the time (not money) to properly clean the egr and the intake cavity ports. about an hour labor and $1.99 leaves me with plenty of beer money!!!
