My egr valve clogs up every year. Clean it out with carb spray till it moves freely. Just did it tonight. It wasnt opening/closing freely so sprayed/ cleaned it. Unfortunately, even though it was stuck open & needed to be cleaned, truck cranks but still wont turn over. Now trying to fig out what else it could be.
