E G R Valve

(1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo)
in Indianapolis, IN on February 13, 2011
I went to replace my egr valve aprox 6 months ago, but never cleaned the ports before mounting the part, service engine light is back on, and car is running sluggish? and I am hearing a sound almost like a hole in exhaust pipe not real loud, but noticable?? Is the erg valve bad now again, or can it be cleaned also? not sure what to do at this point, have I done damage to my motor??

EGR valve will not cause sluggishness. A partially clogged catyltic converter could. Take it to a pro and let them check it out.
