I keep getting a P401 code EGR flow insufficent on my 2003 honda civic 1.7

(2003 Honda Civic)
in Roxboro, NC on February 23, 2012
I have cleaned around the EGR port several times but still getting the code. After cleaning I can run the car for about 30 minutes but will still get the code. I have even bought a new one but still getting the code. What else could be wrong.

the amount of vacuum to the valve. hondas are common for carbon clogging the vacuum ports to the egr. have a shop verify this.

when you remove the valve, there are 2 ports. one is exhaust and one engine vacuum. the engine side tends to clog badly with carbon.
