the egr valve is part of the inlet manifold at the back of the engine. If you are standing at the front of the car its positioned on the left.
They carbon up and jam - you can remove the solenoid assembly from the manifold (three screws) to gain access to the jammed valve - then free it up and clean out carbon deposits - this usualy works
