MY CAR HAS JUST STARTED SPUTTERING ON THE OPEN ROAD. LIKE ITS NOT RUNNING ON ALL CYLINDERS. I RAN A CODE AND IT CONTINUES TO GIVE SAME ONE CONCERNING THE EGR VALVE , WHICH I REPLACED NOT LONG AGO.THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAYS ON, AND ACTUALLY STARTS TO BLINK WHEN I HAVE TO GET ON IT ALITTLE OR START UP A STEEP INCLINE. THIS HAS BEEN A GREAT CAR BUT THIS IS GETTING OLD. I'VE TRIED TO STAY AWAY FROM DEALERSHIP BECAUSE OF PAST EXPERIENCE. IF ANYONE HAS EXPERIENCED ANYTHING SIMILIAR TO THIS , I SURE WISH YOU WOULD SHARE SOME LIGHT ON THIS , AND TELL ME WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO FIX IT, I SURE WOULD APPRECIATE IT . SORRY FOR THE LONG POST
THANKS DEAN

More than likely you need to clean the EGR port on the firewall side of the engine. The port gets clogged and will code for "EGR insufficient flow" It's not too easy to get to nor is it fun to clean. You may want to go to the dealership this time if you aren't willing to do it yourself.
