Default EGR Valve pintle position error

Hiya folks,

I've been getting an EGR valve pintle position error sporadically for the last month-month and a half. Even the first time I removed the valve and cleaned it, the pintle had free movement. So.. besides pissing me off by throwing the idiot light, I need to get this car to pass emissions at some point.

Any suggestions? I don't want to throw parts at the car without a plan. Could it be the sensor that monitors the valve?

You cannot replace it seperately. Off to the wrecker for you.

Check with GMPD to see what years it cross ref'* into...you'll have better luck that way.
