You should be able to get the code read at any auto store for free, unless you live in California.

That'* valve stuck open. Could be a stuck valve or the solenoid went out. You can test the solenoid easy, here'* a write up. https://www.gmforum.com/trouble-shooting-test-procedures-141/egr-solenoid-test-296250/
