You normally can't fix them. I would look for vacuum line leaks, check the VSV and if that doesn't fix your issue, replace the EGR

I had the same code. Egr was fine.

Fixed some exhaust leaks and it took care of it.

Could be a number of things.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Removing the EGR does nothing for performance. The EGR doesnt function at WOT, and its needed to keep the combustion chamber cool during part throttle operation, which also gives optimal fuel economy.

well i stand corrected. it is useful to delete them on diesel engines though right? i still don't see how throwing exhaust back into the engine cools the combustion chamber. am i missing something here?
