Have someone who knows what they are doing look at it. Parts for the most part may not fix that problem. Might be something as simple as a vacuum hose, something as complex as a PCM.

In the long run it may be cheaper to have it checked out professionally by someone with the right tools to diagnose it properly.

Just my .02

I have the same code being thrown but the car still runs great. I usually notice tiny things but this time i cant see/feel/hear anything. Is that the way this code is? I know what an EGR does and will not do but i haven't noticed anything. Not that important just kinda curious. Thanks guys.

When I first got my 94, it had the bad EGR code and thus failed emissions testing. It ran fine, started fine, etc. It really was just the EGR, once changed the code was gone and not a problem since. As mentioned, check vacuum lines to make sure the EGR is still connected first. Although I don't see any reason it would become disconnected unless someone was moving things around back there, and normally a disconnected line will have a noticeable affect on the way the car runs. An EGR isn't that much money, is a quick swap, and if you are still running the original then it likely does need to be replaced.

Sometimes cleaning the EGR valve with carburetor cleaner does the trick. If you want to make sure it is just a little dirty and not waste money on one. Just make sure you don't get any inside the sensors in the valve that fries them. One of my friends had that code on his 96 caprice and once he cleaned it the code didn't come back.

if ones car has headers or bigger exhaust and need to replace the egr valve, the f-body egr valve part number is in the parts number sticky.
I consider it an upgrade.
