The Check Engine lite is on in my 99 Duratech, the code we got was
EGR Gasket, does that mean replace the gasket but can i reuse the
EGR valve itself, or should i replace both? can't they be cleaned?
anyone ever have this?
thanks, dave

Differential (or Delta) Pressure Feedback EGR. It is a common problem on the Gen III and IV Taurus. While relatively easy to replace, its about a $50-$60 part, depending on where you are able to get one. Your best bet would be to go to AutoZone and get them to read the code for you so you will know exactly what it is. There are a lot of codes dealing with the EGR system. If we know the code, we can better point you in the right direction.
