Default EGR valve replacement??

I need some help here. I have a 2006 300 Touring with the 3.5 V6 and just recently the check engine light came on. i took it to the local dealership and had it scanned. I got a code that read Exhaust Gas Recirculation Sensor A Circuit High. I was told that the EGR valve might have some build-up in it and might need to be cleaned out or replaced. Has anybody else ever have this problem and what did you do to fix it? I am more than capable to fix it myself, but not to sure were to find the valve on this car. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

I don't own that recent a vehicle, but EGR valves do get crusty and rusty inside. Usually cleaning is ineffective and replacement is better. It does seem a little soon for that type of problem though.

It is possible that the valve trapped a piece of carbon or other debris in it, and it can successfully be cleaned. Give it a try. It can't hurt. But have access to a replacement before you start.

Oh, as to location: I don't have specific information on that, but if you look at your intake manifold you should find a metal tube that looks like it has been hot that goes to an exhaust pipe. Along the way you should find the EGR. (On some models they are not actually attached to that pipe. Those may be a little harder to find. Look for a diaphram style valve that connects to the head.)

Has anyone replaced the EGR valve in a 2008 Chrysler Pacifica Touring to fix intermittent stalling while driving?
