Define EGR problems.

Ya, that description is a little, vague.
What have you done so far?
If I had to take a guess, im gonna say you are getting codes for inadequate exhaust gas circulation. So I would recommend checking your DPFE sensor

You have carbon build up in your EGR valve. I went overboard to make sure I got it real good and clean but I unhooked the EGR valve and throttle body and everything else that needed unhooking, Be sure and get the 3 gaskets before starting. And DON"T over tighten any bolts. I broke one in the aluminum block, and it sucked getting out. But use carburetor cleaner to clean it out. Hook battery cables back up and light should go off and stay off. It should take 1-2hour if you clean it as good as I did. I have to clean mine about every 100,000 miles.
