Try the EGR Valve.

Egr only affects Nox. You are running rich, bad injectors, high fuel pressure, bad fuel regulator ( common), o2 sensor, these things need to be checked out by a qualified technician with the proper equipment. A full scan should reveal the problem. Watch for cat efficiency from the scanner readings also, which is a comparison of the pre and post cat o2 inputs.
