EGR clean the large hole that supplies exhaust flow

I just cleaned the vacuum port on my 2001 rodeo EGR. I would have liked to have cleaned the large hole that supplies exhaust flow for reducing the oil consumption problem - but I can't find anything about it.

Does anyone know the link is or how to do it?

Cleaning the EGR passage, while being a good idea to do, won't effect oil consumption. Oil consumption is caused by a design flaw with the pistons. Not enough drain back holes allows oil to push past the rings. To clean the EGR passage, remove the EGR valve, 2 small bolts. The most common place for the passage to plug up is in the intake where it dumps out. The tube coming from the exhaust rarely clogs. The hole that supplies exhaust is the one with the pipe attached. The other goes into the intake.

Thanks for responding - so you are saying that I've already done what I can do, yes?

Even after spraying a can down the intake it still seems to want to sputter at idle. I have 138,000 so I can't complain too much.

You may want to clean your butterfly in the throttlebody to help the stuttering

This might help concerning the ERG Valve issue.

That cured the sputtering.
