I have a 79 club wagon... so i dont know if this would be the right procedure/thing to do for your year,but through advise i heard and what i did for my egr was,dismount egr from manifold ,clean out carbon from the egr itself and the manifold ports "i was carefull not to let carbon particle's slipping into manifold-i dont know if it matter's but i would rather be safe than sorry" and then i sprayed out the egr with carbcleaner VERY well..... then "i dont know if it matters" but i let it air out for 24 hours before bolting back on "i was afraid of fire/combustion" i would sudjest replaceing the gasket also "costs about 2 dollers"....i just put a VERY thin layer of hi-temp gasket sealent on it.
thats just what i did... "read it online" it didint fix "my" problem but man...it needed it:P
