06' Freestyle: Egr Valve

My mother has a 2006 ford freestyle and it is giving her a check engine light due to the egr system. I am looking for the egr valve but can't seem to find it. Don't even really know what it looks like. I was wondering if anyone knew where the valve was on this vehicle and if the valve can be cleaned. When she had it scanned at auto zone it told her about every part in the egr system. I figured maybe the valve itself needed to be cleaned.

It could be one of three designs. What are the specific codes you have?
Chances are its not the valve but the passageways that are plugged. It could also be a bad regulator or a bad delta sensor.
In each intake port there is a restrictor where exhaust gas is injected ( when requested by pcm) these can plug sometimes one or two at a time and can cause a misfire as well as an insufficient flow code.
Post the code numbers and I will look to see if i can determine which system you have and where to look for trouble. Latech

Also which engine do you have 3.9 or 4.2 ?

You may want to check the warranty period in your owners manual. Some of the auto manufactures have extended periods for emission systems - Like 8 years or 80,000 miles. Just a thought.
