Insufficiant flow to my EGR

Hey guys, I got a code that I'm getting insufficiant flow to my EGR. I've looked at it but nothings loose or leaking. Should I just replace the whole thing as in the three main parts?

Don't use forced air on the valve, disconnect the metal tube at the valve, if possible avoid unscrewing the pipe fitting from the exhaust manifold; if you strip it your in for a nightmare that could put ur Stang down for some time till you find a fitting. Early model, Pre 2005 or so are tough to find EGRs tubes for. If you do however run into trouble, remember that it's a plumbing fitting, not automotive. Pull the Cats before you start to avoid clogging them. Maybe a 10 second start up would help after cleaning to blow manifold clean. Re-assemble. Don't forget the 1 or 2 small tubes that feed other sensor, disconnect them first.

If I had to do it, this is how. I had worse but figured it out when I could not find one, not even junk. 1997 GT vert here.

PS: the advice above is in addition other advice on this problem. I am a DIY not pro. Thanks

Lol just get the egr delete kit from lethal performance for 30 and save yourself the trouble. It's super simple and can be done in I believe 30 minutes. That's about what it took me. Slap on a tuner and program it out and boom problem solved.

It's a little better for performance but not anything noticeable and same with fuel. It's just a waste to have the egr. Flowing exhaust into your intake? What would that be any good except in emissions
