Most EGR valves operate when the engine is running and at a certain rpm when driving.If it is stuck open it can cause rough running and popping noises or odd engine or exhaust noises.If stuck open this can be due to carbon build up needing cleaned out of the valve and the ports for the valve and intake and exhaust and the valve replaced in some cases.If this is not what you are speaking of here on this let me know.

O.k., the noise is most likely the valve trying to seat or close.If it is cleaned usually this is done with carburetor cleaner or brake cleaner with the valve removed and carefully to not saturate it.There is a 50/50 chance this ruins the valve with it needing replaced.Unfortunately, my info isn't showing me how this valve is removed to do this but once removed you should see the opening in it that builds up with carbon.
The ports it seats onto usually need cleaned as well and sometimes is a complete manifold assembly that is removed and cleaned.
You can go with the delete.Allot of customers do this as long as you don't have emissions testing where you are located and it saves a bunch of money going this route.
You would need to check with a shop that does performance upgrades and repairs so they can get you a kit to do the delete.They will also need to reprogram the computer when this is done so the computer is no longer trying to operate the valve.
Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time, this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed.Your 5-star rating is appreciated
