Dear customer, I apologise for the delay, I would like to know if you have replaced the EGR valve.

Yes, egr valve its been replaced.
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 12 days ago.

Dear customer, the EGR valve is responsible for recirculating the exhaust gases to the intake, it is possible that you have problems in the exhaust that is not allowing proper gas recirculation, but it is also possible that you have problems in the area near the EGR valve as air leaks.
