you're probably not going to want to do it yourself unless working on cars is what yo do for a living, my first one i did took me about four hours, now i have them down i about 1-1.5 hours, they are a pain in the arse, located on the drivers side rear of the engine block under the intake manifold. remove the engine cover, fuel filter and housing, (is not pressurized) two small coolant hoses attached to the egr and you'll need 1/4 inch ratchet w/8 mm socket and 8 mm ratcheting wrench(atleast thats what i use) prepare for sore back, shoulders and arms. may possibly need ecm flash, is recommended w/egr replacement. good luck

Why is ECM flash "recommended w/egr replacement"?

I had the mechanic replace my EGR...He cussed me out from one end of his shop to the other about the pain in the ass that it was to change. He ended up taking the engine cover off, removing the fuel filter and starter to get the the EGR

I didn't flash my ECM and it seems to run better than what it did prior to the EGR replacement.

You don't need to be a mechanic to replace the EGR valve. Yo do need tools, time and patience.

Remove the batt & tray, the fuel head, CAC hose and FCV. After removing all og this, you still will not have enough room to work, but it's the best you'll get.

You're supposed to drain the coolant since there are hoses connected to the EGR and the system is under pressure. I didn't do that however.

The EGR is held in place with 4 screws that you will not be able to see only feel. Be careful not to strip them. I'm no expert but there was no way I was going to pay $700 to replace something that is held on with 4 screws.

Be wary that blown CAC hose can also trigger EGR codes which was my case.

MrMopar has stated on LOST that they can be succesfully cleaned after removing the electrical part from the valve.
MrMopar also says the latest flash exercises the EGR more to keep it free.
It took the dealer tech 8 hours to replace my EGR and Flow control valves under warranty. Must have been his first one.
