EGR Port Removal Troubleshoot

I am having issues with removing the old EGR port plugs from my car. At the moment I have one plug with a hole drilled into it and a screw I tried removing it but I cannot. I went to rent a slide hammer from Autozone but it is way too big and came with no adapter. Please if you have any suggestions on what I can try that would be very helpful! I have to smog the car so getting this dealt with as fast as possible would be great!

Here are some websites I have used for reference;

The screw and hammer trick should work, try that again if you've already begun that way of doing it....

Re: EGR Port Removal Troubleshoot

Thanks for the suggestion I would have done it had I not manufactured my own slide hammer. What I did was simply use a bolt and some screws and it worked to perfection. I am very happy that I have been able to solve this problem. I cleaned out the ports to the best of my ability as well as the valve itself. Just a question for my CEL P0401 error to go away I simply just have to reset the code from my OBDII scanning tool correct? I am slightly worried that the code will not go away, but I will do this tomorrow. Took me almost 5 hours and an extra set of hands but I did it. Got some new spark plugs and will be putting them in tomorrow. Can't wait to see how much better the car will run now. If anyone in the future needs any help feel free to PM me. I had many problems but I went through this with determination and finally saw it the end out.

Yeah just reset and it'll go away. Drive around a bit and get some miles. In the case that your EGR was not the issue - the code will return.

I just had my EGR done 2 months ago, not much of a difference but it was a difference to say the least.

Re: EGR Port Removal Troubleshoot

You are right which is why the difference I am greatly expecting is from the change of spark plugs. The ones in my car are probably about 120,000miles old... so with my new ones and the EGR cleaning the difference will be felt, can't wait to see what it will be like!
