Icon5 Check Engine Light

Oops put wrong title on last post! But anyways i was driving a while ago and my check engine light came on. This is a depressing sight in it self. So i went and got it checked out. I found it out to be my EGR Valve. Around 200 dollars later after replacing it my engine light came on again. Same code came up. Could it be that the caps are so dirty that it is setting that off?

#1 - this is in the wrong section, should be under general tech talk, but since I can't move it you will have to wait for one of the "MOD GODS" to move it for you

#2 - my engine light has been on ever since I have owned the car, it doesn't affect anything for me, but mine is because of "Catalytic Deficiency" - check that out, worth a shot. When the check engine light came on, did anything change in the way the car was driving, or did it just come on, you noticed it, and then started panicking?
