Check the EGR ports for restriction with carbon build up.I have seen lots of carbon build up in the EGR ports in the past before causing issues like this with an EGR code,surging and when the EGR is activated the engine does not bog down or try and stall out.If the ports are corroded they will need cleaned of carbon to correct this here and in some cases I have had to use something like a wire coat hanger or mechanics wire to dig out the carbon.

Does the engine idle rough at all even briefly when you command on the egr valve?
What year,model and engine size is in this vehicle here?
O.k.,unfortunately my info is not listing the 2.4 liter here for testing of this valve control myself.Others here may have this info for this testing.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
What is the exact code you are getting? Also if you reach in and grab the Egr diaphragm and lift up, does the truck stall?
did you check the power and ground to the solenoid? Also where is the solenoid you replaced located and where did you buy it?
is this a manual transmission?
The solenoid should be back by the Egr area. You may have defective solenoid.
Just cause it's new, does not mean it works. Here is the complete diagnostic steps to properly check the circuit and the valve.
I would also make sure you have NGK spark plugs in the engine for the cylinder 3 misfire code you have also.
ok. Check the hoses as well.
No, you can't by pass it.
That is the name of the Nissan Scanner
The steps are a bit different since the solus is a different scanner. You want to use the GST steps. ( Generic Scan Tool )
This maybe easier to speak to you and help you.
Does the code clear if you clear it? Does it only return if you turn the truck off and restart it?
I do know that the ports in the intake do get carboned up.
If you clear the code when the engine is running, will it come back on it's own? or only after you have turned the truck off and restarted it?
If you can only get the code to return on a restart, that is a sign of a bad Ecm.
If you can drive the truck 20 miles with out turning it off, and the code does not return and only returns when the truck is turned off and restarted, that is a sign of a bad Ecm.
