hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Clearing fault codes will not repair the problem. Fault codes set because the engine controller is seeing a failure in a component, preventing the problem from returning will require repairing the problem. If it's setting an EGR code then that needs to be diagnosed and the problem repaired. Depending on exactly what code is setting it could be the valve itself, restricted passages, possibly a leak in the intake tract or a bad mass airflow sensor. The EGR valve will most likely need to be replaced.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
