you don't say if the code is stored or active, and when you tested was the code stored or active the readings you have are meaningless UNLESS the code was active at the time you tested the system.
we use egr more for performance than emissions because with an egr valve we can use a HIGHER COMPRESSION AND FAR MORE AGRESSIVE timing curve than without it
remember with the obd2 rules in place anytime a fault is detected the check engine light has to be illuminated and then the system is tested by the computer if it continually fails the test the code is considered active if it passes th etests 3 times the light is turned off, if the computer passes a test 1 time the code is considered stored but the light stays on until 2 more tests are passed .
so it is critical any tests are done with an active code
BUT egr valves are common to fail and I would be very confident in replacing the valve with a good oem one as there have been many updates to the original design
just following up to see if you still need assistance
many people just clear the code including many tech's it wasn't until ghost codes were showing that the addition of disconnecting the battery was added through a engineering bulletin.
I look forward to hearing from you, and please don't forget to verify the engine computer software
that is ok that also just points further to a failing egr
