Seems like this car's EGR passage needs to get cleaned every 5 years or so. Last time my mechanic had to redo another mechanic's work saying that he did not go far enough in cleaning the passage. He is retired now so I can not go back to him. But, the problem is identical to 5 yrs ago.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have always passed smog and my previous mechanic ( the one that fixed the problem 5 yrs ago) said don't worry about it . It won't hurt anything.

I disagree with him, the egr plays a vital role in controlling ore detonation, and nobody wants a check engine light on

With today's gas it's not uncommon to have carbon buildup, or you doing any kind of induction service regularly? And besides the parts you named you have an egr solenoid that could be at fault. This system is easy to check, since you suspect clogged passage get a vacuum pump and apply vacuum to egr the engine should die or stumble really bad. If it doesn't need to clean passages, removing throttle body will be necessary
