Damn # 5 code came up again!

A couple of days ago, wife tells me check engine light is on again. Looks like the EGR inoperative thingy. Geez, in a diesel, we look to disconnect the damn thing to get more power. Can we disconnect this vale in a '94 E320? Car's running no so smooth as before but not so bad. Should I get my indy to clean out the hot inlet tube? Does he have to take off the intake manifold? Damn that EGR valve is an expensive part- $210! I hope it doesn't need replacing. Had this problem before with other codes but cleared when I replaced the spark plug connectors.
