Duke, Chuck,
Thanks for the help. I cleaned and checked the EGR valve. It was only dirty and the diaphragm worked OK. Duke you are probably right on track with fraudulently certified because I found a ball bearing stuck inside each vac hose to plug the lines and stop the EGR from opening. After removing the bearings I went back to the E test station and failed again. This time with the EGR working the NOx came down to 2010 but still not enough and with the EGR working the car ran very rough and almost stalled. For now I will just park the car because I do not want to put alot of time/money into making all the other repairs needed along with passing the E check and I only drive it in the winter.
Thanks again for the help,
