When an EGR valve plugs itself, it's a blessing.
No more exhaust enters the intake.
No more sludge build up.

Garsh, some peoples help the EGR block itself faster using a shim of metal.
Just sayin'

The vac flap, Vacuum actuated controller flap can be seen standing in front of the car on the left it controls the amount of air entering the intake manifold. I highly doubt that will be your problem.

What is the mileage on the car and would you happen to have a very gradual loss of coolant?

... (if it needs saying,) assuming you have the valves properly adjusted?

Unique problem I would still think it may be the wrong resistance sensor. I would search for a temp sensor thread started by member BillGrissom who lists a chart which I believe I confirmed at some point when, I was having similar problems. It's the chart which goes from about 20 ohms to around 400 ohms. Can you check the resistance of both at ambient temp to see the difference if you wish I'll. do the same as I know mine is good.
