Have you done an exhaust system back pressure test? Most parts stores sell the kit to DIY just follow the directions.

Not yet but think it might be the egr valve manifold is clogged or the valve is totally Bad


That would give you a check engine light for no or low EGR flow, I did assume that you already had the codes checked and there were none found..
