Default How do I clean my EGR

I have a 95 blazer 4.3 Vortec, I believe my egr valve is dirty and has been getting stuck open. Now im not great with engines but I really want to learn how to work on this stuff, I was wondering if this is something I can clean out on my own or if its a little to complicated for a beginner. If u guys think I can do it can u describe how to do it with some pictures... thanks

i just did it last night. too easy. 2x10mm bolts, 1 wire harness is all you have to detach. a can or carb cleaner and a dremel with a brash or nylon brush head (straight, not wheel) and some free time is all you need. pick up a new gasket w/ screen for like $4 at an aoutparts store FIRST or cheap out and get one for less than $2 with no screen.
it's right up front, center and slightly left on you intake manifold, just behind the fan, infront of throttle body (under cables). It's black and round (like a 1/2 soda can).

re-direct the time you spent reading that, and you could already be done with most of it
