My EGR port is clogged. Is it possible for me to clean up? How tough?

Quite a time consuming job, even if nothing breaks when you take it apart. It is best not to undertake this unless you have the correct size wrenches, penetrating oil, and a heat source either acceteline or propane torch. Also car may be "down" for a day or so awaiting new parts if tubes break during disassembly.
I have done this many times, e-mail me with specific questions if desired.
