Hello everyone!!!

This is my first post on this site and I would like to say hello. I have been reading other posts and doing searches for my vehicles problem. I have had it to two separate places, one for a radiator flush and the other was auto zone. My check engine light will go off for a couple days and then come on for a couple of days. If it is off and I make a left turn it WILL come on again. It came up after being tested for egr system on the code reader and I don't remember the code number. I have read some other posts and most of the problems are the selenoid but I can't find it under the air intake. I found a small selenoid under (I think it is call the cylinder head manifold) what ever it is, it is a big shiny thing on top of the engine. Could this be it and can a selenoid be cleaned or does it have to be replaced? I have 106,000 original miles on it but I hate that light being on most of the time. I am so close to just ripping out the stupid bulb but I think it is more difficult to reach than fixing the problem. If anyone has any info or remarks please post them.

Thanks in advance.

You need to find out the specific code that is being stored. That will make troubleshooting the problem easier.
