SOURCE: I cant find the egr valve.
Its right in front of the engine as soon as u open the hood On the left side. It has one electric cable connected on top and a pipe with the diameter of a dime at the lower side running to a lower section of the engine.

Take off your EGR valve and clean it out with carb cleaner also
grease tyhe little screw thing in it,,, u will c what i mean if u take it apart. carbon builds up in the chamber. it is located at the back left side of your engine and is a bit of a pain to take off. this should save u the cost except for the cleaner and labor. i had the same problem cheapest i found was 90$ on ebay.

Do you have an odd smell in the interior compartment? This could be due to the egr being damaged from debris from the road. Hire a professional to do it or go to a car parts store and get the motors repair manual or similar.

Erase the code and see if it returns. If it does, replace the valve. What engine do you have? If it is a 3.4 it should be right on top. One plug and two bolts.

SOURCE: Hard to start and gas cap loose
you can easily replace it yourself for 50. it just unbolts and you bolt the new one on. You might have to remove a couple of things but nothing too hard,

Locate the EGR valve in the engine bay. The year and make of the Dodge vehicle determine where the valve is located. This is on the front of the engine block, next to the timing belt in model-year 2005 and newer trucks. In older vehicles you will typically find the valve behind the engine, near the firewall.
Unclip the exhaust tube from the side of the valve. You can do this by hand. Shift the tube from side to side until it slides off.Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the EGR valve from the exhaust tube. There is a screw on each side of the tube.
Disconnect the harness from the EGR valve. Use your hand to pull up on the tab and slide the harness from the valve.
Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the two screws that secure the EGR valve to the cylinder head. Remove the EGR valve and clean the surface of the cylinder.
Attach the new EGR valve to the cylinder head and tighten it down with the same screws that were previously installed.
Reattach the harness and reattach the exhaust tube to the valve. Tighten the two flat-head screws that hold the tube to the valve.
Reattach the hose to the valve and use your hand to attach the clip to the hose.
