Pretty simple. Unscrew the exhaust line from the bottom then unscrew two bolts. Viola.

I think there is a vacuum line as well. That just pops off.

I have a 98, 2.5L, 2wd with 157K. I justed changed my EGR and getting the valve off was not big problem. Just 2 bolts and it will come off, but you have to get it off the EGR tube that runs to the exhaust manifold. Mine was rusted tight and I have to break the tube off the manifold and replace the valve, tube and the connector to the manifold. Auto parts stores carry the valve but only dealerships carry the tube and the connector.. Check your Chilton (if you have one). Its not that hard but it is work...

The egr tube was around $70..yikes..and the connector was about $40..double yikes. But, the my truck is 13 yrs old, so with the valve, tube and connector, I was into the repair for about $175.
