Default EGR Code won't go away

I have a 2001 Ranger Edge 4.0 6 cylinder. I got a code for the EGR valve about a year ago. When I changed it, the code would not go away. But I don't drive my truck that much and one day I started it up and the check engine light was off. Well, I took a trip this past weekend and the light came back on. Same code for EGR is coming up. Does anybody know what might be causing the EGR code. I have checked the wiring around it. The guy at Autozone said to try gas treatment, so I did that. Also, is it hurting anything if there is a problem with the EGR in some way?

Smile P0401 code

My Truck is reading a P0401 code for the EGR System, Heres a site I found to help with the Code I have, I hope it helps.

I'm Just going to Replace The DPFE in mine first because they Go bad more often then the rest of the EGR Components. I've Also put a vacuum to the top of the EGR valve and the Truck almost Stalled, So Supposedly the Valve itself is ok.
