    Did the intake manifold get cleaned too? It’s the last leg of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation circuit, has a large intake gallery, and four capillary passages, one at each port. Pay special attention to the latter. Brake cleaner and brushes/rags will do the trick. A skinny pipe cleaner type brush is good for the capillaries.

    Not sure. I didn't do the work myself. My buddy is a competent mechanic and I am sure he looked into it before he tackled the job.
