Hey man, just read your post about a simple cleaning of the EGR valve instead of replacing it. Did this take care of it since then, or did the light come back on. Also, any suggestions on the cleaning technique? Thanks man.

Yes, the cleaning has fixed the problem and the light has not come back on. As far as the cleaning technique I have no idea as the mechanic did it for us. As far as I know it was when he removed the part to replace it that he discovered it only needed to be cleaned. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Please note that MyRide18902 is correct, brought my 2008 Mazda CX7 to the dealers today because the check engine light has been on. After agreeing to the $150 inspection charge, they came back to tell me that they need to replace the EGR vale and would cost me $800.
After finding this post on the internet, and looking at the Emission Standard, I went back to the service representative and he still stated it was not covered for my car.
I had to call another dealership to find out from their service reps that it WAS covered. Only then would the serivce rep talk to his manager.
Lesson learned, the service reps at Galpin Mazda (15430 Roscoe Blvd, Van Nuys) are un-trust worthy and greedy. Will not go back to that dealership again.

Could you please let me know where you get your extended warranty. I am looking for extended warranty but it is difficult to find one that is trustworthy.

Pretty strange, since the dealer doesn't pay for warranty repairs, so far as I know; the manufacturer does.
I bought by 2008 FEH from Galpin, and it has always been serviced there. Except for one time when they took too long, I have had nothing but good luck with them. Maybe the Mazda folks are different...
