Typical EGR problems on a higher-mileage car-
-clogged passages
-EGR valve sticking open or closed
-control valve or solenoid defective
-bad EGR valve gasket

Poor idle quality, and/or stalling after driving and coming to a stop, are possible signs of an EGR valve sticking open. Knocking under light load can be caused by a valve stuck closed or insufficient flow.

wel i just wanted to know the general problems the BD legacy gt's are known for. and i wanted to see if egr was one of those problems. it could be just a simple on of what you said. i just figured this might be something close to a defect from factory or something.
