Default Changing an egr valve

Hi everyone glad to be on an awesome forum. I have a 1997 ram 2500 and it has a tick or pinging sound after the engine warms up. I was told that it could be the egr valve. It does have power loss but everything else is working good. Good oil pressure and water temp is good not overheating or anything. I was wondering how easy it was to replace the egr valve on it. I understand that the upper part of the engine needs taken off. I am pretty good at doing things myself but didn't want to get into things to deep. Anyone with some help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

An EGR valve that is working would actually prevent any pinging sounds as it inhibits combustion. Did you test the EGR valve from solenoid operation to valve diaphragm operation?

Default egr

I have not tested it because i need to take the upper intake off and have not been able to get to it yet. Thanks for the reply. I was just going to put a new engine in it but they are hard to find and pretty expensive.
