HI:KAKES

Yes in addition to making the repair you have to erase the trouble Codes that is stored in your cars OBD II computer ( ECM ) Electronic Control Module with either a Tech II Diagnostic computer or Auto Scanner and if the code comes back the first step is to check the circuit; wiring for shorts, Loose Connections etc. an also check the EGR for proper sealing and for vacuum leaks in the area / and re-check the ECM for any additional Trouble Codes

                          Hope This Helps

One follow up:  Clearing the code does not require specifically the Tech II Diagnostic computer or Auto Scanner as this can be done with just about any functional OBD-II Scan Tool, including some that are much less expensive than the Tech II

Links below to several under $150 and some less than $100

was the code cleared during the fix?.....if not it could take a few readiness (start) cycles to clear....

or you could find someone with a tuning program to turn the codes off and dump the whole system....
