Unhappy 2001 Ford Mustang EGR valve problems, please help.

I am having a serious complication with my car, I got it scanned by my dad whose a mechanic and it was the egr valve, so i replaced it then and there and two days later the code popped up again, and i went back to him and scanned it again and it was still the egr valve. So we replaced the sensor and the light went away for about 5 days and then the light came back, i got it scanned at Checkers, Auto Zone and O'Riely's and my dads place again and it was the egr valve AGAIN, they all have no clue what the problem could be since i have replaced the valve, sensor and the fuel cap. I was hoping someone on here has had this problem and can point me in the right direction to make my car shine again.

Just wondering if you CLEAN the EGR passageways through the throttle body?

Did you confirm that the vacuum lines to/from the DPFE sensor are connected and leak free?

Why would you replace the gas cap for an EGR value problem? The gas cap is normally replaced for an EVAP problem.

You know you will get better help if you posted the full DTC code.

Are you sure that your Dad isn't made at you?

Screw all that. Get a Pepsi can...or Coke. Cut out a rectangle with a width the size of the pass through hole of the EGR. Loosen the 2 bolts enough to slide the piece of can in...tighten the bolts back down and viola. Car will run fine, but the C/E light will stay on.
