Depends on the EGR valve. A good lot of them can be cleaned and reused. New ones can costs hundreds of dollars.

The EGR valve works by routing a small amount of the exhaust gases back into the combustion chamber.

See the Related link for more information.
To clean the EGR valve, you may be required to remove the vacuum hose and clean out the carbon deposits.

If you have changed your egr valve and deleted the code and it still reads p0401 egr valve insuffasante flow what do you do now?

You also need to clean the "passages". EGR valve puts exhaust gas back into the engine intake under less than full power situations. When that happens exhaust deposits build up on the walls of the passages. Replacing the EGR valve was only half the repair, you also need to clean it out. There is a tube from under the EGR valve to the exhaust manifold. That is probably blocked.

The EGR valve and electrical transducer should be replaced at the same time as they are matched. Remove EGR transducer from the air inlet duct. Disconnect vacuum supply tube from EGR transducer solenoid. Remove air inlet duct. Remove EGR tube to EGR valve screws. Remove EGR valve mounting screws. Remove EGR valve and transducer. Clean gasket surfaces. Discard old gaskets. If necessary, clean EGR passages. Loosely install EGR valve with new gaskets and finer tighten EGR tube fasteners. Tighten tube fasteners to 95 in lb, tighten EGR valve mounting screws to 200 in lb. Install air inlet duct. Connect vacuum supply tube to solenoid. Attach electrical connector to solenoid. Install EGR transducer onto air inlet duct.
