Pretty easy actually. The egr valve is that flyin' saucer lookin' thing on top of the engine next to the Upper Intake Manifold. You'll see it back near the firewall of the engine bay on the driver side. Should be two bolts holding it onto the UIM, and perhaps a larger nut on the underside, I'm not certain. It is very rare for the EGR valve to need replacement in these cars. Try searching for the Check Engine Light code on a contour web site & you should find plenty of info on how to fix your problem with minimal fuss. Typical causes for emissions related CELs are the DPFE sensor (easy fix), cleaning out the EGR passages behind the throttle body (easy fix), often both.
