Dealer has the car now. Wants $1500 to replace the part. What are my options? Car is just
Under 100k miles. Only symptoms were more than usual smoke at acceleration and low idle

welcometomyturbodiesIf you're sure the problem is the EGR, replace the EGR.

Here is how - it's very easy. I don't know how much the part is but the part number is there and you can find the part user at a junkyard.

Also look through the new owner checklist and maintenance checklist for maintenance items that you may have overlooked.

Thanks for the help. I find nothing in the regular scheduled maintenance lists addressing
The EGR. I will pull the part and proceed from there. Also replacing the fuel filter
