Having trouble with my car. When it is on a red light or stop sign it likes chokes like its not giving fuel. I tap the gas pedal and it goes. I took it to the shop a couple of months ago to a merchanic and he said it was the Egr valve. He cleaned it it looked dirty. So he said, If it gave me more problems that i would have to replace it and buy a new one. Is this mechanic saying the truth about my car. Whats wrong with my car?

Did it run better after he cleaned the EGR valve? If so then, yes, if you replace it you should be ok.
