Needed EGR Valve Replaced

My engine light came on, took it in to a local shop and they informed me that I had a EGR valve going bad and it needed to be replaced. They also said I would need to have the computer reprogramed after the replacing the valve. Does this sound right, and what is a typical cost for such a repair. I am no longer under any warranty so I have been searching for a reliable repair guy for the stuff I am not confident to do myself. Want to make sure I wasnt railroaded... Thanks for any info!!

Changing out the EGR valve is pretty easy and no reprogramming is called for.

What year is your truck? Some '06 & '07 need reflash, not EGR replacement.

Changing the EGR valve is really easy. Only 4 bolts 2 bolts to the head 2 to the pipe. I got one at autozone for 45 bucks. Did not get the computer reflased and havent had a CEL since.

The EGR valve is easy. What is a real chore is changing the 16 spark plugs. Getting to some of them is a real challenge.
