The car doesn't have a mass air flow sensor. A 1998 is speed density and only has a map sensor.
Replacing the EGR valve for a low flow code is putting the cart before the horse. Without testing to see if the valve actually works, and whether the port in the intake is blocked. A very, very, very common issue on V6s. (blocked port)
You need to pull the upper intake and manually clean out the port in the upper intake. Take off the EGR valve and clean the port from the lower intake to the EGR base in the water crossover.
Once you're done cleaning it out, clear the codes. Test drive the car and within the first 5 miles or so, get it over 60 and coast for at least 5 to 10 seconds, it will test the EGR system for flow during this time. The light should stay off as long as the ports are clear.
Do a search, there's several good threads with pics.
