Insufficient flow can be carbon in the EGR ports which would require removing the valve. It can also be the system the controls the valve.

There was another recent question on this with a link to actual diagnostics. Search this sit for posts on EGR.

Yes, there are testers (scanners) that can do this. You will however need to find a scanner that will work the Toyota airbag codes as all do not have this capability. When researching make sure the verbiage states it scan Toyota SRS codes and clear them.

What year is the car?
