Had EGR vale changed last week. Now transmission does not shift into a lower gear when slowing down. Makes engine sound like its laboring. 40 mph and engine at 1300 rpm. What's the fix?

If you floor it does it downshift? 40mph and feeling in the wrong gear at steady speed is kind of normal feeling for the stupid variable cylinder mgmt.

What? If I push the gas pedal more at 40, it'll downshift, the ECO light will go off, etc. Cruise and it comes back on.

OP- Why was the EGR valve changed?

I'd take it back to then and have them check their work?

Once you get to 50 mph and trans is in 5th, if you slow down to 35 or 30 mph it stays in 5th, rpms down to 1300 to 1500 rpms. Engine labors unless you floor it so it will down shift.
