EGR valve

would a faulty EGR valve cause my engine to run hot? i know it takes burned gases and sends them back into combustion chamber to lower combustion temps and reduce the formation of NOx. if its not functioning properly or at all temps are gonna be higher right? i think someone modified it so it wont work. i have a metal pipe on my catalytic converter that looks like it was crimped shut and im not sure if that where a tube for my EGR goes. ill try to get a pic tomorrow, but does anybody have any help for me?
