Code 32 is the egr system, if you are getting a rough idle then this may be your problem, check the EGR valve, this system has a few parts the valve and the vacuum control solenoid , the valve may be bad or have carbon stuck in pintle or solenoid is bad and allows vacuum to open it at idle when it is not suppose to. try to remove vacuum line and see if idle smooths out if not remove the valve and see if it is open, if it is something you can clean then do so otherwisr replace it and also the solenoid.

when you remove the valve start the engine it will rev high but thats okay, with engine running you will see two ports, one should have vacuum and the other exhaust, make sure they are not plugged, if so unplug them. start with this.

Barring any mechanical issues you most likely have a failed injector.

SOURCE: dtc code p0121 and p2135 2007 chevy malibu

both codes refer to the throttle position sensor, the sensor is at the throttle plate, on the side of the throttle body. to test remove the connector to sensor, use a ohms meter to test. put 1 lead to top connection and the other to the bottom one. move throttle and the needles on the ohms meter should move very even, move throttle slow to get a good reading, needle should move without no hesitation, if the test is bad replace tps sensor. if the sensor gets to bad, it can have an effect on transmission shifting. after fixing sensor have the light turned of with an obd2 scanner.

Car: 94 Chevy caprice, 5.7L engine/port fuel injection Problem: very hard cold starts, rough idle at cold temperatures and stalling at low idle(when able to start after minutes of continuous cranking)...

Have your temp sensor checked. It may not be setting off a code but a sign of a failing temp sensor is hard starts, rough idle, until the car heats up. It sends a code to the ECM to help adjust fuel mixture. If it sends gals readings, the computer will adjust the fuel-air ratio and cause vehicle to run too lean until warmed up. Some people have had to keep pumping the gas pedal to keep it going from a bad temp sensor.

What does trouble code 32 mean for a 93 chevy 1500 with a 5.7 motor

EGR valve is bad under the hood. Costs around $80 but a simple fix. Located under your air cleaner, round cylinder type looking device with a single small hose going to it. Remove and try sucking on the inlet part that the hose was hooked to-the diaphram should pull up from underneath easily as you put vaccum to it. If it does not - replace and the rough idle youve been getting will go away.

My 1993 Chevy Caprice keeps cutting off when I first start it up, It has done that for the last 4 times straight.Once it is running there is no problem though.

Check for vacuum leaks, Idle air control failure, and/or fuel pressure regulator leaking fuel into the vacuum line.

I have A 1993 gmc jimmy,It has A rough idle,idels low,& the rpm seems to pulsate.The service light cam on I ran it & came up with code # 32.what would cause this.

this is related to the egr system and makes sense when you describe a rough idle. the egr is probably stck open slightly. remove and attempt to clean with carburretor cleaner. it also helps to have a vacuum pump so you can work the diaphragm up and down. happy holidays
