I don't think that's the EGR valve that the shop is talking about for that kind of dollar figure. More likely the injectors or injector pump....accordianman

SOURCE: 1987 toyota 22r engine

That is usaully the vacuum advance diaphram on the distributor. Its job to advance the distributor when at idle. The diaphrams inside rot and leak air, causing it not to advance. Take off the distributor cap and use a vacuum pump to individualy test each port (two of them) on the vacuum advance diaphram. You should see it pull back, if not replace it. They are sold at your local auto store, oddly its cheaper to get a whole distributor that has one for $100 that to get it alone for $150.

Take off air breather tube,you should see a cone shaped part, on top and at back of engine right by the gas pedal cable. Remove the 2 10mm bolts, and it should come right off.

SOURCE: I have a 2003 GMC sonoma with a 4.3L Vortec V-6. I

The mid-02 and up do not have an EGR valve. GM redesigned the 4.3L and introduced it in the middle of the 2002 production run. The fuel injection spider, EGR system, knock sensor type, and a few other "refinements" were made at that time.
Have a scan tool capable of opening and closing the related solenoids in the EVAP system to verify that they were working? Did you check the engine for smoke in the intake that would result from a malfunctioning EVAP purge solenoid? If the purge solenoid were stuck open, then it could act similar to a failed or failing EGR valve.

Have a shop with a dyno, do a Drive cycle to refine the problem. Here is a link on what a drive Cycle is.

Good luck and hope this helps. You can always go to Auto Zone and have them scan the truck for any codes, it just may time for a tune up. Not know how the truck has been taken care of before you, try add Marvel Mystery Oil to the engine 1000 miles before it's oil change. That should clean up any internal dirt and do not use any engine oil flush, that just promotes oil leak.
Keep me posted on how things are going, I also found that the only thing the GM 4.3 like is the OEM distributor cap and rotor, every after market gave me a rough running engine.

96 sonoma running too rich with p1406 code

P1406 EGR Valve Pintle Position Circuit Fault
This code is usually caused by carbon buildup in the EGR valve. The carbon deposits prevent the valve from closing completely.

After removing the EGR valve, clean the pintle seat area of the valve and the corresponding passageway in the engine.

or simply replace the EGR valve.

Hope this helps!

My gmc sonoma (1996) 2.2 wants to stall when slowing to a stop and i cant figure out if its the IAC or the egr system do you have any suggestions?

the iac, when you start the truck cold does it idle up and then slowly drop? remove the egr valve and make sure theres no carbon holding the valve open, then drive it with the vale hose dissconected and see if it stalls, if it doesnt stall with the valve hose removed and pluged then i would say the egr valve, but if it still stalls then it may be the valve, also make sure the throtle body and the plate is clean, use old tooth brush and some crab cleaner to clean, do this with engine off, try these things first,
