Question about Cars & Trucks
My 95 S10 cyl has a massive vacuum leak caused by the old hard lines cracking. I'm replacing the lines; however, I can't seem to get a clear picture on where my EGR solenoid is located. The valve is rather obvious so I can get plenty of ppl who think they know what they are talking about telling me how to find that. I also don't need to hear, "in the intake manifold" one more time unless you would like to tear that bad boy apart once more for me and point it out. Please and thank you!

It is located between the EGR valve and the intake vacuum source, one line gores to a vacuum port on the intake and the other to the EGR valve, just follow the lines.

If you have small hands it can be easy. The space between firewall and EGR is tight but it wasn't too difficult to remove. The vacuum hose at the bottom was hard to pull off and I ended up cracking it and had to splice it. It was more difficult to re-install the EGR then remove it. I had a difficult time with keeping the gasket aligned while bolting it in to the lower tube. I took a few attempts. I suggest when replacing the EGR leave the mounting bolts loose so you can more easily align the metal tube. I would tighten the metal tube at the bottom of EGR first then tighten the upper two mounting bolts on top. It took me about 5 minutes to remove and 15 minutes to replace. I would be sure to clean the IAC too after cleaning the EGR. I sprayed throttle bottle cleaner down the bottom hole located on the throttle body and let soak about 15 minutes then start and run the engine a minute and repeat the process. This helped smooth the idle while stopped at a light. It also stopped the idle from shaking and almost stalling the car out at a traffic stop when the engine was warm.

SOURCE: no vacuum to egr valve
there is an EGR vacuum solenoid somwhere that controls on/off vacuum to actuate the valve. i am not to sure of the location, but follow the vacuum line back from the egr until you find a device that looks like an electrical check valve for vacuum. that is a possibilty. but then again i am a ford,chrysler guy and am just giving you an answer based on my understanding of the functuality of a vacuum egr system

SOURCE: EGR Solenoid creates no vacuum
The EGR solenoid is located towards the rear of the car from the EGR vavle and slightly towards the center. It kind of stands on end. There is a vacuum line coming out the top (port C) and a green 2 wire connector plugged into it. Hope this helps.
