Question about 1995 Chevrolet S-10 CA Edition
SOURCE: Can't find Egr Solenoid
As you are looking in the eng compartment from the front of the vehicle,look for the master cyl booster, the big round thing that is attached to the master cyl on the fire wall. now the EGR value will be just to the left of the booster. you should see three values there one on top the other two below, just like a triangle, the EGR is the bottom right value or the closet one to the boost. Hope this helps please let me know how you make out I'm trying to get a picture for you.

Take off your EGR valve and clean it out with carb cleaner also
grease tyhe little screw thing in it,,, u will c what i mean if u take it apart. carbon builds up in the chamber. it is located at the back left side of your engine and is a bit of a pain to take off. this should save u the cost except for the cleaner and labor. i had the same problem cheapest i found was 90$ on ebay.

This problem comes up alot. First, this is an emissions part and they have a longer warranty than the rest of your vehicle. Sometimes its 8 years and 80000 miles. That said you might want to at least call the dealer to see if they will honor the warranty.
Next, if they do not help you then here are a few ideas. One-the blocked passage is common problem especially on aluminum intake manifolds. You take off the air filter and ductwork up to the metal "air horn". Then look to see where the EGR valve is (round pot shaped 4"). You can remove this part and check if it is dirty and if it holds vacuum by putting a finger on the vacuum hole and pressing the valve up into the casing. If it does not hold vacuum it is bad. If the EGR is good you may want to take the "air horn" off (8 bolts) and clean underneath it and replace the gasket.
At this point you have checked 1/2 of the possible problems. You should disconnect the battery while you reinstall the "air horn" and air filter ductwork. This should take at least 10 minutes which will allow the computer to clear the trouble code. Reconnect the battery and drive your vehicle.
If still a problem, replace the Solenoid for the EGR. It has 2 vacuum lines and at least 1 electric connector and part of it runs to the EGR. Good Luck. If the dealer does not help you then my sequence will allow you to fix this with the least cost.
