I found this picture--3.1L . #10 says to accessory, Other than hvac, I can't think of any other accessory that uses vacuum? If everything works ok, plug it. You could use a piece of vacuum line, block one end of it, the open end slip it over the port. At least, you won't have a vacuum leak.

did you clean the EGR passages? take the valve back off. one hole will have exhaust, the other should have strong vacuum.ususally the passage gets plugged with carbon, from the valve to where it goes into the intake manifold. you may take a wire and carb cleaner to clean the passage.

98 chevy lumina. Code 113, 102, 171. runs then

the code 113 is intake air temp cicuit, high input.
the code 102 is mass air flow volume air flow circuit, low input.
the code 171 is system too lean (bank 1)
I sure hope this helps you out. Dont sound like anything too major though
