Question about 1993 Dodge Dakota
If the exhaust manifold is running that hot, it means that combustion is taking place there instead of in the cylinders where it belongs.
It may be a fire hazard as well since EGRs are designed to withstand the high heat of the exhaust manifold and if it is hot enough to damage the EGR, it is hot enough to cause other problems.
If you drive it at night, look under the hood to see if the exhaust manifold or header are glowing.
By 'siloined' I think you meant to write 'solenoid' and to my knowledge, there is no such animal.
The EGR is controlled by engine vacuum and allows a small amount of exhaust gases to be routed to the intake which is supposed to decrease the amount of noxious gases the engine produces.
It is a mechanical device whereas a solenoid is electrical.
Unfortunately, it also can reduce gas mileage by a significant amount; 5-10% in my experience, even when operating as it should.
I don't know why running out of gasoline should cause the problem but it sounds as if your ignition timing is way late and I can't imagine that the truck runs as before and is probably eating gasoline too.
I suggest you have the ignition timing checked soon since you may destroy the catalytic convertor too (if it isn't already dead) or set fire to grass or weeds.
