There is a diagram for that system under the hood above the radiator, the 2 lines go to 2 exhaust tubes, one is pressure and one is reference, the hose size is different so you can't get them mixed up, the EGR "box" is the EGR pressure transducer and the signal from that controls the EGR through the Power Train Control Module AKA the PCM. You have to use special
Hi-temperature silicone rubber hoses from the Ford dealer, ordinary rubber hose will just burn up in short order, they are around $15-20

Nikki, sorry I don't have any pictures of your EGR valve but a lot of parts stores have on line catalog so you can see what it looks like. The EGR valve is there a two bolts that hold it to the intake manifold should be a 10 mm head and they are going to be tight so make sure you use a good quality 6 point socket. On your engine the EGR vavle bolted to the intake manifold between the throttle body and the distributor. It is kind of a mushroom shaped thing with a rectangular base made of cast iron. The round mushroom looking part has a small vacuum hose going to it. Also, if you going to be doing you own repairs you really need a manual. A Chilton's book for that rig should only be about fifteen bucks, if you really can't buy one check out the library. Also, there is not a lot you can do to make a dead EGR valve work again. If it is stuck open you might be able to clean it with some carb cleaner in a spray can, but it will just get stuck again. You might solve your problem temporarily by just disconnecting it. The engine wont care if it's not working, just pull the vacuum line off and plug it with a small screw or golf tee.

What is DTC code P1491? 1997 Honda Accord

hi, "EGR Valve Lift Insufficient Detected" is most often caused by a broken vacuum line going to the EGR valve. So I would check all the vaccum lines to be sure they are tight and not broken.If the vacuum lines are good, you will need to check the electronics that operate the EGR system. thanks

1998 dodge ram error code 1494 check engine light on and poor gas mileage

Check all tubing and junctions for leaks in the fuel evaporation control system. The ECU has detected an issue with intake manifold pressure and is indicating that fuel vapour recovery system is perhaps to blame. Sometimes this can be connected to a fault in the manifold differential pressure circuit which lies on the vacuum line leading to the EGR valve. Also quickly check that the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve is OK by connecting and reconnecting its vacuum line and listening to engine note changes. No engine note change indicates the EGR is probably jammed shut with exhaust crud and needs a general clean up. Sometime these codes detect the symptom and not the cause so you just have to work your way back and eliminate what it might be.
