Jimmy has problems starting when its cold. the egr code popped can this cause a starting hesitation problem?

Yes the egr valve could cause starting problems. If it is sticking open it would cause a huge vac leak.
I would want to know what the trouble codes are in the computer first. Those codes would help a mechanic nail down the problem area and what to check.

The 71 code is related to the EGR system.
Underneath the intake manifold, it bolts on at cylinder # 4. or first from the drivers side. It is found right under the EGR Modulator. Disc like device with two vacuum line on the pasenger side and one vacuum line on the driver side. Best way to get to it is to remove the intake manifold. you need to replace it to get the problem fixed

I have a 94 4runner that is flashing a 71 code. can anyone tell me what is broken?

Code 71 is EGR or The EGR VSV. The ufo delie next to the egr. Might even be the temp sensor inside the egr. I would replace all three. Or even check your vacuum lines, they may be routed wrong!
