Question about Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Hard to find parts can be located in a few minutes to a few days; have never been unable to find what I need. Usually several listings are found and I can choose from very competitive pricing by using a national parts locator. There are several to choose from either online or most auto salvage yards, as well as family owned/operated parts stores offer this service free of charge. I enjoy using the online locating services, they will notify you via email with search results. I don't have any particular favorite site, but www.partstrain.com is the first one that pops in my mind. Good luck :)

We would need to know the make, model, and year first of all.
But it would be a lot easier to just make your own EGR pipe out of soft copper tubing.
All you need to do is pick the closest size to the original.
But I have never heard of a ERG pipe going bad in a way any sensor could detect.
It is more likely a gasket is just leaking or something.
You need to check the EGR for leakage or being clogged.
Both can be fixed without replacing any parts usually.
The trick with ERG is that it is not supposed to open at idle or high speed.
It only is to open in mid range.
So with a cold engine, check if the ERG stays cold.
If not, then it is leaking.
If it is cold at idle, then manually activate it either with a vacuum source or electrically.
The idle should almost die as the ERG then does get hot.
