That would be your EGR valve, wouldn't it? Yeah...vehicles don't like running properly when vaccum lines aren't plugged where they're supposed to be

That's the new FLEGR valve.

Floppy-EGR. Only found on certain models. Like yours, apparently...

If you look at the VIN, there'll be a special engine code W or Z...they came with that FLEGR option. Added 100hp!

Alright I just took a quick look and well the one I got to relplace it is kinda different, the top hole nozzel is in the middle and mine was on the side.. it still hooks up but does it work differently?? here is a picture


THEY are the same size its just the angle I took the picture on.. im just worried because the hole on the top is in a different place so maybe it doesnt work the same inside?



If its good then im ready to put her on and she if she runs!
