This vehicle had the EGR removed and I am trying to get it back to the stock configuration. The issue is the Pressure Feedback Sensor. Know it mounts on the bracket behind the throttle cable. It has just one hose connection and I don't know what it connects to. The service manual is no help.
A description or a picture of the hookup would be a big help.

Hooks to a nipple that comes off the EGR valve. Not the little vaccuum nipple, but the bigger one.

It looks like the EGR is missing the nipple to hook it up. there are 2 holes in the side of the valve body. one goes through to the exhaust side and the other is threaded:

Is there a fitting that attaches here?

You have to use the nipple from the old EGR valve. The nipple is about 3/8" long on the other side of the metal bracket, held in place by a T10 torx screw (on mine at least).

Thank you for the picture. Unfortunately the EGR valve was missing when I got the truck and I haven't had any luck locating a used one to get fitting off of. I Found one at the local Pik-A-Part today that had a blank plate to block the hole in the valve. I may have to make something if I can't find one.
