Phoeneous,

I donít have a picture of my installation. What is the make and year
of your vehicle? With this info I can look up the part nos. for your
EGR Valve and the EGR Valve Position Sensor that mounts on the back of
it (assuming yours is the same as mine). If the parts number are the
same as mine I can give you a website which shows actual views of the
parts. Even if yours arenít the same as mine and if views are
available for your vechile, I will provide you the info for locating
the views so you can use them to locate the parts on your vehicle.

The unit that you circled on your first picture is most likely a part
of your heating system, because it looks like its attached to the
heater hoses, as in my vehicle.

Phoenous,

You need to state the year and make of your vehicle. For instance the
EGR valve in my 96 Explorer 5.0L looks like the info that I provided
you and applies to my year and make. My carís ianstallation is also
like the info Fred2 provided you. However, for instance, at the site
www.rockauto.com which I previously provided you, it lists two
different Ford(Motorcraft) Valve Part Nos. for a 97 Explorer 5.0L and
they are significantly different. One is exactly like mine and the
other is very different and doesnít use an EGR valve position sensor.

For your vehicle, you must look at this site and determine which one
you have. Hopely, yours is like the second one and not like mine.
First the second one is smaller, half the price and doesnít require an
EGR valve position sensor.

Fred has shown you where on your intake manifold it is and you need to
compare yours to the 97 example that I gave to determine which one
your vehicle has.

Thank you to everyone who posted pics and provided information. I
finally got this finished, though it was tough getting the bottom nut
back on the EGR valve.

In the process, I noticed that one of the lines that runs to the
canister attached to the EGR spacer (vapor control solenoid?) was
cracked and broken. I managed to get it reconnected. My question is -
what does this part do? One line is connected to the EGR valve. I
wasn't able to trace the broken one. Am I liable to run into future
problems because of this?

Thanks again.
- Dave
