  1. - EGR solenoid electrical connector
  2. - EGR vacuum harness

The EGR solenoid (4) is mounted to a bracket attached to the battery tray in the engine compartment. The EGR solenoid serves two different functions. One is to control vacuum bleed-off of the EGR valve. The other is to control the "on time" of the EGR valve.

Removal

1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
