    I am new to the site. I have a 1988 Chevy Cheyenne 1500, 350 5.7 TBI with about 169000 miles on it. I love this truck, but . . . I have an egr issue that I cannot resolve. I have replaced the egr and the egr vacuum solenoid. When the egr vacuum hose is plugged in, the truck has a rough idle and very bad hesitation at take off. When the egr vacumm hose is unplugged, the truck runs great, I discovered this while checking the hoses for leaks, but the check engine light comes on on interstate drives. Switch off and back on, no light. I have it unplugged but have a fuel filter stuck in the end of the hose to help filter the air intake. I would greatly like your input on this so that I can rightly correct this problem.

    I am SurrealOne of Borg. Lower your truck and surrender your keys. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile. Erm, I mean ... welcome to GM Truck Club! :great:

    I recommend posting your inquiry in the technical sections of the forum -or- the section specific to your vehicle. You'll reach a wider group of the forum members that way ... and target your inquiry more directly to those who might already have experience with it.

    Welcome to the site! As I'm not too tech savvy, but I bet you'll have a lot better luck elsewhere in the forums! Good luck and let us know how it goes!
