Re: EGR System photos 83 4.1
The solenoid has 3 nipples. 2 facing forward, one facing back to the EGR valve. The upper nipple facing forward should have NO hose to it. The lower nipple has ported vacuum to it. The rear facing one goes to the EGR valve. The upper nipple, from the factory, had a little foam filter on it to keep residue out of the solenoid. It is not a vacuum nipple, its a vent for the solenoid.
