Postby st165white » Mon Jul 01, 2019 4:56 pm

Hello,

I goy my 1988 st165 back in 2016. Did some repair work and at one point i am using the car as my daily driver, until smog expired :-( I took it to so many shops and no one wanted to (or can) repair it. I am no expert but i can clear see the EGR system is not connected, however i don't know what else other reasons. I want to get it fixed properly but i don't know where to get help, if you can recommend a garage or individual who are willing to repair it and pass smog, i am all for it. Please help. Thank you.

Is the EGR system still intact (just not connected)? Or is the original EGR system missing? Makes a big difference in what help looks like.

I can see the EGR modulator there and is not connected. But I don’t know if that’s all I need for EGR.

An EGR System for a USDM ST165 is as shown - less the vacuum lines. Is all this on your ST165?

Under your hood, you should have a sticker labeled "Vacuum Hose Routing Diagram". If yours is still intact, you can use that to see how the vacuum lines connect to the EGR Vacuum Modulator. the VSV (vacuum switching valve), and the EGR valve.

Otherwise, this link to a previous thread should be of help to you:
