Go to Lowes and in the plumbing section just start looking for flexible gas line and the fittings. It takes a while but it can be done,because i did it. It was a total PITA to do though. I believe i had to buy some copper tubing that fit the inside diameter of the flex hose -cut off a small piece and flare the end and hose clamp the flex line to it.

old thread revisited.

I know this is an old thread, and I thought about starting a new one. But there is nothing like having all the information in one place.

So my questions, is the Dorman Part #598108 good for an 87 w\460 -C6 -CC-4x4 (I gotta get a shorter truck!). Just found mine was broke after tearing off the heads. I've been chasing an exhaust leak for years, even ordered the 'special' Hedman Headers gasket for the headers. Rock Auto do not list an EGR tube for my vehicle. But that one is listed for both 250's and 350's for 1990.

What are the symptoms of a cracked egr tube?
I replaced the 3 major componants of the ger system, as it was throwing a bad egr code.
I did find my tube broken at the joint where the flex part meets the solid part of the tube. I thought I had fixed it with a piece of copper tubing, hose clamps and high heat fire place caulking. But now i wonder if I still have a bad leak causing my truck to run like severe crap.

If I remember right, the egr tube disappears under the plenim. Do I have to remove the plenim in order to replace or fix the tube better?

I see them in the salvage yards all the time. eBay is also a good source.

I just spent about $300 for new tube and valve and still not working. I hate to override the code but I need to smog my truck so I bought the eliminator you spoke of. Where exactly does that it plug into the wiring harness?
