Question EGR Solenoid

I bought a few parts one being a egr solenoid, well when I was looking for the old one, I realised that I didn't have that solenoid period *probably why I have a code 26* so I looked for whatever hoses I should have, and didn't see any. So my question is where should my 2 hoses be? Also, my egr valve isn't like the one in the haynes manual. The one in the manual is regular that's a few inches in diameter and has a diaphragm on the bottom.....The one I have is just a black canister so.......what is that I'm looking at?

Tell me if that picture is too hard to see, I can email you a slightly better picture.

You have what we call a linear egr valve. The solenoid is integrated with the valve. Only 91-94 saturns have egr solenoids. Hope this helps.

You have the linear EGR, which was on some early model Satty's and all (95 or 96, I think) and later, I believe. You don't mention what year you have.

Whoever is selling you parts without asking your year and engine is not doing you any favor . . . or are we talking garage sale/swap meet purchases?

And I believe you bought the part for a SOHC.

If the car is indeed a 94 then you have a California spec emmisions car. The EGR in the picture is a linear EGR. No EGR solenoid. Code 26 is a quad driver fault and there are eight things that could be causing the code. The EGR valve solenoid and the Cannister Purge solenoid are the two most common things. Obviously you don't have the EGR solenoid. Time to look at other things. If you have a Saturn store near you may be worth the money for them to diagnose the cause of the code. Try a search of the board for code 26. There will more posts on it than you want to think of but a few of them will list the eight things that can cause the code.

I don't believe it's a cali car.....I did a carfax on it and it says it's had 2 owners, the first being from new york, then it came to wyoming.....The person I bought it from said it had a rebuilt engine that it has about 7K miles on it and that he bought it off the original owner that did the rebuilt engine......Now....I don't know if it's the original engine or one you can buy at say Autozone......In any case, can just the EGR valve be swapped from a old one to that linear design, and vice versa? Or what all componants do you need to do that? I was thinking mine had to of been the old design cuz I have a threaded hole for the EGR solenoid, or did all the engines have that design in them?

Not sure but I have heard that some eastern states had the linear EGR's on them aka "California emmision spec". I believe that the linear EGR's on these cars used adaptors to get the linear ones on. How ever even if you could get the vacuum one on the car the PCM expects to see the linear one not a vacuum one. Won't work unless you change out more than the EGR. You shouldn't get stuck on thinking that you have an EGR problem. I know on the 95's we see code 32 for EGr concerns but we do not see any code 26's. No EGR solenoid to cause a code 26.

If you're interested in getting to the bottom of this, look at your options label on the piece of hardboard covering the spare tire. While mine are 96s, I suspect the option codes are the same. Both of mine, built for sale in NY State, show option NB6 (California Emissions) and NG1 (Regional Emissions Certification). I know that my 97, when I ordered it, was required to have "California" emissions equipment. I don't know how long before 1997 it was required in NY.
