Hose may of popped off.
EGR is on the driver side on the intake. It has the black cover.
There is also an EDR solenoid that is attached to the valve cover.

More likely the solenoid than the actual valve. You can check the valve by sucking on the hose to see if the diaphram is intact. You should not be able to suck air thru the hose to the valve if the diaphram is good.

No, I don't. Before you try a new one, you might try cleaning the small filter that is under the cap on the egr solenoid...if it is plugged up, it will not work correctly.

egr solenoid is on the rear of the ds valve cover...just follow the hose from the egr valve to it.

thanks.steve i drove up to a fellow members house today;his name is RICH and he is from BLOOMFIELD NEW YORK he and his brother own turbo buicks.he plugged his laptop into my car and all the numbers read good but,he thinks it is running realrich and may be the stock regulator so,i bought a replacement one for the 89ta i think the last numbers read 237 i'll slap it on tommorrow if it's not that then it seems it would have to be this egr and/or the injectors .RICH was a really super friendly and nice guy ;i look forward to future encounters like the one i had today.i like this whole buick scene it's really a good vibe atmosphere!
