yes it runs off vaccum from the engine, it only works when the car is at cruising speed, not at idle or flat foot.

Why does the engine die when you turn off or disengage the ac?

There is usually a solenoid that boosts the idle when A/C is turned on. If the car stalls when solenoid disengaged; the curb idle adjustment is off. Find the screw and give it a half-turn CW. Or, sometimes the end of the solenoid is the curb-idle adjustment . Put a wrench on it and try giving It a half-turn clock wise.

What is the function of an EGR Valve on a 88 Nissan sentra?

The EGR valve and the EGR sensor work together. The EGR gas temperature sensor is mounted near the EGR valve. The sensor detects the temperature of the exhaust as it moves through the valve. The information is sent to the ECM and in turn the EGR on/off time is regulated precisely and more efficiently. Any malfunction with the EGR gas temperature sensor will set off a code 35 ( Info taken from HAYNES MANUAL)

Where is the egr valve on a 1994 3.0L V6 Ford Ranger?

I've been researching this as well, and have found others saying that some of these trucks aren't equiped with an EGR system. A truck without the egr will have a capped off spot right next to the Idle Air Control valve on the top-drivers side of the intake manifold. The EGR valve goes in this capped hole. My truck has the capped hole and no EGR.

If it is stuck open it will stall the engine at idle or run really rough. Stuck closed won't really affect it.
