the engine check light on ANY car means there is somthing wrong with the engine probably that it has overheated Yes, it can mean that your car is overheating, but it also can be one of many emmisions problems. Your best bet is either take it to a good mechanic, or buy a good book, such as a Haynes Manual for it, and it will explain what you need to check/replace.

What would cause the check engine light to stay on on a 1996 Geo Tracker and the code to say EGR malfunction when the EGR valve is new?

After replacing the EGR valve, use the diagnostic tool and erase codes then read the codes again. I had the same problem on my 97 geo metro. After replacing the egr valve, the check engine light stayed on. After a while it was suppose to clear itself but it didn't. So I went to autozone borrowed their diagnostic tool, erased the codes and then my car passed and the check engine light went off.

They will hook it up to the cars computer and it will give the code to the dyignostic computer and they will tell you what the code stands for and than you will find out that is wrong with your car.
