i owned a 86 Chevy 1500 it done the same thing if there is a ticking sound along with the steam out the exhuast you've broken a piston, and it has gone through the block then youll need a new engine ,or you have just blown a head gasket and water has seeped into a cylinder on the block . a good sign is water in the oil it will look milky colored. it can be fixed if you didnt warp the head if so just repace the head and head gasket and it should be just fine

What does a egr valve do?

The EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) directs exhaust gasses into the engine's combustion chamber via the intake manifold. The exhaust gasses are inert (do not support combustion) and displace oxygen that would normally be drawn into the engine during the intake stroke. Think of the engine as a vacuum pump and can only draw in a fixed amount of oxygen to be mixed with the fuel for ignition. The reason that exhaust gasses are drawn into the combustion chamber is to cool the exhaust. With less Oxygen in the fuel mixture the flame burns cooler and cooler exhaust temperatures result in lower NOX (oxides of nitrogen) emissions.
