Default EGR problem!

Anyone know where I can buy a new/used EGR valve for my '87 Bonnie? My car is telling me to Service Engine Soon with codes
code 32: "EGR System"

code 44: "Lean Exhaust"

I have been advised to get a new EGR valve but I'd be appreciative if anyone could tell me where to get some instructions to replacing it and maybe a pic of where it is in my 3.8L.

Thanks a bunch guys!

Most EGR Valves for that engine were located near the firewall behind the Throttle Body & next to the Fuel Rail. It looks like a bulbous part with a little cap on top.

Hey everyone, here'* a pic of my engine and I circled in red what I BELIEVE to be the EGR valve. Just a quick verification would be appreciated.

I'm goign to call around my local auto parts shops to find out their prices on the EGR valve but do you guys think it would be ok to take off one from a local junk yard? I know there'* one nearby that only has 50k miles on it but I'm not sure

( doubt the html code is correct.

Thanks,
Mike

Yeah that looks like the right part. A little hard to tell in the picture. I need to do the EGR valve in my 89 too I think. The Idle air control valve is gone as well.

Anyone know how hard those are to replace? I have looked at it and have the book somewhere in my library but have not looked up the prodedure for replacing that part.
