No, there is not, just slip the tube in and bolt it down.

Take the pipe off, bet you have a cracked pipe. I think I have 2 of them if you need one.

It'* very common for the EGR tube going to the LIM to crack. If you slide the holding piece back once it'* off the engine and hold it up to the light, you most likely will see light.

BTW not important for this thread but the stovepipe is a NA motor thing. It sits on top of the LIM and funnels the EGR gasses through the stovepipe in order to get above the plastic of the UIM w/o cooking it. They are press fit into the LIM.

Ya, I was going to mention that. His first post threw me off, but the second post I knew exactly what he was talking about.

Please keep the posts constructive and helpful. When having a problem with vacuum and CEL codes, you realize how frustrating it might be to see a post like this.
