What does the EGR tube do and where can I find that tube? The thing is that instead of falling off, it just tore at one of the bends on it, so my dad had foil tape and stuck a piece around it so it would stop hissing, but when we accelerated the engine, the exhaust coming from the tube blew off that small piece. Now I have the tape but what I'm thinking of doing is just wrapping a longer piece many times, that way, it won't leak exhaust fumes from there.

Do you have any spare PCV caps for the upper plenum of the intake manifold. If so, how much are they or where can I get one. I've considered looking in a junkyard.

Can you send me a picture of the lower EGR tube (manifold to sensor)?

I don't have a picture that I can find. But this site has hard to find parts. http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...layCatalogid=0
