Half way through this tank I unplugged the EGR actuation solenoid(N-18). I placed a 1200 ohm resistor into the plug end so the computer will see a load and not throw a CEL for absence of the solenoid. The only time I get a CEL is when the engine is cold, and I get on the throttle. If it's cold, and I baby the throttle until it is warmed up, I don't get a CEL. This is a premptive test mod to see if I notice any MPG increase with EGR deleted. If I notice an increase in MPG's(or other benefits)I will progress to a more complicated "Dynamic" EGR scheme.
