I recently purchased a new egr valve for the one that has been in there since I believe the car was built
in 1988 so it looks ancient but still worked. Wanting to upgrade more for a nice look then anything wrong with it
I surprisingly easily got the old one off and quickly was ready to install the new one. I put on the new gasket then
noticed the vacuum line port on the new egr valve is exacly opposite of the old one meaning it cannot connect it
to the tubing. I am able to turn it but only a little as it has little indentations to keep from going any further. Anybody
else run in to this problem when installing a new one? If so, what can I do besides buy more tubing to get it around the
other way and in my mind would look crappy..any help is always appreciated as I've always gotten good advice on the
Forums...thanks...Lee

I suspect the whole housing can be rotated (with a bit of persuasion), but I don't know for sure... so don't force it yet.

No doubt someone else will chime in to say what they've done.

To reply to what I got I it off Ebay and doesn't give a part number but I looked at the AC Delco one you mentioned
and it looks exactly the same with the neck or middle having that small part in the middle that looks like you could
turn it with a slim wrench. Everything fits but I cant turn the top to get the port to face the right way...Guess maybe that's
what I get for buying it off Ebay...

Just a friendly advice...there's a lot of crap on e-bay. Just because the price is low doesn't its good.
Get the AC-Delco EGR valve. It fits just like the original and no port direction problem.

When it comes to my two 88s, I put nothing but top quality parts / components on my fiero's.

Like few people say, you get what you pay for.

I knew I had read that somewhere. I had a look tonight and sure enough I found a nice "how to" by Bloozberry...

The EGR valve you got is probably fine.
