    Thinking about it again I'm fairly sure it was the 2000 3.8 Camaro that used the triple solenoid style.

    The solenoids are directly on top of the EGR.

    For my memory, what car is this and what is he problem?

    EGR only kicks in at certain parameters. Something like steady state rpm at a steady speed for a period of time.
    Can you clear the codes? If you can do they come back immediately or just after being driven in a way that matches above?

    I 100% know what the fault is now I've looked closer Someone has removed the entire EGR valve solenoid body ! LOL Nice blanking plate all painted up that gave no clue until I started to look into the system. Another bit to get in from Roack auto as I'm getting replacement gaskets anyway.

    If it was your own car then ignoring fault cars is okay, but when you try to sell it people will knock you down on price. Unless you can get them to understand its from the EGR removal and it all is fine.

    How many people bring a code reader to a purchase, and even if the SES light is on a test drive shows it runs ok.
    But if it was me I would just tune out the EGR. Probably cheaper than a tri-solenoid EGR anyway?

    Having had one purchaser walk away for reasons unknown I'll fix the problem rather than it look like I'm trying to pull a fast one ." Yeah mate, they all came with only 3 wheels to improve the cornering "
