it's the funny circle shaped deal with a hose from it to your throttle body and has other vacum hoses on it. It also has a tube frome the exhaust manifold prolly on your driver side about level with where the exhaust is.

The reason you cannot find the EGR on your 1988 Ranger,
is because it was not equipped with EGR from the factory.

Please describe symptoms. Good starting point is pulling codes. Tune up is recommended if not done so.

Easy to do on an '88. Check out this link:

Troublcodes.net Trouble Codes OBD & OBD2 Trouble Codes and Technical info & Tool Store. By BAT Auto Technical

All you need to do is put the jumper (small piece of wire, paper clip, etc) from the small separate square connector, into the diagnostic connector shown in the pictures (there's 4 diagrams, you only need to follow one - bottom pictures). This will cause all of the diagnostic codes to be "blinked" out of the check engine light from inside of the truck. 11 is no problem found, but the site goes into more details as far as running the tests themselves.
