Check under the throttle body on the right hand side. Should be a vacuum diagram under the hood somewhere.

Here is what I have. I have checked both locations no EGR valve.looking at both pics from STL and YRAC ,I think I know why. Where it shows YRAC's I have a plate covering where it should mount. So some one took it off or it never had one.The vac diagram under the hood does not show the EGR Valve. Now I need to purchase the valve and vac lines and install them. Does any one have the diagram for that?

Good catch! Yes, in that picture is the IAC valve. The EGR valve would be located on the drivers side, it attaches to the flange on the front of the upper intake manifold that is blocked off in that picture, right next to where the throttle body bolts on (like in Yrac's picture).

No EGR on the 88 Ranger. Mine did not have this and it was built in Sep-1987, but 1988 model year. 88+ computer is a good strait forward upgrade for 86-87 models, if someone were wanting to remove their problematic EGR system.
