LE/ 100K + MILES/ WHERE IS EGR VACUUM SOLENOID?

1997 Toyota Camry

Hi, I have a 1997 toyota camry and was told by a mechanics that the EGR solenoid needs replacing.

He said the thing is at the back of the engine but I'm not sure which one it is. Can anyone tell me which one component in the picture is the EGR solenoid?

That is the brake lines you encircled. On your engine picture behind the intake manifold. The big round metal is the EGR (The one on the right side). The one on the left side is a small round black plastic with letters P, R, and Q. That is the EGR vacuum modulator. Follow the letter "Q" rubber hose, the other end is connected to the VSV solenoid for EGR. Also, the rubber hose connected to the EGR (the big round metal) is also connected to the VSV solenoid of EGR. The solenoid is underneath the intake manifold with an electric wire connected in it..

The picture on that auto parts warehouse is the EGR vacuum modulator. I do not know why they call it solenoid.
