E.G.R. valve 94 Camaro V6 problem

94 Camaro V6 auto Digital three vale E.G.R. valve Diagnosis shows all three solenoids failed. Removed and cleaned out all three valves and contacts. Replaced with new gadket. Still have
same codes. Service tech said that was unusual all three failed.
Is this unusual? Any else to check? Thanks

The best thing to do with that EGR valve is remove the electrical plug from it, and run the car without it- you will get increased part throttle and WOT response, better driveability, and more power. Run 89 octane fuel at least.
EGR means exhaust gas recirculation- it puts exhaust in the intake stream to reduce emissions of NOX- (oxides of nitrogen)- but the downside is, burned fuel can't burn again, it dilutes the incoming fuel, and you have less power.
I'm running a ' 95 Pontiac GTP with 3.4 liter DOHC V-6, the EGR has been disconnected for the last 5 years and I put 50,000 miles on it that way. You will get a check engine light occasionally and a code, ignore it. The car runs 200% stronger with no EGR
Before 1973, no American cars even had EGR- it was shoved down the automakers throats by the government- to sell cars- otherwise the cars would not meet the dumb ass liberal emission laws. Sharp mechanics have been unplugging those EGR's ever since.
The newer EGR systems 2000 year model and newer, seem to be better designed and you can keep those connected- but for the first 25 years or so, 1973 on up, the cars run much better with EGR disconnected.
Using an EGR valve is like trying to run your gas grill with burned gas fumes, instead of fresh propane. It just doesn't burn after it's been burned once already. It was a way to get combustion temperatures down in the engine, by extinguishing the flame front a bit with exhaust gas- otherwise they'd have to inject something else in there to cool the burn. With spent exhaust gas available in the exhaust ports, they simply reported some of that exhaust into the intake stream. It's a dumb ass idea in the first place.
NO racing vehicles use EGR- it is a stupid assed emission device that robs power.

Don't listen to this deluded dorkwad, Charlie Nudo. He's an eBay petty theif and Usenet spammer/pest, and is a BS artist supreme.
