    Hey guys! I had been having trouble with my car having a low idle and asked you guys for some help a while back. I've had many suggestions on what it could be to fix it but none of them were working so I bought myself a nice $30 code reader and pulled the codes, 327 C (EGR valve position circuit below minimum voltage) and 558 O (EGR valve regulator solenoid circuit fault). Can anyone tell me where this would be in the engine bay? Thanks :)

    The only two things I know of that are under the hood and deal with controlling the EGR valve, are the two items that mount onto the middle of the firewall - close behind the EGR valve. My Escorts are all 2nd gen units - I dont know if the 3rd gen Escorts are different or not.
