Standard Motor Parts makes it as well.

Source for Valve

Hi There!

It's actually a Heater Bypass valve, not an EGR. It was on late 90s Ford Ranger trucks (when they ask for engine size, just go with smallest). You should be able to pick it up at...

Glad it worked out!

If you can make a picture of your valve installation and post it, it might help out the next guy.

Thanks.
