Purge Valve & EGR...Am I screwed?

Hey Guys,

I had a problem with my EGR and MAS. Well I bought brand new MAS and changed it - that fixed it. Then I changed the EGR valve as well. Now I am getting the purge valve error code??? PO 441

Here is what I have done:
I could not get the EGR line cleaned (yes it was that stuffed), so I decided to bypass it with one that I created. Well, everything worked well untill I had to bolt it on to the intake side, where it connects with 2 bolt. One of them broke while I was truing to bolt it in... obviously I could not test it with only one bolt, so I decided to shut down the intake manifold opening (close it with a metal pin), and it did stay in place pretty well. On the other end, (EGR end), I left the line hanging and to spill exhaust gases in the athmosphere.

Do you honestly think that I may be getting the PO 441 code because of what I have done??? I checked the Purge valve and it it working (Clicks). You can almost hear it clicking.

I really do not know what will I do if this is causing it to throw that code... With the space being so limited at the intake manifold, where I snapped the bold, there is no way I can remove it...I did try it, but unfortunately it is cut pretty short (I tried to get a unt and tighten it)

Please, help!!! I have to pass emissions test soon, and my light is ON...

I do not understand why would it matter for the Purge valve if there is no connection between the EGR and the intake manifold, but who knows...

Thanks

Just b/c the purge valve is clicking does not mean it is allowing vac to pass..it simply means it is getting a signal and the pintle inside is working.
You want to see if the lines are plugged or broken ansdif the purge side of the valve is sucking with the frequency of the valve...

So, the problem is not the EGR valve not conecting with the intake manifold?
