1987 Thunderbird 3.8 California Car Failed Smog

Discussion in '1967 - 1988 Ford Thunderbird' started by Hawk, Sep 14, 2017.

  1. Hi folks I have a very clean 87 Thunderbird that failed smog. I was told I need to replace the egr vacuum amplifier it sits behind the alternator, ford no longer shows the part or even a part number does anyone have any info. that could help. I was told if the car won't pass smog the state would buy it, I just don't want to see that happen, it would end up being squished.

  2. Do you have the part on your vehicle now?

    If so, could you text me a photo of it.
    I might be able to get you a used one.

  3. Hi Ron Thanks for your reply. I did get the part. Funny thing happened the part I received turned out to be an original ford part. Ford discontinued the item and must have sold off the remaining inventory.
  4. It's good you found the part.
    I don't come on here much.
    I'm on Facebook daily. Haha
  6. Take it out spray it with brake clean put it back together put a couple of bottle's of extra strength rubbing alcohol in the gas tank and if that doesn't work sell it to a private party that'll keep it from being turned into a paper weight.
