Its been a long time but if you have a code 32 I don't think you use a TVS for EGR. The computer pulses the vacuum via the EGR solenoid. When the coolant get hot enough maybe 100 degrees the computer controls the system. If I remember correctly the computer will test the system behind the seen by opening the EGR valve at a time you the driver would most likely not notice it, I think at freeway speed and at the same time look at the O2 sensor voltage output looking for a change to verify in a round about way the valve is working. Hope this helps, the EGR solenoid is electric but it can't remember where it is but I think its on the passenger side of the intake manifold.
