Well, both solenoids on my '92 Loyale are toast. Instead of spending $180 for new ones, or trying to replace them, I just bypassed them. I unplugged them and slippped a 2-watt, 68 ohm resistor into each socket. ECU sees no problem anymore, and gives no error codes.

I then went and plugged off the EGR system. I'll remove the purge control hardware later, if I get bored and need something to do.

Anyways, that's my solution to this problem.
