EGR Blocked off but is it supposed to be there?

I have a 96 Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2L V8 4x4 and im doing intake gaskets. When I took the intake off there is a blockoff plate for the egr. Was it there from the factory or did someone put it there? Will it hurt to not have it or? Any info would be great. Thanks

You have a motor from 95 or earlier in there.96 did not have egr.

The egr is blocked off so it must be 96 or newer then right?

Well ive concluded that its factory because the wiring harness has no electrical connection for the egr and there was no vacuum hose either so 96+ i believe has no egr!!

Its factory but newer castings did away with the EGR port entirely.

he must have an early 96 motor. they probably used a leftover 95 intake and just threw the block off plate on there. i saw a 96 dodge truck in the junkyad today with the egr block off plate. probably the same deal

they had lots of leftover 93-95 motors, so a fair chunk of 96's have the egr block off plate.
