Default Engine codes

New to your site, usually on the Charger site for my 66 Charger. Helping a co-worker with problems with his 1995 Dodge Truck, 5.2 auto regular cab, 80,000 km with stalling issues. It never threw a code and all the local shops didn't have a clue. So before posting here, this is what I have done so far according to the many threads concerning this problem. Pulled throttle body and cleaned a per instructions. Cleaned air control valve. Replaced O2 sensor (end of it was cracked). Slapped in a new set of plugs. Before stating with all these repairs, truck was sluggish and didn't pull like it should. Took it for a ride after all this and truck was running great. Much more responsive and ran smoother. But later while cruising down the highway it started to buck and backfire, engine check light comes on. Stopped backfiring and returned home to check the codes right away. So this is what I got according to the chart, codes 37 & 32. So now what. I will take a look at the egr valve and maybe give a thorough cleaning, but the other code 37 has me at a lost. Where do I start to look at for this one. Also on a personal note, my co-worked is fed up with this truck, he wants to get a Ford, so I will have a chance to by this one from him. Truck is in great shape. Thank you for your time in advance.
Denis

The code 32 for the EGR valve would certainly explain the running symptoms you describe if the valve is stuck of being held open by loose carbon. The 37 may be a part throttle unlock solenoid that is defective.

I forgot to mentioned that I also emptied a can of carbon cleanup through the upper and lower vacuum hose to clean the throttle body and the intake manifold or plenum as some call it, that might have caused a temporary code for the egr. Now has far as the other code, 37, what do you mean by a throttle unlock solenoid?
