    sounds to me like the egr is fubard. when you cleaned it did you detach the solenoid part off the valve with 4 allen bolts and if you did. did the solenoid pin move freely as if it didnt then the solenoid has gone or is seized and thats a new valve you need £100 on ebay

    if its not seized and you can depress is in and it pops back out easy then it might be another problem like swirl flaps or air mass meter but i bet its the egr personally.

    update. well,i purchased a new egr this afternoon and now all is well again,thank the lord.i think when i punched out the solenoid for cleaning i may have mangled up the electrical connection or something because the punch i used was wider than 3mm!at least i know for next time.gona buy a spare egr ready for when i happens again.not the best set up the world on these cars.
