    Angry dam limp home?

    Were do we start.....
    Got my self a 03 dti with 99000 on the clock not in bad condition....
    Well had it 4 weeks now and for 3weeks the spanner light is on and limp home on....
    I found this wonderful site and started reading, EGR, vacumue hoses, turbo hoses ECT.
    I have do the lot been on a tech2 and the code was EGR value so we tested and cleaned the whole system guess what, its working fine the garage told me this a common fault but the code is always wrong and the EGR very really fail.
    So we changed all the vac pipes, both solinored values the front LH and RH turbo pipes and had the codes cleared.....
    What I need is HELP!!!!!!!!
    Nothing is working. the only thing I have found different is the light stays off longer and I can drive normal and get turbo and boost but when a settle down and the boost lowers the spanner comes on then if I blip the gas it goes off. Only works twice, then it’s on until I reboot.
    Please help me before I let the crusher had it.......

    yes re-read codes and same on EGR fault but this has been tested and cleaned and its working fine on another car, but the other car one throws the fault on mine.

    also i dont think this has anything to do with but ive had a new cluch and flywheel fitted (this is why i got it for nothing)?

    To be honest it still sounds like the EGR...especially as you say it's mainly on easy driving, as that's when the EGR will be activating...

    update:
    i have had the EGR tested again and working fine, just been done the motorway at 90mph and it works pulled of the motorway and the dam light is back on.
    been to see an old m8 who has garage but will not even look a Vauxhall but he was ok and told me that the software needs updating, so off to the stealers and guess what they are saying there is no update but they will put a tech2 on it, and after a disscusion there is a software update but i have to pay for the tech2 time £89.80, so the car is going in on friday to have a full software update and my handbrake which is under warrinty, which i didnt know.

    update.
    car is fixed, for now
    i had the update done and it worked for about an hour no spanner light then it came back before i left the garage the tech had another look and the egr fault again but since i had changed it the trch guy lookedover the pipes all ok, spoke to a guyin suit and ask me to take a seat, cashcard ready!!!!!!
    but no the egr was fault and since i got it from a motor factors that deals with the dealer they changed it and get this for free and didbt even charge me for the tech 2 time result.
    so the car is running fine now since i got it back,
    only two more problems to fix now.
