    Default More EGR Fun and Games! Advice needed please

    Well Ive posted a few times about my veccy this week. Firstly Exhaust Gases light on. Cleaned EGR and Boost sensor and away it went for a day. Then the light came back and the car had no power under 2000rpm. Posted on here asking for a Tech2 in South Wales (Thanks 3.2Wales).

    So today I thought Id clean the EGR again and glad I did, the valve (not the solenoid side) was stuck fast. Cleaned it up with some Carb CLeaner and loosened it a treat. Anyway this is where the fun comes in - I dropped a bleedin bolt and it hit plastic so Im guessing its in the catch tray.

    Anyone know what size bolts are needed for the 1.9CDTI 150 EGR? Its one of the ones that isnt holding the engine cover mount but is going into the engine block. One of the 4, not the 2 larger ones.

    Secondly, is it ok to drive with just the 3 bolts in? It seems to be pretty damn secure. Other 3 bolts on as tight as possible.

    But on the plus side the power is back - although light still on.

    Ive just taken her for a burn down the motorway (lot of cops out today) and she was better than ever. Good power under 2000 revs etc. Exhaust Gases light still on but performance fine and Economy seemed the same so I wont worry too much about it.

    Loving the power though!

    ...be worth nipping into a VX garage to get one of the bolts you require - just to be on the safe side They can't be much.
