    confused EGR or NO EGR that is the question.....

    Gents & Ladies,

    I have a 52 1.8 Vectra (Petrol) and after reading several threads on here I was wondering if my car had an EGR that needed cleaning due to the fact that my car has become hesitant and running poor.

    How can I tell if my car has an EGR?

    Thanks

    Paul.

    All cars have them m8, but as to where it is located on your engine, I don't know but someone will be along.

    Vehicle : Insignia 1.8 SRi

    Trim : VX Line Red

    Engine : 1.8VVT

    Year : 2011

    Hi Planner. I also have a 2002 1.8 Vectra, and had some problems with the EGR recently, although a good clean with a stiff toothbrush and carb cleaner sorted it out for me thankfully.

    If you stand at the front of the car looking into the engine bay, the EGR is located on the right hand side of the engine block. You wil need to remove the plastic ECOTEC cover to get at it properly.

    Looks like the photo I posted here :

    This view is looking from the passenger side of the vehicle, looking onto the end of the engine block.

    Hope this helps.

    It was deleted on later 1.8's, I think I'm right in saying.

    Mine seems to have a blanking plate there.

    I think it was deleted around the 04 plate IIRC.

    Hello people,

    Thanks for all the answers, greatly appreciated. I'll take the EGR off and give it a clean then. Also did the fault finding thingy over the weekend and came up with error code 0170. Is that related to the EGR or is it the MAF sensor?

    Again thanks for the advise and thanks in advance for any more advice/help.

    Correct. They don't. I don't think the 2.2 petrols have either.

    Tricky one that. the meaning of the P0170 code is :

    P0170 Fuel trim malfunction (Bank 1)

    My understanding is that Bank 1 is simply telling you that you have a normal 4-cylinder engine as opposed to a larger "V" style engine which has both Bank 1 and also Bank 2 for the opposing cylinders of the engine.

    Could be one of several things that throw up this particular error. I spoke to a mechaninc I know at the local dealership and he confirmed this to be the case.

    I changed the MAF and the exhaust manifold Lambda sensor before finally tracking it down to the EGR in my particular case.

    Doesn't cost much to buy some carb cleaner and have a go at the EGR, so might be worth trying that first.

    Yup, the 2.0T has no EGR.

    The Z22YH does, the Z22SE doesn't (unsurprisingly as that's what the 2.0T is derived from basically).

    The 2.8T doesn't have one either FWIW.
