    Default advise on cleaning egr valve please

    cars been playing me up recently with severe turbo lag. bout 2 weeks ago i bought an egr cleaning spray and sprayed it through. car ran better than ever be4 aND i thought happy days but low and behold the lag is back again. looks like im going to have to take the egr valve out and clean it properly. i have checked the how 2,s and it looks straight forward enough. my question is what is the best thing 4 cleaning this valve. i have wd40, easy start and turps in my shed. would any of these do or should i use something else. any suggestions, fairy liquid maybe, i am a skinflint.lol.

    plus!

    check your vac/turbo hoses, maybe de-coke/redex, fiat blanking gasket for egr (about £15)

    and a bottle of cataclean just for good measure, but add it with half the recommended fuel, ie 7 ish litres rather than the 15 litres that it says on the instructions.
