    If you have EGR problems read this!, This as always been my problem with the EGR, read ALL clean ALL but pay attention to the shaft / shroud i have pointed out, this sticking will eventually burn out the solenoid causing total failure, clean the EGR and this shroud/shaft at regular intervals & you should have a long life EGR I'm doing yr6/64k on the original.

    Egr valve faults are well documented on here, if you are having problems, you can get a blanking gasket from fiat to close egr valve. From what i have read, they tend not to like stop/start and short journeys
