    Thumbs up New EGR valve fitted !!

    just got the car back from vauxhall after having a new egr valve fitted.

    what a differnece!! the car pulls from 1500rpm and is nice and smooth now.

    even though i thought i had really cleaned the old one its obvious that the new one has made the car so much smoother.

    just go tthe vaccum pipe to replace now and prehaps i might attempt to clean the throttle body too.

    just one thing though, my mate 54 plate prefacelift vectra has an engine cover with a piece of soundproofing on the back of it, should my 06 plate have the same piece or not?

    cheers

    If it's a 1.9d you've got then there have been a couple of design improvement changes to the original EGR valve since 2004 model year. I replaced mine and found the driveability improved vs cleaning the old valve.

    changing the egr valve is simplest job i've ever done on any car. literally a 5 minute job a child of 5yr could do.
    oem valves for sale on ebay around £90 last time i looked.
    cleaning as the how2 didn't help my egr last year either - got a new and all was perfect again.
