    Default Possible to clean the erg on a z16se astra?

    As above, why I ask is because the erg looks nothing like my z19dth one?

    Problems she Is having with the car is juddering when accelerating under 2k. Fault codes listed are erg and crankshaft sensor my rpm signal? Would you say the juddering is more likely going to be the crankshaft sensor problem as I thought erg would just make it sluggish?

    The egr is a sealed canister type and tends not to soot up like the diesel ones. My old one had rusted and was leaking and sucking air and caused the eml to come on, the car to run rich and rough idle. It's the same one as on the 1.8 z18xe vec c and a few other engines;
    Astra G & Zafira 98-05 - Z14XE, Z16XE, Z16SE, Z16YNG, X16SZR & X18XE1
    Corsa C 01-06 - Z14XE, Z16SE & Z18XE
    Meriva 03-> - Z16SE, Z16XE & Z18XE
    Tigra B 04-> - Z18XE
    Vectra B 96-01 - Y16XE, Z16XE & X18XE1
    Vectra C 02-> - Z16XE, Z18XE & Z18XEL

    There's no harm in cleaning what you can and putting a bit of copper grease around the solenoid. To check if its leaking spray some carb cleaner on it while the engine is running, if it changes the idle its leaking/sucking.
