    Default Another EGR thread, lol.

    ok, the EML came on on my 2005 55 plate vectra 1.9cdti (120) and the fault code indicated a faulty EGR valve. Although there was no performance issues, I bought a new EGR from a vauxhall dealer on ebay but when I fitted it the car became sluggish and stuttery. I cleaned and lubricated the old EGR and have been running the car on the old EGR for the past couple of weeks without the EML light coming on although the car has started to occasionally give a small stutter when accelle, accelora, accellara, going faster (lol).

    The vauxhall dealer has advised that i may need to have the software updated via tech 2 but when i phone my local dealer, they said that this shouldn't be required for a straight change of EGR. I've since checked the part numbers of the EGR. The new one has 7.22945.41 & 55215032 stamped on it whilst my old one has 7.22946.24 & 55194734. Can anyone confirm if these are the same or compatible?

    i just had a problem raise it,s unwanted head,aaargh loss of power and spanner on car warning light onThought oh great here we go,so off came the EGR valve and to be honest did not look half as bad as some of the poor bods on here.So gave it a clean anyway and took out the boost sensor which was rather mucky.Not too hopeful but to my surprise it seems to have cured it
    No spanner warning light and all the grunt back
    Must be a lucky one eh.must of been the sensor i think.
