    Default Cleaning EGR

    Sorry been looking for posts or a how 2 but cant seem to find one (although i could be blind), i pulled mine off other day as i think its come down to a o2 senor and egr valve. I notice when it warm it tends to be sluggigh/juddery under throttle.

    Anyway, it seemed kinda sooty so just wiped around, but what do you physically do? Should you be able to push the valve in? I tried and it was solid but i didnt want to force it in.

    1.8 16v petrol vectra c SRI 52 plate.

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRI With a few added extras

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 120

    Year : 06

    Default

    The valve should move under some pressure as there is a dirty great spring creating resistance

    This is what I found when I removed my egr from my 120 diesel, probably a lot dirtier but the same principal and same clean:
    Before


    After


    Took the best part of a can of carb cleaner to blast out all the carbon, also did my boost sensor at the same time.
