    Default question before removing 2.2 direct egr

    could anybody please tell me how much coolant I need to drain before unbolting the egr on my 2.2 direct.
    As my car doesn't throw up any fault codes to explain why the spanner light is on and in limp home mode, thought I would take the egr valve out tomorrow as my intake manifold was full of sludge. so cleaned throttle body, took out as much sludge as I could from intake manifold so left with checking egr. before putting into the stealers
