    Default Exhaust gases warning light

    Whilst finding that my boost pipe had split and I was doing a temp fix, I thought i'd see how hard/easy it was to take the EGR valve off and give it a clean.

    As I expected it was full of crud but the solenoid area was nice and clean and was moving freely. So my question is do I drill a 3mm hole on top of the valve so I can spray WD40 in it to keep it moving freely or just leave it??

    I run out of carb cleaner so need to take it back off again to finish cleaning, but will order the fiat gasket plates and put them on after the clean. Even with the temp fix on the boost pipe and a semi clean EGR valve the car drives much better, pulls away better than it ever did in the year that i've had it, my EML was on when driving to work but went out when i drove home but now the Exhaust gases warning light has come on. How do i clear this???
