    Default fault p0409-63 egr 3.0 v6

    so for the past few days the car has been chucking out thick black smoke from the exhaust. then yesterday on the way back from the beach the car went into limp mode and would idle at 1000 rpm but when i put my foot on the break it would drop to 800rpm (normal) so with the eml on, i pulled over and turned off the engine and left it a few mins when i restarted the engine the ems only was on but the car drove fine. i have read the code this morning and it says p0409-63 egr circuit range/performance (closed valve)
    so im going to take off the egr and have a look i know people have said its not worth cleaning so could someone tell me the best (cheapest) place to get one from as i can only find 1.9 valves.
    also is there anything else i should have a look at checking while im there.
    cheers

    I don't think they're a cheap part m8, so well worth taking it off and giving it a good clean and making sure the bits move that are supposed to.

    'Closed valve' could either be gunked up, or the unit is Donald Ducked. Euro car parts - look out for weekend discount codes that get posted up here - could be an option. That said, local motor factors can also be good - mine is surprisingly cheap for consumables

    this may sound daft but check the intercooler, i had 'circuit a egr fault' as diagnoised by the AA, blanked of the egr to inlet manifold and no limp mode, lots of smoke but i could drive, booked car in for a few jobs EGR top of list to be told no EGR codes but your intercooler is split, 300 notes inc fitting and the car is better then ever, an EGR will cost you around £400, if you defo need one try LMF

    i have checked the inter cooler and pipes as the first port of call when i started getting black smoke but everything sounded ok.
    i got the egr out today but it looked pretty clean but the manifold that i took of was caked in crap it was hard to kind of looked like charcoal.
    i have put it back together and no eml or warning lights still some smoke tho,
    i also noticed a really loud ticking noise comming from the engine but my wife says that was there before.
    i took some pics of the egr so will post them up in a bit.
