    Yeah its a nightmare mate hope it isnt the same problem asmine as its an expensive one but if your midel has a egr valve just take it off and blank it thats what i did on the recommendation of a mechanic friend and he talked me through it.. 10 mins work mate. Seemingly egr valves only really get used on motorway miles...,how true i dont know but ive got my car back after new clutch and hes blankef the egr valve and its sweet...

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    I take it were talking petrol 2.2?

    If so this is the 2.2 EGR. Its the barrol shaped thing, yours wont have that black think as mine's been blanked.



    THIS link shows you how to test the EGR.....

    You can blank the EGR is the EGR is still working as the ECU needs to think its still there so it still needs to be plugged into the loom.

    To totally take out the EGR it has to be blanked and Tech 2's out of the car or else you'll get a warning light......The other way is to blank it and fit a Cheater (£10) into the loom HTH
