    Default egr help

    i just tried to clean my egr following http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/attach...7&d=1232829228 this i got as far as taping the solenoid insides out i could not get it to budge

    Does this mean my egr needs replacing or blanking?

    i sprayed carb cleaner in the 3m hole and cleaned the rest that i could see everything else that was ment to move seemed to move freely

    once i put the egr back together and back in the car i took it for a spin to check for faults

    i was pleasantly surprised car pulled faster turbo seemed to kick in instantly so what ever i have done has helped but im slightly worried i couldnt get that bit out to clean

    i am thinking the way forward is just to blank the egr

    Mine came out really easily, i can move the solenoid pin back and forth through the hole using the 3mm punch so i guess if yours doesnt move atall its probably siezed? Mine was still faulty afterwards so have just left it unplugged for the time being, same as blanking, which has made a huge improvement so blanking may be the way! Only annoying thing is i have the MIL light on my dash so would have to get the egr mapped out of the ecu to remove
