    Default EGR warning light

    Hi Guys , 1.9cdti 150 warning light came on (again) , went to get it checked out at the local stealer , £60 later fault diagnosed as requiring a replacement EGR (this will be the second in two years). Having read a number of threads and taking a brave pill i deceided to change it myself with genuine part and new gaskets using the logic that i can clean the other one and rotate as nessessary.

    However - when i started the enging the light was gone and feeling pretty chuffed with myself i went for a drive , a mile down the road i 'felt something 'go' through the accelerator pedal the light came on and the power dipped momentarily , then we were back to full power but the light stayed on .

    Im not loosing power , pulls like a train but even after dis-connecting the battery ? the light is still on .

    In between my two EGR's i have also had a hose ? replaced for the same fault light but not sure what its called or where it is on the engine .

    any thoughts on what might be keeping the warning light on ?

    feel like another visit to the dealers is on the cards and im already feeling sore from the fiist one

    Cheers

    Why don't you buy a code reader as it save's you going back to the dealer and paying them and you can turn the light out I got two one portable one that I keep in the car and my laptop with vaux-com tech 2.

    Maybe. But the light can come on for a number of reasons. The code reader costs about £20, better than £60+ per trip to the dealers. Really need the codes read to help find the problem though
