    Default EGR cleaned but.....

    Hi,

    Cleaned the EGR yesterday afternoon! The car ran sooo much better..smoother and of course the train like pull on the 3.0 cdti! Boy did i miss it. The engine management light came off after such a long time!

    Drove it for around 30-40 miles and then the engine management light came back on!! Back to the same problem, sluggish and pull! What could be the issue? My mechanic said it could be a sensor?? Anything else??

    Thanks in advance

    Right ok..

    What if i drive with the egr unplugged? Will this cause any issues with the overall performance/condition of car?

    It'll probably be the same because car will more than likely put it into limp mode because it won't be able to see egr position

    Which plug should i pull out? There are two. One electric and one to the egr. the one to the egr has been pulled out but very slight difference!

    can i pull both out?!
