    confused lack of power after cleaning EGR

    Hi guys hope someone can help but decided to clean my EGR valve on my 2.2DTI today as it was in need of a deep clean, was running fine before i started but after its lacking its pulling power, the engine does seem to rev alot smoother but it doesn't feel right now, took it for a thrash to see if would sort its self with no success only going into limp mode for the first time in 6 month, forgot to mention i'v also cleaned the boost sensor on the inlet manifold.

    cheers.

    Check all connections.

    remove an refit egr to make sure. It maybe sticking. May also be worth pulling batt for half hour (ensuring you've got stereo code)
