    Vehicle : vectra

    Trim : 1.9cdti sri 150

    Engine : diesel

    Year : 04

    Default Egr Valve

    i have recently had a code read and it was my egr, thing is what kind of problems will i have with it?.

    I was driving to work this morning and i lost power in the car and the car and spanner light came on and it goes off, power came back to the car after a little bit just wondered if this is what would happen with egr blocked up?.

    cheers.

    I notice you have a CDTi 150, you can get intermittent issues if your EGR is sticking which is causing spanner light to come on then go. It's probably full of crud and causing the valve to stick open/shut when it shouldn't be. They can be removed and cleaned, blanked or replaced - dependant on what you want to do.

    What mileage is on the car?

    It will be worth physically blanking the EGR too, as it sounds yours is sticking so may well be not sealing properly.

    If you mean blanking it, then you need to buy one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EGR-blanki...item1c27e9f9bb and you fit it between the bottom of the EGR valve and the exhaust gas feed pipe. Ben may have some, he could sort it for you, but if not the ebay route and 15 mins fitting it is the best way.

    Hi there, my vectra had your symptoms, loss of power and EML on so yesterday i followed a brilliand step by step guide to cleaning the egr, andi had to steep it in cleaner the release it with the hammer and punch, i then worked at it for another hour and fitted it again and the car is just great and even better the EML went of on its own, so i pressume it has reset itself after its been fixed. Just type in egr cleaned properly in this site,, amazing. OH nad i know nothing about cars so this was easy.
