    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150bhp diesel

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 65000

    Default P2279 but with a different light - ?????

    I have read alot of the threads regarding this but mine has never showed the spanner light, it always shows the orangey engine light and was wondering if this meant something different........... something really SIMPLE perhaps lol
    Same symptoms though
    Light will typicall come on when engine under load (ie up hill on a motorway etc etc.
    Temp loss in power but still easily driveable if kept above 2000/2500 rpm
    fault intermittant but light stays on for a day or so before going out without needing a code reader to reset.

    I have cleaned EGR valve but admittedly not drilled the hole and stipped the selonoid!
    Iam going to changed the vac pipes and will redo the EGR valve if needed but just wondered if the fact my engine light coming on instead of spanner light meant anything to anyone

    Thanks in advance

    I understand solid Emissions Light ('Engine Block') and Code P2279 can indicate EGR failure. Just had mine diagnosed as such.
