    I wouldn't think it would cause none starting issues... it will cause poor running if the flaps are stuck closed... search the forum, as a temporary measure don't bother trying to put the bar back on, aim the top of the flaps into the 10 o'clock position & glue them in place. unplug the egr, then use carb cleaner in the inlet while someone holds the revs down... this will clear a lot of crud. then go for a good motor way run.
