    Default Cleaning EGR Valve?

    Hi everyone,
    I have a problem with my 2003 2.0 diesel and the EML lights up every now and again.
    I have had it tech II'd and have been told that the problem lies with the EGR valve.
    I have read somewhere that you can remove and clean the EGR valve
    Does anyone have any experience of this?

    Alternativly does anyone have a good EGR valve for sale to fit a 2003 2.0LS Diesel?

    Yep, Done it.

    Remove the ecotec black plastic panel.

    Look down the front of the engine, you'll see the EGR valve, it's held in with two torx bolts, it has two pies coming from it. Undo the bolts and withdraw the valve.

    Spray liberally with carb cleaner and allow to dry in the air. Do not replace it immediately, or it won't dry properly and it'll pop and bang like Del boys van!

    When it is dry, replace it and start the car as normal. Should work OK, but, if it's knackered, cleaning aone won't repair it!

    Good luck!!

    Hi, sorry for the resurrection..

    I've been suffering limp home mode and would like to first try cleaning this valve on my y22dtr. I've removed the manifold and located the EGR valve - the two torx bolts come out nice and easy but the valve itself is stuck and wont budge!

    Any ideas how I can lever this thing off?

    Have a look at fitting a blanking plate. I got mine off eBay for less than a £5. I have yet to fit it but the reviews are great.

    Most limp modes on this age of car are vacuum hose related. Mine did the same as yours and it was a 2" piece of rubber tube which had split. Replaced it with silicone tubing from Internet.

    Cool, thanks for he replies. I've got the hose now and will try that thanks!- http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...otos-included)

    I did manage to get the EGR valve off eventually, i needed a lot of wd40 to soak in and then I twisted it back and forth little by little until it eventually started to budge - took about 10 minutes. Also cleaned up the manifold and also the boost sensor.

    Cheers!
