    Default EGR Valve back order?

    Well the following the spanner light and zero power at low revs the car has been sitting in the dealers since Sunday.

    Not surprisingly they have diagnosed the fault as the EGR valve.

    However they have just rung to say that they have non in group stock and that they are on back order which could be up to ten days.

    Does this sound right? I've asked about a loan car as I have to have one to get to work. They are coming back to me on that but she didn't sound too hopeful

    that doesnt sound right mate id go get 1 from euro car parts or vx parts counter and fit it,it be quicker but you still need to have it tech2 to clear the spanner light.ten days is way to long.they should give you a loan car for free as its there fault not having parts in stock.

    Steve, get them to do a national group check as well...

    I had this BS too many times now to know that there are parts out there.. but they just have to hunt for them..

    Will do Mark.

    I'm gutted mine went TBH.

    90% motorway miles, never give it some wellie until the engine was warmed up and always always let the turbo cool down before switching off.

    Might as well have stuck a box on and driven it like I stole it.

    Got me Vec. back this evening. New EGR valve and gasket. Normal service appears to have been resumed.

    Just as well really. I was really taken with the Meriva loan car.

    Yeah mate. The Vec. seems really low in comparison. Genuinly liked the Meriva. Visibilty was excellent and as you say, just stepped in and out.

    Glad you got it sorted Stevel, ours has just started the with the same symptons, low power below 2500 revs. Its going in today for a service as well, hopefully they have some in stock. I've check the swirl actuator rod which solidly attached to the inlet manifold and moves when revved. Looks like its the EGR valve same as yours. Unfortunatley my local dealer is fully booked until next tuesday so its going 40 miles to the garage i bought from in Castleford - at least I trust the JCT600 dealer in Castleford!
