    the EGR won't control the running temp... thats the job of the thermostat...If it's running cold then replace the Thermostat first before condeming the EGR valve..

    80 to 90 is the correct range... 75 is too cold... so it's not the thermostat...

    any error codes?... what colour is the smoke?

    took it in to vx and the only code it through up was for glow plugs(which look like a right pain in the a**e to get to)when you put your foot down it kicks out loads of smoke which is white or light grey i think,i thought i would have had the spanner light on with it running so badly

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Black smoke usually indicated over fueling, this might be a MAFS problem. Do you have a remap or tuning box? My car runs 84-85 Deg when cruising as have all the 1.9CDTIs I have driven.
