    confused Have I got a dodgy EGR valve?

    Hi folks

    Now, I've checked through the previous threads about the seemingly major problem with the EGR valves. Alas, I find myself probably suffering from a similar ailment.

    My car has developed a strange problem where the turbo doesn't spool up no matter how hard you press the accelerator and it crawls along like an arthritic sloth (this is from low revs). All of a sudden, it picks up and goes like normal.

    It seems to be fairly inconsistent and it didn't happen at all on my way home from work.

    So, do I need to get my EGR valve cleaned or is it something more expensive?

    As usual, all thought gratefully received.

    Those were the exact symptoms when mine went on the last car. Crawled along foot flat to the floor then suddenly hang on for dear life as the car went psycho.

    Fuel consumption went up too.

    What engine have you got ? if its a 2.0 or 2.2 DTi then you might need the boost sensor cleaning.
