    Default egr valve

    hi all, can you help plz, i need some advice i have a vectra cdti 150 spanner lights has come on, it judders when you are going slow, then after the spanner light will come on when you boot it. If you just take it easy an pull away slow the spanner light doesnt come on, its also smokeing a bit aswell, ive taken it to the vx dealer he said it was the egr valve an said it has an air leak i take it on the pipes. I have cleaned the valve, but didnt drill it, would this valve and an air leak cause this problem? any chance in guideing me as to what pipes i should be looking at. Cheers for your help, this is a great site full of good information. p.s: its a 54 plate an has done 50,000 miles

    hi mate the intercooler had a hole in it, aswell as the airconditioning radiator, or what ever its called. So had a new intercooler fitted, new airconditioning radiator fitted, re-gased, £690 all in.
