    Default Lumpy tick over and no low end power - Help

    Help - idiots guide required!

    I had the fun recently of driving 140 miles in limp home mode after a holiday and the problem seems to have cured by a new EGR valve.

    The veccy is now playing up again 3 days after the new EGR with slightlyu lumpy tick over and no umph below 2000 - 2500 revs.

    I have had the annoying spanner light flash up on start up for a while and this has come back since the EGR valve - ppl on here advised me that it may be a split hose.

    I dont want to take it back to the stealers to sort it but I am fed up with the poor low end performance - mpg is all ok and generally the car is ok.

    If anyone have for tips or an idiots guide to hose checking I would appreciate it.

    Thanks....markluk

    Taking out and gentally cleaning the boost sensor could help?

    Check all your hoses for splits?

    Take back to the stealers and tell them the Replacement EGR valves didnt resolve the problem and you would like your old one fitted back on and a full refund.....?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I might take a look at the boost sensor again - I did clean this a few weks ago but I did have the 140 mile run in limp home mode recently which may have choked it up again.

    The new EGR did cure the problem - the car died on any slope - thought I was going to be stuck on my sloping drive when I took it to the garage.

    My gut feel in a split hose but I cant see anything - where are the pipes??

    Please help I dont like driving a gutless veccy!
