    Default New EGR - Software Update Required?

    I've just replaced the EGR valve on my '05 facelift CDTi 150 Vectra. I can feel the odd "lumpiness" now and then, usually coming off the throttle though I've only noticed it a few times. I'm not sure but it also seems a little slower though the fuel consumption seems much better.

    My question is, do I need a software update for the new, modified EGR valve (part number 55215031)?

    Also, does anyone know what the "modification" actually is yet?

    Thanks, that's Interesting - I'm guessing I'll have to go to VX cap in hand and ask them to do the update for me.

    They'll make me pay through the nose I bet

    Sounds like a DVD player or other electronic device.

    What happened to cars? What was wrong with normal carburettors and setting the points gap with a rusty set of feeler gauges?

    I don't suppose there's any lead date on the software availability?

    Same here, no software update on mine after fitting a new (Saab) EGR valve, much better smoothness and mpg like Scott.

    No worries mate, it was about £35 delivered - can't remember the eBay seller now, I have posted on another thread very recently his seller name (can't search here at work though ) Its been perfect, even my local garage bought a job lot too, the ones they have fitted have been perfect too.
