    Default Y30DT EGR Valve

    Today I have replaced my EGR Valve after removing it a couple of weeks ago for cleaning, then having to wait 2 weeks for a pair of new inlet manifold gaskets from the dealer. Having reassembled everything I started it up and at first it seemed exactly the same as before I cleaned the EGR valve, so went for a test drive, got about 200 yards and got the yellow spanner and limp home mode, so I limped it back to the drive, left it switched off for 10 mins then tried it again, now I just have the emissions light on the dash and it doesn’t want to seem to rev.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks.

    You either damaged the EGR or not connected the plug on top of it, or there is a boost leak(can't remember if the EGR is operated by vacuum like on the 2.2).

    Mine did the exact same thing as yours. Spanner light first then emission light after restarted with the fault stil present.
