    Default 2.2DTI Problem

    I thought things were going too well , spanner light came on and car went into limp mode so i ran it to a mates to get the codes read and he reckons that the egr valve has had it.

    Does anyone have a rough idea on the price of a egr valve including fitting

    Have you tried cleaning the egr valve? That is a common fault on the DTi's

    No - i never knew i could, is it hard to do

    I just assumed that when i was told it was broke that i had to fit a new 1. The car runs fine when cold it just seemed to get the fault when the temperature gauge started rising, is that normal ?

    Hi Daz
    no it's not bad just a bit fiddly.once you have removed the engine upper cover and the wiring connector'and two small coolant hoses there are only two bolt's to remove.you will need brake cleaner or carb cleaner and a small wire brush
