    Lumpy idle on Coupe

    Hi guys. Hope someone can help. We have a 2.2 SE1 coupe which has recently developed a bit of a problem. After the engine has warmed up the idle becomes qiute lumpy. Sounds like it is chugging a bit and when the lights are on the dash lights fluctuate a bit. It doesnt stall but revs drop to 500.

    Any ideas what to look at.

    Many thanks

    EGR Valve maybe the first thing to look at. My 2.2SRi had the same symptoms as you and a new EGR fixed the problem.

    I have these symptoms and also had a bad EGR. I changed the EGR and the problem is still there.

    However in my case there could be other factors.

    Where is the EGR valve found Guy's and is it pretty easy to replace??
    What sort of cost for a new valve. I think i may have this problem on my 2.2 se1 coupe as well.

    I paid 200 Euros for a new one and the EGR valve is located on the right side of the engine and looks like a cilinder with two bolts at the bottom. It's the only thing near to the engine on the right side.
