    off to courtenay on monday to sort the car out.

    as some of you might now my car did pants at well lane, well ive rang courtenay after seeing shevs motor and a few others on the rollers i though id splash out some more money and get it setup right, i mentioned to them that ive got the emissions light on and im having problems with the engine and they said they could sort that for me first before they remap it but i never though about asking them if they have a tech 2 system to actually find out the problem as i dont want to be paying for parts and labour for the car to be checked out manually. Other thing is ive just been told it might be my EGR valve which i have never been told or read about before. Where does this go and does anyone else think it could be this, pics would be appreciated if anyone has em. The engine is a gsi turbo is anyone didnt know.

    thanks in advance

    You're going to the right place Mitch - There isn't much that Jon and the boys over there don't know about the ZLET, so I'm sure that they will sort the problem for you.

    They do of course, have Tech2 diagnostics, so don't worry. Hope it gets sorted out.

    Where have you been?!? 95% of Ecotec engine troubles are down to the EGR or AFM. Both of which are total pants, particularly the EGR.

    ive changed parts on the car from people experiences mainly off here, only part i havnt changed is the EGR as i only found out about that yesterday, does anyone know where it is as i might change it before i drive down becouse if it fixes it it will be a cheaper day out as i reckoned it will cost me 75 quid to get there at this rate. as i say if i knew where it was i could check it and even see if i have one lol as we found out we were 3 parts missing allready, lambda, biometric sensor and afm. Good old scrapers for leaving them parts of the engine when we bought it.

    Does the Z20LET have an EGR valve? I dont remember seeing one (if it is in the same place as a X20XEV)?

    Mitch - hope it get's sorted. It's worthwhile investing in the right area and getting the car checked over by Courtenay - it's a good run there and well worth the journey. I can assure you that your car won't leave their workshop until they are 100% happy with the running of it - I have never met a bunch of guys who are so dedicated to their jobs and giving the best customer service as those who are at Courtenay.
