    wrong forum but welcome to the club

    u need to clean out the throttle body and EGR valve in particular

    check out the how-to section here: http://www.astraownersclub.com/docum...hnical/EGR.pdf

    how-to is based on the 1.8 but the principle is the same although the EGR location differs ever so slightly

    can of carb cleaner (£4 from a local motor factor) and a clean rag will have the throttle body and EGR looking spotless and shiny afterwards

    saw ur other thread about the fault code - if u have the stereo code at hand if u still have original stereo - id disconnect the battery for half hour whilst u clean out the above components

    it will reset the ECU and remove any codes that may be stored

    if the code reappears then the sensor may need changing
