    Exclamation Stalling with clutch depressed

    Hi All,

    need a hand with this, i'm driving a L Reg Astra Bertone 2.0l Convertible. ('94, i think)

    when i'm driving along and slow down, i put the clutch down to change gear and the engine management light comes on and the car will stall.

    This doesn't happen everytime, but once it's in the cars head, thats it!

    haven't had a ECU test run yet, but had people say it may be the EGR valve, the symptoms seem right. but does this have one, had a look, but can't see actually see it? been told by different people it does, and it doesn't have one.

    any ideas if it has one and is this the fault, if not, any thoughts on that?

    cheers in advance all!

    More than likely the EGR valve. Whip it off and give it a clean with carb cleaner. Do the thottle body whilst your at it but if that doesn't remedy it then just buy a new egr valve.
