    E.G.R. Valve

    Hi All.i recently asked about my astra which was cutting out when stopped at lights e.t.c.and would not tick over but would run great otherwise.well i have cleaned the throttle valve and body as recommended.and removed the E.G.R. valve to check it and although this has been fitted with a blank gasket by the dealers the "valve" was stuck open!.when i pushed it closed and refitted it the car would tick over o.k.took the car for a run and it started to cut out when stopped.removed the e.g.r.again and found the "Valve" open again!.had it to the dealers today to up date the E.C.U.and they could not find anything wrong!.does any one know if the "Valve should be open or closed on tickover.Thanks.

    Sounds a bit obvious this but bear with me.

    When the dealer fitted the blanking plate - he didn't just simply bolt the egr on top did he?

    EGR's do not work on idle - if you were cutting out at idle and the EGR was sticking out then logic says its supposed to be in at idol.
    It is only when the last tree is felled, the last animal killed and the last fish hauled from the sea that we will realise we can't eat money.
