    Question EGR Valve on 1.8 SRI

    Hi this might be a stupid question but does the Astra H 1.8 SRI (Z18XE) have an EGR Valve?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply, I was just having a quick look online and apparently the later versions of that engine (which mine is) don't have the EGR!

    No it doesn't have one. It has an idle control valve and airflow metre, whereas the smaller Z16XE has an EGR valve, no AFM and no ICV, just an inlet temperature sensor instead.

    Z18XE deleted the EGR as it met emissions without, X18XE1 used it.

    Apparently later Z16XEs had it deleted too.
