    how old is the second hand EGR? Posibly goosed too? Did you atleast use a new gasket and fitted the correct way round?

    sorry but nobody in their right mind fits a used EGR valve!

    ur just throwing ur money down the drain

    how much did u pay for it?

    what engine we talking about anyway?

    most engines in the vxl range use the Delphi ones which come in at £65 delivered for a brand spanker which will eradicate the EGR problems (if of course they are confirmed as being the cause)

    have u read the fault codes?

    Mabey not got that much to fork out geordiebandit! we can get them for £5.00 second hand and a good investment if you think its the egr and buy a cheapy just to check!

    work was carried out at local family owned garage ,who we have used for years,the egr that we bought was in very good condition ,or the MECHANICS wouldnt have bought it ,as they have a good rep to uphold

    my question still stands though - have u read the fault codes relating to the recent EML to confirm if its the EGR again?

    Im just saying what the majority of ppl are thinking regarding fitting used parts - whether your MECHANIC or someone else says its in good condition - without testing it fully you can never be fully sure - but if you're satisfied the EGR is in good condition then theres nothing I or anyone else can say until you have the latest EML diagnosed

    fittiing one isnt an issue - paying for one under the impression that its a good working one is when problems can and usually do arise - which most ppl would automatically assume has happened in this case

    but who am i to judge!!! im only giving an opinion
