    EGR/TB cleaning

    Is there any tell tale signs that the EGR or TB need cleaned?

    As when im driving the car and I let off the gas the car kinda jumps a bit until I put my foot back down, I have only noticed it at around 20mph

    just whip it off and clean just to be on safe side - then u can eliminate this

    if ur unsure about the EGR it can be tested on my diagnostics when i sort the other things out - let me know if u need a hand and ill try fit ya in

    Cheers Marti,

    I have 1 years warrenty out on the car, and all warrenty work is done at a local garage to the dealers I bought the car from.

    Which lucky enough is cartec, So I think I will get them to give it the once over while I have the warrenty
