    Question Dodgey egr valve, oil light, solid top pipe....I think

    Ok so....

    I noticed the other night the oil light on the dash was flickering on and off rapidly so had a look under the bonnet to see if i knew what it was.

    I checked the oil and it was bone dry ... Topped it up and the light dissapeared so thought nothing else of it.

    The light returned again today but was constantly on... Checked the oil and it was fine but noticed, what i think is the top pipe (the one when squeezed water squirts in the coolant bottle thing) and this was solid... I opened the coolant tank and it released a lot of pressure (more than normal) and then the pipe was fine but every time i start the car it comes back.

    I have also done the pedal test and it showed fault code 0400 which i think is egr valve or flow problem?

    Does this mean i need a new egr valve fitted and everything should be fine???

    There has also been a strange tapping noise coming from the belt area which ice been led to believe this could be a buggered belt tensioner ?

    Please help me
