    No Idea ??? :(

    got a astra mk 4 03 1.6 16v car

    recently had the problem of the car loosing power and stalling when coming to a stop, the car was recently serviced and doing fine.

    now the car starts and a min later just stalls and looses power and turn off?

    im sure its the egr valve but has anyone else got any ideas?

    How long ago did it start, did it happen to start soon after the service? I'm guessing either egr valve or afm

    well is started yesterday on the way home from work, i would come to start and the car would stall and loose power

    and it kept doing this on the way home, didnt help it was an hour journey

    so got home and decided to clean the egr valve, i have already had this blanked off aswell

    so went to start the car later and all it does now is turn on for a min and then stalls and turn off

    If the EGR is blanked then cleaning it won't make any difference.

    No AFM/idle control valve on this engine so it isn't those items.
