    Egr info

    How does a dodgy one affect the car? As mines having a few issues of late so wanted to rule out what the egr does, where it is and what I can do to see if it that causing a problem and not my head gasket.

    Stalling when putting the clutch in.

    Random lack or power.

    Bad starting.

    Cheapest way to see if it is at fault is to get a £3 blanking plate off eBay, fit it but leave the EGR connected to the wiring and tie it out of the way. If the issue goes, then the EGR is at fault.

    Stupid I know, but where is it? 20xev lump. Stalls all the time, lumpy idle, misfire on start up and smokey. Temp stays steady tho so trying to rule out head gasket before I put it in garage.

    i mite have this problem too.... would it really cause smoke on startup? coz i have that and thought it was worn valve guides?

    Same engine by the way.

    and dcy the EGR is in front of the coil pack, as you look at ur engine from the front its kinda to the right and down of the thick rubber elbow pipe coming out of your rocker cover bottom left corner if that makes sense?

    Also, just to confirm. When I remove it, and blank it I take it I don't have to buy another still? As I have no eml showing.

    No need to buy new one, though it may throw the EML on if the EGR fails.

    EGR shouldn't create smoke but I suspect it is possible if it is stuck open when it should be closed...
