    It's going into limp mode. Remove clean or replace the EGR it's very easy on these do a search.

    Hi mate, I am having EXACTLY the same snag!!!! same code and same suggessted rectification. Ive had egr valve out and cleaned about 5 times but no joy. it looks ok,seems to be holding pressure and spring operating. the engine will rev past 3500 in neutral but in gear wont go past 3700, and that is slogging the guts out of it. I noticed the inlet manifold is extremely oily in doing my invest. Thinking it might be the speed sensor which has an input to the ecu. Its part of the transmission system so this is why I think its could be only when in gear.
