it could be a gummed up or sticking egr valve, or a split in the pipework to it.

Do you have a DPF fitted. could be it needs a new dose of EOLYS or a new filter (hopefully not!) Otherwise if you have completely cleared the EGR valve, have you run a treatment such as WHYNS through, as its not just the valve that could have deposits, but the area around it could be causing the problem...

DPF is the Diesel Particulate Filter, (hyped up version of the Catalytic Converter), for the most part, 1.8's dont tend to have it, but you do find the odd one does have it fitted.

If you ran an injector cleaner that will sort out the injectors, but you might be best buying and running something dedicated to cleaning the EGR, as they have better ability at tackling large buil ups of Carbon, Catch found one, I think its Whynns EGR cleaner if im not mistaken...

Is that a replacement DPF then? or did they just do a forced regen? glad you got it sorted, but sorry to hear you had the DPF issue...

No mate it wasn't the dpf it was just the replacement filter that was all gunged up not allowing a clear flow of diesel the arsoles at the garage had not changed it

ah ok, well glad none the less that you seem to have pinpointed it, hopefully replacing the filter will resolve the issue!
