Hi guys, just finished a 300 odd mile trip to Scotland and noticed towards the end a lack of power and a strange whooshing noise from the engine bay
When I got here I took a look under the bonnet (In the rain!) and my engine bay was covered in soot.
Found the cause of the problem, The exhaust gas feed to the EGR valve had popped off. But here's the question..
Is this pipe meant to be split at the end? The plate that holds against the EGR valve wasn't attached to the actual pipe, With a bit of pulling I can pull the pipe straight out again. There's no welds on it to have snapped, I expected the end of the pipe to be flared or something but that isn't the case either.
Surely this pipe isn't meant to be that free to move?
EDIT: on an unrelated note, where can I get my hands on a new badge for the steering wheel? I managed to dent mine smacking the horn at a BMW driver!
