I have an 02 plate Ford Mondeo Estate, recently the Engine Management light came on, when I took it to my local garage the diagnostic came back as the EGR valve, they reset the light and I took the car away, since then I have driven 2000 or so miles, it has been burning a little oil, but other than that fine, now the engine management light has come on again. Is the valve likely to be faulty if so how much is it likely to cost to replace or is there another way around it?
Not technical myself, but my dad manages to do a lot of things on my car up until now.
Any suggestions

the egr valve can be removed and cleaned,its a messy job but cheaper than a new one.

If it's messy, is it easy ish? Don't think my dad would appreciate removing half the engine! Sounds like a cheaper option though, has anyone done this? Is there anything / special tools we should be aware of?
Thanks

That's brilliant thanks for your help, going to try and last another week with the light on and have a go next weekend so fingers crossed will avoid big repair bill.
My dad has studied the Haynes manual and it mentions replacing the gasket when you take it off, but can't see this mentioned anywhere. Do we need to do this does anyone know?
Sorry for so many questions but I am just a novice!
