Its a fairly quick job to clean the Egr valve and manifold and there are lots of guides online on how to do it. I have the same problem with my car despite cleaning these and putting injector cleaner through. It sounds more like a potential injector issue, maybe a leaking injector. What kind of mpg are you getting?

Regards

No thats awful! Try cleaning it using this link then put some quality cleaner through like BG244 and go from there. Could be a million things prob best to pop it to a local garage and pay them 20 to do a enginge diagnostic,

I had this problem on my 56 plate 130bhp TDCI
I cleaned out the EGR vale and manifold which didn't have much effect, I took it to a local garage who did a diagnostic on it and found a low turbo flow and a 4" split in one of the hoses. this was repaired and now get 40MPG round town with a light foot.
garage charges 120 for dignostic and replacement of pipe as i'm told there are a few to look at.
Hope this helps

Rob
