I disconnect the egr valve plug and the popping noise stopped and when it hit 2000rpm driving the coil light did come on and it went into limp move but it didnt cut out. Also it was throwing massive amounts of smoke out the back.

Is there any way of opening the fuel filter to check for shards of metal off the pump?

Its a sealed metal filter with a screw on bleeder valve type thing on the bottom. I emptied it out a bit of black gunk stuff came out but no metal shavings.

I have blanked it off. I put a blanking plate inbetween the egr valve and the pipe that goes to the exhaust manifold.

Sounds like erg is stuck open and choking engine, you could remove egr and inlet manifold clean all the black gunk with carb clean make sure egr is operating manually after clean then put it back together

How big of a job is it to remove the egr valve? It looks mounted to the inlet manifold.

Not to bad I would take the manifold off as well clean it all as the gunk can build up inside the inlet manifold reducing the airflow
