Just blanked my egr finally on a 1.8 tdci, pretty straight forward. However when I first turned the engine over, I got a big cloud of smoke, the big red engine warning arrow and the yellow check engine light, together with the digital readout of check eml Gave it a rev and switched off, restarted didnt get eml warning in digital display but the red arrow and yellow engine light are slower to go out. However the engine itself seems like it could stall, sounds like it's having a good old grumble then all is well.
is this normal? anyone had experiance similar?
