Hi, your car has gone into limp home mode, the flashing light is a code, that needs to be read, could be a number of things, injectors, turbo related, sensors etc, so best thing to have codes read first, hope this helps,mark.

egr can be cleaned with gunk, or carb cleaner, its a very messy job. ;)

I can agree with Eggsy, I cleaned mine out just before the cold set in, cleaned the black intake manifold too and made loads of difference. Messy, but a reasonably quick and easy job to do.
