The 1.4 is a vacuum type so you could blank it off with no problems. Check there is a small bore rubber pipe connected to it.

i drove it as if i;d stolen it for about 5 miles, sure enough curled out smoke for first couple then seemed alot better.
i decided today to have a go at bypassing egr
filters all removed revealed multi plug with lots of wires from top part, no vacuum pipe ???
all back together, abandoned.
will tackle valve clean out when more time to spare.
thanks for all the help n tips so far

Who even cleans those pesky things... Get a pipe to blank it. They're garbage and kill a few ponies.

you make it sound simple..
is it easy to blank it off to save future hassle ?
What about mot emissions ???

Sounds like the EGR valve is sticking, a fun job to dismantle and clean!

would EGR valve cause the hickuping feeling ?

white smoke or grey smoke? it could be overfuelling as its diesel.

i would not describe it as white, greyish...
also the fact its bad on fuel mpg
