I have had in the past 6 months the phantom "engine systems fault" come up on the dash a few times. Quickly pullover and restart the car and everything is rosy.
Today however the light wouldn't go off and I was forced to call the AA.
Two codes came up:
P0489: EGR system control.
P0670: Heater plug monitor function interrupted.
AA chap sprayed some sort of aerosol in through the pipe toward the EGR. Still nothing productive happened and I have had to use the M1 in limp mode. However 5 miles from home the fault disappeared and normal play resumed. Two miles later it came back and I've limped home again.
So some questions.
If I need to clean the EGR valve, how easy is it to do? I haven't got a pot to pee in at the moment so would like to do what I can.
What is a blanking plate? I got a load of results about them. What do they do?
Any ideas on the glow plug issues?
