So I had a car with no problems. 18 months ago fitted a EGR blank. Broke one of the two bolts. Thought it would be OK, seemed to be right.
A few months ago car started to be a bit juddery/wobbly under very light throttle. Got progressive worse (but still drivable)...
Finally had a look at the EGR blank at the weekend and its been leaking/sucking air clearly for a long time. Took blank out, fitted pipes together with 2 new bolts, sealed.
Car wobble has now gone, but I did notice some hesitancy on a long trip at the weekend. No EML but DTCs codes stored saying the EGR is stuck.
This morning, quite cold, car started fine but ran like a dog - no power, like it needed some choke!
I assume the EGR is knackered (maybe due to not being used properly!) so I'm going to block it and seal it properly this time.
Just posting to:
1) Highlight my stupidity
2) Help others
3) Wondering if these issues do sound EGR related!
