Many thanks for the replies.

 

Disabling the EGR valve sounds like heaven after the money its cost me....

 

Where would I get one?

Hi

 

Thanks for the replies

 

its rare for a valve unit to be replaced as a good clean is usually all they need, check the intercooler pipe below for any splits as this can effect the egr valve and produce black smoke, what code are you getting is it P0401 lack of air flow ?

 

I'm not sure what the error code was but will ask the guy who did it. When He took the valve off he said it was stuck slightly open and was covered in a thick black shooty/tar but he said this was caused by it not working properly.

 

How does the braking plate work and does it effect performance?

 

 I'm really a complete novice with engines.
