Re: Cleaning the EGR Valve
Great post with pictures, many thanks.
I followed your instructions for my 2007 Grande Punto 1.9 Multijet and it was full of crap. Also the solenoid had stuck solid causing the engine check light to come on. I checked the winding were ok by measuring the ohms across the connector pins. 8.3 ohms reading. If it was very low or nothing would indicate a short and the only fix is a new EGR unit.
I presume by this that the solenoid was just jammed. I found a guide on an Alfa forum to overhaul the solenoid. Drill hole in top and punch the jammed parts out overhaul and put back, took me 3 hours including removal and refitting of EGR. This has saved me the price of a new EGR valve.
All done, reset error egr p0401 error code using INTEY OBD2 scanner i just got and so far the engine light has stayed off.
