'Check engine' message & engine light on

Hi

Replaced Stilo 1.6 Dynamic with Bravo Dynamic 150 Mjet 4 weeks ago. Everything was good until 'Check engine' message & engine light came on (Friday am). Took to dealer and they said it needs an EGR valve (Wednesday).

They told me they had reset the error, but the engine light's still on...?

Can't help thinking they're guessing. The car has done 36k miles.

All comments appreciated.

Cheers!

No symptoms other than above! I had switched on cruise control 5 mins before message popped up. No change at all in running.

I would go balistic if they said that to me! Been onto Fiat UK?

I would get advice on that your problem is actually with the dealer not Fiat, it is up to them to put it right in the first instance as they sold it to you.

Why are they saying it has been tampered with and why is it a 3k job???
