You actually need to find out why the EML is on it could be anything. Need's to be read by diagnostic facility.

If the EGR solenoid has ceased and failed that may be the reason.

Replace (£70 look for Vauxhall 1.9 8v EGR's on eBay for a cheap new replacement)

Or the solenoid needs stripping down and cleaning.

De-coking the valve is but half the job.

This one's made by "Fuelparts"

tbh if it where my car I'd pay the extra £20-£30 for a genuine Linaccessori part (If I was keeping the car for a little while).
