Re: Egr problems

Can't speak for the Astra, but AFAIK, the Punto 90 was never fitted with an EGR.

Pic would help!

Re: Egr problems

so have you managed to do a blink test then? Is this what code it gave you?? Just curious.

I would try taking yours off and cleaning it, see if it works, they can get clogged as very sooty. Unless its the electrical part that has failed.

Re: Egr problems

Well, that's a turn up. The Poles have another solution.

No idea if it works, why FIAT fitted such a silly thing, what points you in the direction of the EGR, etc.

Re: Egr problems

yep, i blanked off a egr on a corsa b 1.2 16v the other day. Blank came from a polish guy for that too as it happens. Not spoken to the owner yet to ask if it made noticeable difference but if forums are to be believed they go noticeably better. She has constant eml on that though cause it don't work, causes the tb to clog up eventually. car ain't worth anything so thought we'd try one of these blanks to stop tb clogging.

contemplating dpf removal and egr blank on my alfa atm. Just cause dpf's are a silly invention but the egr apparently clogs on them without the dpf.

Re: Egr problems

yeah it should. They usually have a spring holding it shut but you should be able to move it freely and easily with a screwdriver or similar and it then close shut on its own after.. Never had one off these engines - but you made me curious as to whether my GT has one now lol.
