Hi there - how has your car been running since EGR valve replaced - mine was done at the weekend and the engine seems to be noisier and the car more sluggish than normal - I'm not blaming the new valve I'm more wondering if there is an underlying problem with the inlet manifold which is causing this - any thoughts?[/QUOTE]

Hi there - It's been fine since it was replaced. I got the dreaded Motor Control System Failure message on Christmas Eve and it was diagnosed to a faulty EGR valve. Up until it was reaplced I suffered bad fuel economy and sluggish responses. It's OK now though since being replaced. Guess your problem must be something else?
