Smoke/Venting from egr valve 2.4jtd

While working on my 2.4jtd it the other day i noticed that if you rev the engine and then lift off it seems to be venting sooty smoke or similar from some where near the egr valve.

Is this normal or it there a leak ?

Sounds like a leak to me. Probably gummed up with crud. Having said that, the gasses should either go out the exhaust or be recycled round the system, so it's probably the gasket around the EGR valve (if there is one).

Don't know much about diesels I'm afraid. I cleaned the EGR valve of a Vectra a few weeks ago, so that's what I'm basing this advice (or lack of) on
