egr valve

Suspected my egr valve was causing rubbish throttle response at lo revs... especially when engine hot like coming off the motorway into town. Struggled to pull away from lights until turbo came on boost.

After inspecting egr valve the solanoid pin was quite stiff and i reakon when hot was sticking in the open position.
So blanked off valve and its like a different car awesome pick up ,no turbo lagg and no warning lights on dash.

10v 156 2.4 150bhp. 2002 facelift.
