156 swagon limp mode

8am car failed , engine light on , no power , on limp mode ,
removed egr valve , 5 minutes off , 1 hour cleaning it (soaked in petrol) cleaned off with tooth brush (wifes) and brake cleaner , re installed . turned the key ??? still the same .
added some fuel cleaner to tank , changed air filter , reset codes
turned the key . ran at idle speed for 1 minute , then revs picked up and now drives like a dream . saved a fortune from those peskie garage services. over the alfa moon.
