Alfa GT EGR Vale Problem HELP!!!
so i have been getting the motor control system error for the past two days...constantly on and would not go off. Read a few things and generally needed an EGR clean anyway. Took car apart as i thought and cleaned the egr..
the solenoid was sticking and i could not manage to bang it out the bottom so i gave up and just gave it a good press in and out with cleaner and unsticked it abit. i could press it in with my finger and it sprung back. it needed a lot of force with my finger though so i am aware it may not be perfect. However i put it back on as it was getting dark. Now the car will not start. tried probably 15 times. I take the EGR off completely and the car will start and tick over but obviously is difficult to even move without very high revs. put the EGR back on and nope just will not catch.
Can anyone imagine what might be wrong? one question and this may be stupid but just how important are the gaskets? the oval gasket has fell into the engine bay and i can not retrieve it. i managed to put the square one back on fine but have been connecting it without the oval one. but i tried a blanking plate in its place and this did not work either... after a while also got the Glow plug error after i had tired to start it so many times....related or just due to over turning?
Anybody got any ideas as im pretty fed up :-(
