OK - first I am ashamed to say that I created this post in April 06 and I only took my car to the garage today to get the fault codes read (well the car was running . .)

It came up with a fault on the EGR valve - so the garage took it off - cleaned out the carbon, refitted and took my car for a run - no warning light!!!

Then I took it for a run and the warning light came on - this time for a shorted interval.

The mechanic told me I need to take it on a long fast drive to clear out the carbon - will this help??

Should I replace the EGR valve? Any idea how much it costs?
