EGR valve success 1.9dci Laguna Sport tourer
Had same symptoms as others with total flat spot at 2000rpm,
didn't kick in at all. Took out
valve and it was caked up with black sooty carbon. Also the ports which link the
valve with the main intake manifold were completely choked. Cleaned them out and the
valve, copper greased the sleeve of the valve before I put it back in and no more hesitation or flat spots. Total cost of repair £5 for carb cleaner. Thanks for everyone's advice and tips, it was invaluable. My only tip to add is to remove the air inlet plastic hose and it's rubber block mounting from the manifold, this gets you far better access to the
valve, which was well seized in place. It is also only held in place by 3 bolts.
