Tell me about it....
Iv had over 2 grands worth of repair work done in the last month, not to mention the past 12.
I had the EGR valve replaced on my 2.2 DCI today as i often get the fault in fuel injection message. It was cleaned not so long ago but didn't work. So hopefully it's the last of the error message.
Just make sure that you oil is changed every 8K with fully synthetic oil , check that the intercooler is not bulging "if it is, the turbo should be replaced" as it is common for the seal to break down in the turbo forcing oil into the induction system, and does plasters the EGR valve with sticky gunge. There are plenty of topics on this subject.
Just check out the above before buying or replacing anything.
