Espace - Electronic Incident Warning - power loss


Having read this thread with interest and having limited meccano skills can anyone post a photo of what the egr valve looks like for me to clean.

I bought my Espace two weeks ago on 40k mile and yesterday experienced power loss, the warning light, and duly 'limped' home. I can also smell oil in and around the car. I also stalled the car toward the end of the journey home. The warning light dissappeared and power was restored. Today no problems but appears to be running a bit rough (juddery) with oil smell present at end of journey on 30 sec idle.

Please confirm I have the dreaded symptoms and that you recommend clean valve, clean mainfold, oil change to 0W or 5W and Amsoil drops. I have booked into a Renault dealer for a full service and diagnostic investigation next week and want your informed opinions on this one.
