Re: old technology

Yep the ignition module contols the relay. The garage reckoned its Renaults first try at an EGR system and not a very good attempt. If I reconnect the relay sometimes it works fine and other times it chatters and the engine then splutters and misses (I guess the EGR valve is fluffing so the gases are on/off through the inlet manifold). I've checked all the vacuum hoses and one-way valves are all are in good condition and valves the correct way around.
This piccy is the EGR valve.
