Hi I have a renualt scenic fidji 1.9 DCI.
which has a rough idle between 500-1000 revs
It only happens when car is stationery. The car still drives fine.
I have had it on a local garages diagnostic machine came up glow plugs. Which were replaced Waste of money.
Idle problem still has not gone.
Some one said something about give the EGR valve a clean if so is this easy to do and how.
Any other ideas of what it could be
Want to sell car in good working order.
Many thanks

Welcome to the forum.:)

I'm not sure if cleaning the EGR valve would help your idle problem,but it's worth a go.There details and pictures on how to do this on the forum,so if you search for 'EGR Valve' you should find the relevant info.

Well cleaned the egr valve very very dirty has made the car drive much better. Would it cure the idle problem straight away or over a few days if it was the egr.
It is better and is not happening all the time but still goes mad when you turn the air conditioning on when stationary
Any other ideas
Many thanks
