Thread: Somehow made things worse!

    Somehow made things worse!

    Hi, hoping someone can help me.

    I had EML come on a week or so a go, Exhaust Gas Flow error. It drove fine, so i cleared the error and it never came back.

    I decided to take the EGR off this weekend and give it a good clean out, in the hope it will prevent further issues. Its now carbon free and reinstalled.

    Yet, it now drives worse than before!

    It makes no sense to me, anything less than 2.2k revs I get barely any acceleration. How can cleaning the EGR make a situation worse?

    Any suggestions on what is wrong and how to fix? I've no fault codes.

    Any help is appreciated

    Managed to fix it myself that night. For anyone that is bothered, there was a bit of carbon stuck inside the valve keeping it slightly but permanently open. Cleaned it out again and all is good.
