My local vauxhall dealer said that it was a EGR problem ! so they said that they could sort it , great the car is still under warranty , well the car is but not that part ! ok so how much is the part flipping lots HOW MUCH ! so i took the car to a mechanic mate who said no problem i will just clean it out ,10 mins later and £20 lighter its done . I have the EGR Valve cleaned every time i have the car serviced . It goes like a rocket now Hope this helps others
