Hello.

I wonder if anyone has experience of blanking off EGR valves. I have a 52 Zafira 1.6 (X16XEL) and soon after buying it i was getting intermittent juddering thatcombined with slowing down caused a stall. I finally found the solution to be a faulty EGR after the garage conned me into buying a lamda sensor. Now 9 months down the line the problem is appearinf again!. I have read elsewhere people getting sucess with a simple blanking plate but am worried it will cause my engine managment light to come on. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

i did this but blanking it off caused poor running,idle was very high andup and down and hunting etc,i cleaned it out and put back as per original and the idle was much better,i'm guessing mine was just coked up,also there was no eml on,blanked off or notbut was on when egr was disconnected,if egr plays up again i would consider changing egr rather than blanking off,my engine is x16 xe,hope this helps,chris
