Seeking some technical advice. I have a Zafira 2008, 1.9 diesel. The engine icon warning lamp is permanently on on the speedo dial. A week a go I noticed a small decline in pull-away power and it has got progressively worse. If I floor the accelerator in neatral, the rev needle rises slowly and then suddenly kicks in. I have cleaned the sensor on the air intake, which was heavily clogged up, but it doesn't appear to have solved the problem.

My wife tells me that she let the fuel level run low to about a range of just 20 miles remaining. Is it likely to be some crap in the fuel line?

All advice gratefully received.

Many thanks

Wayne

it's the EGR valve. the EGR valve is probably blocked up with crap.i had this problem onceand had it changed and since then ive had no problems.

Dont need to unplug it or replace it, its only a valve, it just needs clearing, so take it out and clean it, there are videos on youtube that show how to do it, if you are not able to do so yourself then get a local garage to do it.

hi,don't forget to knock the plunger out of the solenoid end and emery it up and the tube it runs through as it is this part that siezes up, and copper grease it up before reinstalling.

Many thanks for all your advice. All sorted now. It was the EGR valve and the associated pipework was clogged up.

Cheers
