Apparently the local Diesel experts could not ‘Talk’ to my car with their equipment, but as they do a lot of work for the local Mitsubishi dealer, the Mitsubishi dealer has run the diagnostics for them and found several fault codes all leading back to a faulty EGR valve, annoyingly it had a new one fitted under warranty when I first had it 3 years ago.
They have stripped it out to try cleaning it, but its not working electrically, I presume the solenoid is knackered.
On the old 2.8s the EGR valve can be blocked off or even replaced for about £35, but of course being the 3.2 I need to replace it, stump up about £250, and wait until Friday when they can get one.
Biggest annoyance is the chance of Snow tonight and not having the car to play with, particularly as I live on a very steep hill and often have to tow the wife’s Pug 206 up the hill in the morning when it snows.
