Hi

Has anyone else ever had the EGR valve being blocked open by small shards of metal,possibly from the CAT? Has happened twice now in last six months and can't think where else the metal is coming from. Can't fully understand,if it is the CAT disintegrating ,why the debris should get back up to the EGR.

Golf 1.6 AZD engine

Any thoughts?

It's a mystery to me as to what's going on,. Only other thought was internal failure of EGR but its only just over 12 months old.

May try and rig up a filter mesh pre EGR to stop any possibility of exhaust gas metal debris getting into EGR.

Thanks

Did that when the last EGR failed completely. Worked fine but would give CELs due EGR flow errors. Not a problem for me but the wife gets a bit jumpy.

She was not best pleased yesterday when she had to get recovery out due the stuck EGR.
