Sorry for your trouble. I have researched this on the net and have found that this is a common problem. The EGR valve is defective. One person has had it replaced 3 times. Here in the USA they have to warranty this for 5 years as it is an emission issue. I hope this helps you out. Remember we don't get paid until you press the acept botton. Thanks for using Just Answers. Jim
