Hello JACUSTOMER, does the vehicle smoke or lack power also?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Does not seem to, just passed California smog test and then later that day started this. it seems to do it more frequently at long idle or low speeds not at freeway speeds. 160k miles. New glow plugs and fuel injector pump in the last 6 months.

Okay. This is typically a problem with the EGR valve. If the valve is simply dirty then this can happen. I would remove it and clean it out to see if that will clear up the problem.

Is this difficult to clean or replace? I do ok around cars but do not want to make the problem worse.
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 7 years ago.
It does require the removal of a quite a few parts to be able to access it. I can give you some instructions on doing it.

If you could that would be great. This is my first time on this site or any site like this blog or what ever it is called so if I am asking to much or need to pay more let me know.
