Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

You could try a clean again... and also the port where it fits - because if its caked up in the port, you will get the same message...and EML on as you have...

So check that out and re clean the valve and see how it goes..

If the EML comes on again with the same result, the only answer will be a new EGR valve as your one is failing, causing reduced flow and hence the light / message.........

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...

Kind Rgds, MIKE
