Hi Paul, and welcome to the club.

You haven't said which diesel engine is on your car, or the year, which would help.  I did think  that the x type diesels only had one EGR valve which  can be blanked off without causing any problem. The part for blanking it off costs about £4.

Running rough can often be helped to get better by a can of Diesel Magic or a  similar  additive.

Hi yeah sorry it's the 2.0d on a 07 plate originally the auto electrician said the 2nd ecv could be blanked an remapped to cure the problem an now he says you can't do it on my one even the owner of the garage was confused by what he has said an knows nothing about a 2nd egr

Hi Paul, 

Thee are quite a few members who have blanked off the EGR valve on the X Type diesels.  It does not need remapping, either.

I am concluding that the garage you are using know less than me about diesel engines, and I was an accountant!

I think that there have been several good You Tube videos on blanking the egr valve.

I would also look for a new garage.  Perhaps there are some members local to you who can advise.
