I have fitted an EGR blanking plate to my car today as a cheap fix hoping it would cure my problems, it did not, the car runs fine with the EGR unplugged but is a NCT test fail because of the EML light, the test is next month.

I think i need to get a new EGR valve but would like to try cleaning out the old 1 first but i have no idea of how to get the little clip on and off that connects the EGR cooler to the EGR valve, any ideas.

I am getting a P0698 OBD code http://www.dtcsearch.com/P0698/

Well, but it runs fine as in no symptoms like before? Then its a stuck open egr valve.
And yes, unplugging it or removing is not a solution cuz the engine is looking for it (it thinks the wiring inside the egr is broken).
I agree - try cleaning - but cuz of your issue take a pic of the clip.

Would anybody know if this Peugeot EGR clamp will fit my car? as Pug Ford and Citroen all use the same engine.

I managed to get original clip off and back on, you just need to be brutal with it, i cleaned up the EGR valve, there were lots of carbon powdery deposits in there, it was a bout a quarter full of the stuff.

The same symptoms persist, car is hard to start and cuts out at any time, i get the code P0405, could my EGR valve actuator be damaged ?

http://www.obd-codes.com/p0405

The car runs just fine with the EGR unplugged.

Any help appreciated.

How many pins on valve? How many (edit: km's) on engine?
Edit: when cleaned up, did it close completely? Any vacuum connections to it?
And u didn't say...when u had the block off plate, all symptoms were gone?

There are 5 pins on my valve and 108000 miles thats 173000k on her.

I am thinking that as my valve was full of carbon then the actuator would have trouble moving and over time get damaged and so i need a new 1.

Sounds like you do need a new valve.

Being a 5-pin, it's not as easy to test for a regular DIY'er. It probably opens a varied amount as requested by the ECU and may include a circuit to show position. If it was a 2-pin, you could test it by applying 12V + and a ground.

I have also fitted a blanking plate though, now that my EGR is clean and possibly functioning normally could my banking plate cause these issues on my car?

Or do i need a new EGR and can i just fit it or do i need to have ford code it in as i have read somewhere ?

Its definitely possible. Try running without it. There may be a diff sensor for detecting egr flow or temp., and you're misleading it.
