Guys need your expertise and advise, please.

SWABO's 1.8 TDci recently just lost performance and started smoking like an old locomotive.
Had it diagnosed and got the error code P2263.
From various internet searches, I have determined that this has something to do with the EGR solenoid valve.

I tried servicing the solenoid but the problem still prevails. Bypassing the valve seems to cause the turbo to boost continuously - good for pull aways, but lousy on cruising speeds (120km/h or +/- 60m/h)

Any suggestions on repairs or solutions (the South African dealerships are worthless in this regard)

Those codes are only guides to possible problems. The computer is smart, but not always 100% accurate. It's very possible something other than the EGR system is at fault. I've seen EGR solenoid failures, but usually not accompanied with a massive amount of smoking.

I'd suspect a problem with the turbo.....maybe seals. Good luck.
