First, I would have the OBD-II scanner bring the codes out of the computer so that you know what you're dealing with, as far as what emission control is not working correctly.

I would have this done before your next Emission test if you have that in your area.

Take the vehicle to the nearest Autozone or Advance Auto Parts and they will scan for free.

Good luck on this repair.

Before you even remove the EGR check all vacuum pipes to it.
More often than not you will find a TINY crack in one or more of these pipes.A vacuum gauge would be useful for this. Also check the solenoid on the vacuum line to the EGR. They often go faulty.
Best of luck

What does a yellow enginge warning light indicate?


It indicates that the vehicle's computer has recorded a code in the memory. It will be a malfunction code of some sort. A code reader tool is connected to the diagnostic connector under the dash to retrieve the code, which gives information as to which engine management system has experienced a malfunction.

My Polo had a similar problem and the brake light switch at the brake pedal was replaced. Then the computer was reset and the EPC light issue was resolved. It has something to do with the engine management, when sensing the light switsh being activated, retarding the power of the engine.
