Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S
We have a check engine light on for 2 months, shop said EGR valve was bad. I flushed and changed oil but no change.
Now today we have slow acceleration and low power.
The shop wanted 1300.00 for repair Is the EGR valve that hard to remove?
I don't think that's the EGR valve that the shop is talking about for that kind of dollar figure. More likely the injectors or injector pump....accordianman

Something I just had done was to replace my intake manifold and heat exchanger. It was so clogged it srunk from a baseball sized hole to about the circum. of a dime. It was sucking away my power. If you get it cleaned about every 30,000 km. then you will probably not have to clean it. I just had it changed at about 190,000 km.

Just stumbled into this, potentially having problems with a stuck EGR valve on a 2002 Beetle Tdi. The valve comes integrated in a larger piece which seems to run about $200. Add in diagnose and labor and the fresh gasket, but that still should not add up to $1200 imho. It better not be that for me!
Why I reacted here was because you wrote: " I flushed and changed oil but no change." What made you think that would have any effect at all? EGR has nothing to do with oil. It is the controlled feedback of some exhaust gas back into the intake to reduce NOx gas emmision. Cheers, Hein
