Question about 2004 Volkswagen Golf
Hi there we have just brought a golf 04 reg and within a day the emissions light came on, we took it back to the garage where they put it on the comp, 2 faults were found, globe plug needed replacing and sensor flap , both were rectified but after a mile of driving light is now back on? can anyone help?

Hi - did they clear the fault codes after replacing the items? I think the warnings will remain if they didn't do so.
Does the car run OK now?
Let me know. Cheers, D.

Hi, The EGR valve itself is on a set of flexible pipework - usually stainless steel - which runs between the inlet manifold and the exhaust manifold. The EGR actuator valve is pneumatically / vacuum operated by a solenoid valve, controlled by the ECU ( aka the brane). It's not usual for the EGR valve itself to fail, more likely the solenoid valve or its electrical connector getting dirty. If you google for VAG TDI N75 valve you should get all the info you could possibly ever need :-)
Hope this helps, D.

this is going to sound nuts but its true.if your brakelight switch is defective that light will flash.
see if you brake lights are working.if it is automatic trans you will notice the shifter will not always release when you depress brake pedal.
if its not brakelight switch get it autoscaned with a VAG.com

Your EGR Valve is clogged and has to be changed. I have tried removing, cleaning and replacing it, this only lasts from one hour to one week.
The fault code 'P3103 V157 - Intake Manifold Flap' comes up on the diagnostics, and if you look in your fuse box (next to the battery) you will see a blown 10amp fuse. This is a sure sign that your EGR (or Intake Manifold Flap) is stuck.
This unit costs about £235 - £250.
Good luck mate
