comment GOLF 5 GTD gas error led
The problem with above is that is it does cause an increase in NOX emissions. The extra power is from the engine taking in more air.

comment GOLF 5 GTD gas error led
The thing to remember is that the EGR valve is an emissions device. Most countries in the world will check the valve is working as part of (UK_MOT) its annual check. They will not issue a renewal to permit the driving of the vehicle legally on the road. What I will say is that when I am testing vehicles with running problems, I cut a metel oil can up to form a 'gasket' and place it between the EGR and the inlet of the system. This takes the EGR out of circuit and is useful to isolate a fault where the the EGR is a suspect. The metal gasket in place prevents the exhaust gas diluting the engine.

comment Manual ECU with Automatic Car
The 92 transmission does not have an ECU to operate. The 98 transmission has an input to allow variable valve operation for emissions and cruising.

Most main dealers in the UK are reluctant to accept a vehicle over 5 years old in part exchange for a new vehicle.

Its holiday time - Christmas and New Year will probably account for lack of responses.
