Welcome. We have a newbies section for new members to introduce themselves :wave:

As for your code, which from a brief search seems to relate to the EGR. Has this ever been cleaned?
You can blank them off, and I have done in the past, but newer vehicles may not like you doing that and constantly show the CEL.

Hi no I've never had the EGR cleaned but I did have my car carbon cleaned buy a company hoping that would sort this problem out but it hasn't this problem has been probably getting worse now for the last few months as engine light comes on a lot more regularly but still goes off after a day I can't seem to find anything on here on how to clean the EGR I think some people have actually removed and cleaned it themselves.

If it's anything like the 407 and 508 it will be at the back of the engine. Is there a silver pipe that runs front to back?
Attached at the intake manifold at the front.

Hi no it's not the same it doesn't have any long silver pipe going across anything I don't know where I saw it but I saw someone clean their EGR themselves on a rcz and they were talking about it was at the front of the engine I haven't even got a clue what it looks like got to be someone out there who's had this problem I do get a small misfire around the 2000 RPM but that's the only code I'm getting

It must be part of the inlet manifold?
