    After our latest trip over last weekend we noticed a slight rattle noise coming from the engine of our Renault Master based motorhome.

    We have been told that it is the EGR Valve which is not a major problem.

    Our local garage used a diognostic machine which showed no errors. They have stated that we can continue to drive as it is and not worry.

    I have asked them to get me a price to replace it anyway.

    What I would like to know is if anyone has experience of this as I find it hard to believe it is not causing any harm just to leave it.

    I would be greatful for any advice.

    See http://www.doyourdream.co.uk/2010/10/engine-problem-lack-of-power-stalling-etc/ for our EGR problem/fix on our Transit. May well not be of interest, but it may have some background for you.

    If your EGR is mechanical/vaccum and does not have an electrical connector, then its possible (probable?) that the ECU doesn't care on its position and could be disabled. If it has an electrical connector then the ECU may monitor the position.

    The Transit mk6 can be bodged (aka mine); and the mk7 can't easily.

    Removal and a good clean may help but the problem will return.

    Hope this is useful
