    Check engine light on solid, Fuel mileage down a bit is this the EGR Valve?

    I know there is know way of really telling what the problem is unless i hook it up to a VAG. But is there any thing i can do to check the EGR/clean it with out a VAG read? FRom reading post it seem like it's cool to drive if the CEL is solid is this true. I should take it in if it starts to flash right?

    At the very least, get it scanned so you know what the issue is.

    Your cheapest bet is to see if anyone is willing to bring their personal VAG-COM to the monday night cambridge meet and scan it for a small fee (or coffee) for you.

    I love how you call Guelph a rip off simply because you don't know enough people to get a hook up on a free scan. Go ask around shops in TO what they'd charge you if you didn't know them first. I can think of at least half a dozen people that have their own VAG-COM that are on this site frequently, but I can't expect them to step up and volunteer without getting to know them first.

    lol, everyone wants everyone for the vag. ive never had to use use mine on anyone other than my own car, just cause the CEL light was taken out by previous owner...so i scan it weekly to make sure theres no codes - only one that pops up everytime is that the cel light is shorted

    alskdjfalskdjfl! Maybe if I still lived in Guelph you could feel used I'm far too busy (and lazy) to drive to Guelph just for a free scan.
