    EGR Valve

    On top of the inlet manifold where it meets the hose there are two "valves" which one is the EGR valve? I thought it may be the black actuator on the left hand side but I gather from reading up on things that this may be a valve to kerb the excessive judder when switching off the engine.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.
