    Had my car on the diagnostics machine yesterday as I had engine management light on.

    Came up with fault 16785 'insufficient egr exhuast flow'.

    I had a new EGR a few months ago so surely it cant be that again? Anyone have any experience of this fault or can give me a few pointers?

    The code was cleared and hasnt come back...yet!

    I've heard it may be related to MAF sensor?
