    Hello chaps,

    Today my Emission Control System light came on so I done a self scan with a cheap ebay reader and it came up with the following codes :
    17439
    16395
    17808

    One of them points to an EGR valve???? Is it expensive to replace ???

    It might also be a bit of info that the car doesn't start on first turn of the key, it sort of make a single judder amd then all the lights go off and nothing happens. Any help would be really appreciated because I am supposed to be taking the car for a 2500 mile trip...

    So on the ross tech site it says :

    17439/P1031/004145 - Intake Manifold Tuning Valve (N136): Setpoint Not Reached

    Possible Causes
    Intake Manifold Flap blocked/tight
    Intake Manifold Tuning Valve (N136) faulty
    Intake Manifold Tuning Valve Position Sensor (G336) faulty
    Possible Solutions
    Check Intake Manifold Tuning Valve (N136)
    Check Intake Manifold Tuning Valve Position Sensor (G336)
    Check Intake Manifold Flap

    Where on earth do I find that???

    For the next one :

    16395/P0011/000017 - Bank 1: Camshaft A (Intake): Retard Setpoint not Reached (Over-Advanced)

    Possible Symptoms
    Power Loss
    Possible Causes
    Camshaft Adjustment Valve 1 (N205) faulty
    Fuel Pump Relay (J17) faulty
    Mechanical Timing not correct, including Chain and/or Belt timing.
    Possible Solutions
    Check Camshaft Adjustment Valve 1 (N205)
    Check Fuel Pump Relay (J17)
    Check Mechanical Timing
    Special Notes
    When found in Engine: 4.0l W8
    Check TPL 2010059(RoW)
    Check/Replace Oil Sieve in Timing Case (Camshaft Adjuster)

    What's this then???

    Can't find anything on 17808...

    Sorry for the noob questions but I'm not that mechanically minded :/

    What car is this on?

    The intake manifold flap is a *****!!! to do!! The part is around £150 I think and would be a 4-5 hour job to replace. In the S3, it is located directly below the intake manifold/fuel pump and behind the diverter valve.

    Don't know anything about the second one, first I have ever heard of it.

    Third one I found this:

    So I followed the link posted above and checked the EGR valve, opened it up and all the cogs are fine, closed it back up and tried to start the engine, it made the single judder and wouldn't turn on, all lights went dead and the clocks reset themselves like if the battery got disconnected, the ECS light is gone but now the ESP light is on...help
