  1. [Vivaro] EGR throttle circuit error code P0488

    Movano and Vivaro (including Renault/Nissan Deriva
    Hi, Has anyone had experience of this issue? If I reset the error, it'll disappear for a week or two then pop up again. It seems possibly after short journeys. is it likely the EGR? I'm reading it could be throttle position sensor, MAP sensor, relay, wiring etc!! I've seen EGR delete for the...

    Hi, I have a 2000 Vauxhall Corsa 1.7DTi. Its been looked after by me for the last 13 years and has always had no expense spared. Anyway the dreaded MOT was due this month.

    Hi, I'm new to the group. I have a 2004 Vauxhall Corsa Energy 1.0 and yesterday evening the emissions light came on. I plan on taking it for a diagnostics run at lunch, but I have manually obtained the fault code P0420. I'm hoping it's the sensor playing up and that the diagnostics will wipe it...
