I had to be rescued last night by Green Flag I lost total power and black smoke. I've tried it to day it will tick over sounds ok but when I rev there is not enough power to move the car just stalls, on the rescue note the man has written "suspect injector fault on turbo pipe" but it was in torrential rain so he didn't have much chance. I've looked and all seems ok and I've read a lot about the EGR valve but can't even find it on this model. Any help please.

Welcome to the forum.

You say 1.9 GTI do you mean CDTI, the EGR valve is at the back of the engine to the right.
