    1. Car is coming up with p0400 code, but runs perfectly fine, googled the issue and cleaned egr, code comes back, checked every rubber tube i can find based on more googling, nothing wrong. Only thing i have spotted is that the egr is missing the gasket off the bottom... Would this be an issue?

    2. Glow plug light has stopped lighting up on the dash when i go to start the car... Is this a fault?

    Cheers guys

    I would look at replacing the gasket to ensure an air tight system.

    it's as simple as the egr is goosed. either replace it or blank and get it mapped. if it's not opening and closing properly it will bring up that code

    Put a new gasket on and took it out for the weekly shop, no engine management light so far... If its fixed, its the cheapest repair iv ever done...

    Always start with the cheapest option and work your way up to the most expensive.

    Total nightmare the egr anyway so as Dan says it's best to get it mapped our and blanked
