I'm getting an intermitent engine light when on longer journeys it stays on for a min or two then goes out again, the code is 1405 which is listed as Exhaust Gas Re-circulation (EGR) valve.

What could be wrong with it?

i also have the same problem with my 1.6i SXI, although my enigne management light stays on, vauxhall have re-programmed the ECU (because they thought it was that) but 4 hours after I got it back, it's doing exactly the same, but they said it is the EGR valve now, so it's going back in the morning, I'd be very interested on where it's located and how easy it is to remove and clean because I wont be taking it back to vauxhall again.

Mine is juddering in 5th intermittently and sometimes when I pull of in first from a cold or warm start.
