    Where the **** is the EGR valve on my 1.4 105 petrol ZR?

    Hi guys.

    On my 54 plate 1.4 petrol ZR I have a P0300 fault code on my OBDII readout, random misfire. The car starts on the key first time, but as soon as I pull up to the junction 200 yards away it cuts out. It also has dropped in performance so much that it wouldn't now pull the skin off a rice pudding. I have swapped coil packs around after changing spark plugs and changed the lambda probe. I want to remove and clean the EGR valve but I'll be buggered if I can find it!

    Any help, pictorial or otherwise, would be most appreciated.

    Ta much.

    Phil.

    Thanks John. So that explains why I can't find it. Any suggestions what else I could try? Fuel filter was changed recently as well.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks John. Yes. Once it's running it's ok. Poor acceleration, but once it's up to speed it goes nicely. I just figured it would be the EGR, not knowing there wasn't one on it. Rather stumped now though. Is there a way to check fuel pressure without specialist tools or readers?

    I appreciate your help.

    Phil.

    Unfortunately not you will need a pressure gauge for that

    In fairness it probably be cheaper to pop into local garage to get it checked, only takes few mins be easier than buy a pressure gauge then finding out you don't have the correct adaptor
