When I first got my Corsa from an auction the engine management light was on, and a diagnostics test said the EGR valve needed replacing. The car was running fine at this point, so I left it and after approx 1 year it seemed to have very low revs when started and for a few mins it crawls along at 5-10mph. Pumping the pedal, putting it to the floor seems to do nothing, but suddenly it will kick in and run seemingly fine. There is little acceleration though and pumping the pedal or putting your foot down all the way does nothing. On motorways it struggles getting speed up to 70.
Now I have had the EGR valve changed, and the car is exactly the same as it was. Vauxhall are suggesting another diagnostics test for £40 which is nice as 'something else may have gone wrong since then'. Any suggestions?
