    Hi. I have a 2004 Civic. It ran for about 30 miles and then the glow plug symbol came on and the car cut out and wouldn't re start. Car then started after twenty minutes. Glow plug light stayed on but the car then ran for another five miles and did the same again. Put a fault reader on the car and it shows an EGR fault. Looking at the forums there seems to be lots of possible causes on this. Any ideas guys????

    When was the last time your car had a major service?

    have you recently bought the car. . if so was it from a garage. if so there is new legislation in place which gives you a 6 month returns policy for cars which the vendor gets a chance to rectify the issue or give a full refund.

    Clogged up EGRs are common the 1.7 engine, while it's kinda obvious I'd say give that a good clean, along with the throttle body and intake manifold and see how she runs afterwards. Most of the time that alone makes a drastic difference on aging diesel engines.

    Have you managed to sort this out Gordon?
    Was it the EGR?
