@ BernieRubble - Thank you for the suggestion. I have it as my last resort option in regards to the EGR valve.

Does anyone know if a throttle body valve from another model C3 would work equally as well as the one for my vehicle? I'm struggling to find spares and have come across other types of throttle valves that are similar but not identical to mine.

PS - I now have a bit of a steam engine sound coming from my engine compartment. On inspection I noticed that there is grey fumes (smoke) around the throttle valve. So I suspect that my unit has a crack in it, although I have not located the crack.

Thanks again for all your suggestions
