Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, just looking for some advice please? So on
Monday morning our car cut out at a busy junction
with no warning lights or any indication that any
was wrong. Car would turn over but not start. RAC
came and after about 30secs of turning the car
over it starts! His code reader gives a fault for a
glow plug but he thinks it might be the EGR valve?
Thinks it might be stuck open allowing a build of
exhuaust gases into the engine making it cut out?
Again there were no warning lights? Anyway took it
to my trusted mechanic who has worked on all my
cars. He said they will have a look at the egr valve
and clean if necessary and then blank off and
remap in the future! So my mechanic let's me know
today code reader says faulty glow plug, new set
put in and that the EGR valve seems fine and it
could not get stuck open because it operates
mechanically if u will using a vacuum to open and
shuts back with a spring? Car is running fine now
and my mechanic will check again in a week. Just
wondered what anyone thought about this right or
wrong. Thanks Chris
