VW GOLF MK5 1.9Tdi Emissions Workshop

Asked by Aug 22, 2017 at 06:43 AM about the 2007 Volkswagen Golf

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi Guys
My car's check engine light came on and showed
"Emissions Workshop" on the display.The car did
not show any lack of performance
whatsoever.Took the car to a mechanic to check
the error code and found that it said "insufficient
flow".The mechanic removed the EGR valve and
cleaned it as it was apparently clogged.I would not
know I wasn't there to see for my self.He cancelled
the error and returned the car to me.Paid him
almost 1.5k for the work done.30kms after leaving
his workshop the "check engine" light with
"emissions workshop" came on again.Went back to
the mechanic and he looked around the EGR and
found that one of the pipes came off.After fixing it
again he cancelled the error and everything
seemed good.Almost 50kms later the same lights
came on again.Knowing that I already paid him to
fix it I doubt his capability of actually doing the
proper job.Has anyone had the same problem?I
just need some piece of mind.Dont want the
mechanic to claim for different issues if he
could've fixed it the first time.
