Does anyone have a source for a EGR valve gasket for VY V6? So far Repco and Burson have nothing, and Holden tell me the part is discontinued (part #92064279 the local dealer advised).

Although solved the worst of the misfire issues by cleaning TB, still having issues and fault code that keeps reappearing after clearing says "EGR position error" so before I fork out dollars for a new EGR valve I thought I'd try cleaning this one, but I figure that'd mean I'd need a new gasket.... which is hard when nobody seems to sell them!

Any solutions???

Very common fault on the ecotec, it gums up with carbon and triggers that fault. You can use a liquid gasket maker in place of the gasket.

Take the egr valve of & clean it, then reinstall, with a gasket or as above ^. Should be ok after that.

Thanks, time to head to Repco for some liquid gasket. Looking at the site I'm assuming I'd need the higher temp one for an EGR?

No help with your problem but this goes to show that cleaning a TB does help fix issues.
There was some comments a while back from a few people that claimed cleaning the TB does nothing and is just a waste of time.

Cleaning the TB helps because you are cleaning the carbon out of the IAC port. Has the same effect as a dodgy accelerator pump on a carby, will give a flat spot.
