I now have this EGR error on my vehicle(2009 3.2 Did gen4) which throws a CEL with EGR code. No loss in performance but the engine run-on slightly everytime I switch it off. I noticed this a few days ago after arriving at the coast from the Highveld, but the CEL light only came on yesterday.

I have an egr blanking plate on the inlet side but not at the exhaust side. Have been running it for many moons with no fault code so suspect that the error might be related to the EGR stepper motor as above. Maybe I should have blocked it off at exhaust side as well to prevent clogging of the stepper motor.

For now I have just cleared the fault with my Torque app and bluetooth OBDII reader and has not returned but the run on is still there. I may remove the blanking plate to see if it makes a difference but not keen to start swinging spanners as yet on my holiday :-(

OK some feedback on this.

I had error code P2413 Powertrain Exhaust Gas Recirculation performance. This was when I was down at the coast on holiday. I cleared the fault a few times on drives but it always returned. No loss of engine performance, just a slight engine run-on at switch off and the check engine light. On my return trip I again cleared the fault at the start and since home at Highveld altitudes it has not returned and the car switch off with no run on. So definately linked to altitude and air pressure. I had an EGR blanking plate fitted on the inlet side some time ago so not sure if this could be the cause but I doubt it as I have visited the coast earlier the year with it also fitted and had no issues then.

What to do? Must I maybe clean the EGR stepper motor or something, even though the exhaust gas is blocked off it still is functioning so might be causing the error?
