Default D4 VEA 'check engine' light / EGR fault thread

I thought it might be useful to have a single thread for those that have had the 'check engine' light pop up on their D4 VEA-engined car because of EGR valve problems.

Please post roughly how old the car was from new, and how many miles it had done when the light popped up.

For me: V60 D4 manual, 'check engine' light came on after 5 and a half months and about 6,000 miles from new. Going into the supplying main dealer this week to have a new EGR valve and EGR cooler fitted, which the dealer tells me is the recommended fix.

XC60 D4 Manual. 5 1/2 months old, 7,500 miles from new. Booked in for standard change, as described, on 28th Jan.

The good news is the dealers are not blanking this. They know the issue, I think they are expecting this to become a full recall.

Can't remember exactly when but about 3-4mths into ownership and with perhaps 5-6k on the clock. Dealer reset it on first attempt and then replaced it completely at the second visit (within days).

Just had a call from my dealer telling me not to bring my car in on Friday - it seems Volvo HQ is advising them not to fit the new EGR valves they have been shipping, but to wait for a newer revised valve which will be shipping soon. Apparently the EGR cooler is fine, but the valve is being updated again.

If your car is booked in for this work, probably worth contacting your dealer.

Do you know if the 'new revised' valve will be fitted at the factory to new build cars customers are waiting for to be delivered, or will cars on order be shipped with the current faulty one?

@Volvorocks - no idea, I'm afraid.

As far as I can work out (and this is just my opinion), this EGR problem isn't a full factory recall as yet: Volvo is just gearing up its dealers to replace the components under warranty if the customers' cars get a 'check engine' light.

I do not know if they plan to fit the new components when the cars are in for routine servicing, even if the owners don't report a problem, or what they will do about new cars being built or at dealerships ...

Normally revised parts are fitted as soon as parts are available. There will be a "from chassis no." at some point. Dealer can probably tell you.

I lack faith in dealers. One suggested that the V60 Polestar was naturally aspirated - and had to go and check when I queried it!!

Goodness!! I don't think Volvo have used any naturally aspirated engines for years and years. Find a better dealer. Clan might know when Volvo release the info.
