My wife was driving the Smart when with no Cel's it slowed and acted like it was in limp mode. I drove it to find 3000 rpm tops and weak below so researched others issues and pulled the turbo and EGR valve. The turbo looks great and the EGR looks clean but I cleaned it anyway. (Just a little soot.) I checked all the Intercooler hoses and put it back together . I disconnected the battery over night too. I have 2 code readers and neither read any codes. I went out and drove it and it now has good power up to 3000 but that is it.
I hear no leaks from Intercooler so I am guessing I still have a bad egr. valve. Where are people finding them and how much? Is there something else to try before I spend $300.00 with shipping to get one here from Europe?
