Possible EGR problem .. or something else ?

Hi there Guys

I have a bit of a problem. I have an 318D 2008 touring (e91) .. my problem is that sometimes when I drive an "reduced motor effect" lamp (yellow) is "shining" in my face and the motor effect is reduced, after 10 - 20 minutes of driving the lamp turns off and the car seems to drive fine Again.

I got the fault codes taken from the car, I hope that some of you have an idea of what this could be ..

Hello chap, I had a very similar. Problem last year, with the same symptoms , where I would be cruising on the motorway, not driving hard, then the yellow engine light would come on randomly , then after a bit go off , and appear at all odd times , really annoying , I had wiring checked and replaced, the turbo rebuilt ,and it never went ,but a few months ago I took my car to a specialist purely to have the EGR removed,and cleaned, and fingers crossed it has solved my problem,so my suggestion is get the egr cleaned ,probably the cheapest option to start with,but may well solve your issue,good luck :-) .

I thought it migh could be the EGR valve .. it's been cleanet so it could be defect .. unless someone else have another idea ?!
