[Warning Light] Fault Code P1161
#1
Hi,

Citroen Berlingo 2006, 1.4 Petrol, 65k miles.

Just had the yellow engine management light come on, and my OBD II scanner reader is showing code P1161, but I can't seem to find too much about this code. I have cleared the code now, the van seems to run ok at the moment and the code has not reappeared yet.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Thank you.

Could you possibly give me some further guidance as to how to check/correct this fault, please?

You'd have to locate and clean / test / repair the EGR valve, it must be somewhere between the exhaust manifold and intake. No idea exactly where on the petrol engine though.

Normally this is a diesel fault, less likely in a petrol engine as they don't produce the sticky gum that diesels do. But, not impossible. They still often have EGR valves but I don't know the Citroen petrol 1.4 to that detail I'm afraid.

I never heard the old (2006) petrol PSA engines to have an EGR valve. I have a PSA 1.6 (2007) and it certainly does not have one. I'll give that is 1.6, but not that extremely different than the 1.4 from that age. There is always a first of course.

I would be inclined to think that the code reader is misreading the fault or something of that nature. If I were the OP, I would try Diagbox/Lexia before starting looking at where the EGR valve might be.

My earlier 1.4 has the same engine and there is no EGR - I'd ignore the code as an issue if it doesn't come back and the engine is running well!

There you go, another reason not to use generic code readers on Citroen's.

I must admit I'm not so clued up on petrol engines having had nothing but diesels for 20 years.
