Just to confirm, the clutch and flywheel were replaced to cure this problem and the problem still persists? or was the clutch changed at an earlier time? Thanks, Ross

*thinking it would cure the problem but it hasnt. Cant think what else it could be.would transmission have anything to do with it?Does the clutch/flywheel have any influence on the actual running of the engine/injectors?Would the opening /closing of the egr valve have anything to do with clutch?
