hi mike no warning lights at all now did have one before saying erg valve changed that and had it all reset drove fine for about 150 miles then started all over again but no warning lights took erg valve back off cleaned out all the black coke refitted it and again it worked fine for 100 miles it only does it when i slow down to and island or junction go to excelerate and its like nothing there then all of a sudden it takes off if you know what i mean

Ok from what you are describing this issue is consistent with the butterfly valve in the throttle body sticking and possibly throwing the reading of the EGR off. What I would suggest as a next step is to have a fuel induction service performed on the complete fuel system. This can be performed at most all shops.
