  3. i have been told after blanking the egr u need to remap the ecu and take the egr programme out , othervise eml light comes on or engine system fault and car goes in to the limp mode is that true ? if its just the eml light comes on thats not a problem i can drive with light on it doesnt bother me but if the car goes in to the limp mode its impossible to drive ?
  4. i have an 2006 1.8tdci ford focus , egr valve was the problem , i have replaced it with secondhand one , after couple days problems started again like black smoke , car goes in to a limp mode , loss of power etc, then i took it to the ford for diagnostic , code came up p0489 which they said egr valve , or wiring , electrician checked the wiring , there is no problem , so thinking now second egr was faulty with 1.8 engines i have been told that its part of the manifold i am wondering, would blanking plate sort my problem out many thanks
  5. hi i am new to this i don't really know where to start lol before i have bought the car there was a problem with the car , and car was going to the limp mode and diagnostic couldnt really identify anything , after taking to the ford diagnostic glow plugs has been replaced cost of £500 ( with towing paying local garage etc ) then i have bought the car, engine system fault light was keep coming on , but when i start the car light was going off !! , took it to the local garage , it was egr valve , before i replaced the egr valve i put petrol in it by mistake, then engine drained but fault still there !!! anyway mechanic cleaned the egr valve with spray that didnt help at all , then last week i have bought second hand egr valve and replaced with these engines egr is part of manifold so couldnt buy it seperatly i was on holiday mechanic said car driving fine , i have picked the car up this morning driving back home engine system light come back on again i m not mechanical minded so i dont really know what could it be the fault gonna take it back there again for diagnostic , but i m thinking shall i take it to the ford and get diagnostic done there it seems like everytime i fix something , there is another thing coming up any ideas by the way car is 2006 ford focus titanium 1.8 tdci many thanks
