  1. I bought the blanking plate to cure a black smoke problem which its cleared by fitting it...... But it's lost 40-50% of power immediately after fitting it Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  3. I have a 2 litre 130hp mondeo estate 05 mk3 and have fitted a blanking plate...... But power is down and lost grunt! Which end of the pipe should it be fitted? The front end next to egr sensor or the other end at the back right of the engine? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  5. Hi! Can't find any splits! Cars running fine but not any quicker..... I phoned terra clean for an egr and pipe clean but they wanted £250 to do it! The engine light is on but it's because of the blanking plate fitted! I'm thinking of taking egr system off completely and having a remap done instead It's not making as much power as it did still Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  7. HELP! Car was at garage Egr blanking plate was fitted yesterday which sorted out the black smoke problem I had...... But....... Could they fit it anywhere differently to where it should be fitted? It's sorted out the smoke problem but doesn't seem to have as much power as it did before ! It's almost as the turbo Is not working! It doesn't hold back it pulls evenly but doesn't seem as powerful..... Does the blanking plate give cleaner exhaust and better fuel economy at the expense of grunt? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  8. I have a mk 3 estate on an 05 plate! There are 10 bulbs behind clocks! The one behind the fuel gauge has blown and the one between the two main dials in middle have blown!
