Hi cressws1 - Yes EGR is only related to the diesel engine, the reason is (from my understanding) that the exhaust gasses are recirculated to the engine, and therefore can reduce the amount of Oxygen required for the combustion sequence, this makes it easier for the engine to work as the operating temperature of the engine has been reduced.

Hope this is somewhat along the right lines, any corrections will be happily recieved!


dont know about fords but an EGR valve is not just for a diesel engine. plenty of petrol engines have them, my old mk1 focus 1.6 didnt have one

Petrol and diesel turbo engines have EGR valves in most cases, regarding the wynnes egr cleaner from ebay i can vouch for this stuff i have used it myself on my focus on my dads peaugeot 206 (both cars turbo diesels)and it works a treat.

Hi all,
Ive finally managed to get the spray at a shop called bullseye. Going to do this after work tomorrow now. Just one last question. While im spraying it do i need to rev the car? i think thats what there doing while spraying?

Thanks

Yes i think its a two man job. If you look at the E-bay link i sent you above, there are some instructions on there. Will look on here tomorrow night to see how you get on. Mine came today, but will have a go at it on saturday weather permitting. Good luck!

Ok just looked at the instructions on the advert on E-bay. They are as follows.

Start engine, and run till warm

Set engine to run at 2000 rpm

Spray in short intervals

IMPORTANT, if revs increase whilst spraying, reduce revs to idle

Rpm, and diesel knocking can increase during pulverisation

After each pulverisation, wait for revs to settle

Continue till all the 200mlare consumed

Let the engine run at idle for a few minutes

Turn off engine

Re-attach hose

Re-start engine

After this idling period accelerate the engine 5 to 10 times, or drive for 5 to 10 km

DO NOT EXEED 3000 RPM.

Hope this helps

Very useful instructions, I thought that the EGR had to be removed, but if it can stay in, even a simpleton like me could do it! good stuff as my MPG is getting a bit crappy now so I will see about trying this!

Maybe we should have a thread tutorial on everything you can do to improve the engine efficiency, everything from the bog basics to the likes of this...

If I do decide to keep my car by the end of the weekend then I will probably blister my car with everything I have and then write up a full thread on it!

Hi all,
Well ive finally done the clean and...... The car is finally not smoking :D Its worked very good. Improved bhp a little aswel so im more than happy. My car before was really bad for smoking and now theres hardly anything.

Heres some steps to help you all.

Remove the air flow pipe to your left


Once removed it should look like this..

As you can see the left pipe is now removed.
If you now just clean inside the egr valve with a cloth just to get all the sludge out of it.

Now back to the instructions i was send.

Start engine, and run till warm

Set engine to run at 2000 rpm

Spray in short intervals

IMPORTANT, if revs increase whilst spraying, reduce revs to idle

Rpm, and diesel knocking can increase during pulverisation

After each pulverisation, wait for revs to settle

Continue till all the 200mlare consumed

Let the engine run at idle for a few minutes

Turn off engine

Re-attach hose

Re-start engine

After this idling period accelerate the engine 5 to 10 times, or drive for 5 to 10 km

DO NOT EXEED 3000 RPM.

And thats about it. Once you have followed these instructions you should notice you car running alot better than before. Im really impressed with how simply it was and really want to thank everyone on this forum for you help. Hope my instructions make sense to you all and goodluck with doing it youself. I didnt have any problems doing it. Its really straight forward.

Thanks Again :D
