The torque app is available form the google play store on android run smart phones and tablet pc.Its free but you can buy a premium version with addons for a few quid.You will need a Bluetooth obd2 scanner which you can buy form fleebay for about 10-20 quid.I got one but for some reason it wont work on my focus but did work well on my Honda...wiered.

Hey Sal, nice post. I'm thinking of doing this too, do you have any more pics? ie close ups of the job in progress? I was reading up on EGR valves and they seem completely pointless. Ok, they might lower NOx, but then you have to burn more fuel to get the performance back and then create more pollution!


hi mate, sorry no photos of it but if you click on the photo then it will give you some more info which i hope you find useful

there is also a iobd2 app but i dont know if its available for the iphones?

Ford has its own special protocols, so an OBD11 reader/ OBD11 to bluetooth adaptor that works with a Honda, may not work with a Ford, if it cant read the Ford protocols - sometimes you may have to pay a bit more to get the right one

Is it only TDCi's that it's worth blanking the EGR valve off?

Can TDDi's be done too or would there be no effect? Does the TDDi even have one? haha

Really not knowledgeable in a car we've had in the family since new but it's always been looked after by the family mechanic and all my cars have been petrol :)


Is it worth given the EGR valve and inlet manifold and good clean first?

Many thanks

your more likely to have it. if you can clean it first. my previous car had one and the egr was covered in black gooey stuff, not nice at all. once cleaned and blanked it will be better for your engine.

As Sal has said - better blanked/ a TDDI is liable to have an EGR

If anything the EGR on a TDDI seems to produce even more "goop" than a TDCI,

A TDDI is likely to have a euro3 ECU so can be blanked with no problems

Brilliant cheers chaps!

I've bought a blanking plate off Egay but it's only made of aluminium so i'll copy the design and knock one up at work made from Stainless Steel...simple.

Hopefully it'll be as easy to get to and sort out.

Hi there, job done yesterday and all is well (so far) lol. Easy job to do, less than 20mins if ya get stuck in. Car definetly feels smoother when running, less smoke when booting it. Not really noticed an improvement in performance but saying that, I tend to drive a little more sedately these days haha. Overall very pleased with the job.

 

As far as parts go,,, I bought the Torque Pro App, from the Android Market £2.95 I think, then ordered the ELM327 from here http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1497.l2649 take no notice of the price, im sure its a typo, I payed £11.85 for it, but best to contact them first to get them to ammend the add.

 

Last but not least the blanking plate, the add shows one with a hole in it, but they also do solid plates, you just need to add message to seller at the checkout. http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1497.l2649

 

Both items were shipped and recieved really quickly, so hopefully all will remain well, and I'll be happy lol.

No mate, they don't need anything as far as I'm aware. The tin gasket that is in there needs removing, it has 4 locating tabs, just bend them back and remove. Then refit the bolts loosly and slide in the blanking plate and push down to make sure its fully home, then re-tighten and your done.
