Have been reading through as have issues with black smoke under hardish acceleration and when driving and with little acceleration the car jerks as if about to cut out.
Took off and cleaned the EGR the other weekend and seems to have helped a bit and will be doing the inlet manifold this weeks end.
With most of the reading I've done on here I've got myself a blanking plate but am being a complete thicko now where the feck does it go?
On the pick below I've marked 3 things in red. I'm assuming the plate goes where the hose and chrome pipe in middle that comes across the front of the block? What do you do with this hose and pipe? Does it go back on with the plate??
Also is this the Intercooler pipe? Seen numerous post about checking for splits relating to my issues?
Finally what is the small black hose on the left of the EGR next to the electrical connection?
