I was a bit in 2 minds weather to put a plate in,but I'm glad I did now.no never had an issue with starting,or flashing lights in the dash.better mpg,more torque.solid plate with no holes.works a treat.

Hi guys thought I would let you know I fitted the egr blanking plate to the car seems to drive much cleaner and responsive unfortunately the engine management light came on but on the plus side gives me a good excuse to get it remapped now :-)

Good Result.

 

Just leave the light there, by all accounts, it seems that some engines eventually figure that your not listening and just stop telling you about the EGR :P

hi,

i've just read through this thread, but i still don't understand the reasoning behind 'blanking' the EGR off? why is it not blanked off as standard on the focus?

 

can someone explain please?

 

thanks :)

Hi there ! It's because it helps keep the cars emissions down by recirculating the exhausts gases through the engine again which is fine when brand new but when the egr valve gets coked up you start getting problems what car have you got ?

I have a 55 plate Ford Focus TDCI LX 1.8, i believe its the KKDA03 (115ps/85kW).

 

so can i assume that 'blanking' it off won't affect emissions? by that i mean, will it pass an MOT with the EGR blanked, or would i need to unblank it to get it through an MOT?

Diesels are not tested for emissions.
The MOT just checks for excessive smoke from the exhaust.

Something new I learned today always thought they were tested on emissions mine doesn't smoke any more than it used to I would recommend it car drives loads smoother and more responsive if you ask me :-)
