Your ECU is re-learning after the clean and should settle down.   When I took my EGR apart and saw it had rusted for the reasons I gave in my post above I simply replaced it (after making the drain hole bigger) and it worked perfectly until I eventually sold the car.  At the end of the day if your valve is shot no amount of cleaning it will work.  

 

I applaud FOCA on his passionate essay but the original poster said he has a Euro 4 and I said the EML light will fail his MOT.  I did mention that EGR blanking worked better on the Euro3.

I am sure that the expert FOCA will be able to explain how to blank the Euro 4 and guarantee the EML light will not come on and fail the MOT.   I hope there is a way now (there certainly wasn't during the years I was on the forums and had my Euro 4) as this will help a lot of people.

I don't want Nate to fake the EML light from coming on to get through the MOT because this can disguise any genuine faults that may occur later....

I think its up to the individual owner to weigh up the pros/ cons and decide whether to run a plate or not,and for us to try and give the right information for him/her to choose

Why?

 

The EML isn't an MOT fail.

I thought the rules were changing so any warning light is a fail

Just had a thought. My BT van has had the EML light on for a while. At its last service, I mentioned it and they said it was just the egr. Wonder if theyre blanking them too

Had new clutch and dmf fitted yesterday, picked car up this morning... What is this strange movement in the clutch pedal, lack of vibration, jolting and creeping forward?
Mechanic said clutch was well worn and "somebody" had converted the dmf to smf he's confident it hasn't done any damage. All for the sum of £688. So she's into me now for over £1300 plus the £1600 purchase price. I'm now left with a measly £100 out of my original budget to modify! Best get saving I suppose!

Hi Jim

Mine has just gone at 148k. although the DMF has been rattling since I bought the car in January. New starter motor in march confirmed the DMF was playing up.

£875 for clutch, dmf, bearing etc including a service and good clean out of pipework ready for the EGR blank to be fitted. Need to protect what's left!

I can see from an earlier post that you are a bit miffed with the car Nathen.

All I can say is stick with it, they really are decent cars. There wouldn't be that many of them out on the road if they were rubbish mate.

Jimbro, she's at 177k I thought the knocking and rattling was the bottom pulley, it was only when that was replaced and MOT advisory was worn clutch that I reached into my pockets.... Again!
