Got her back today, idles like new. Such a relief to sit in the seat without feeling a chops wobbling! Egr blank tomorrow, green cotton filter next month. Onward for a clean breathing machine !!!!

Sorry, I know what I read, but is this right? EML light on is NOT an MOT failure?

 

I want to blank my egr on a Focus euro 4 tdci... from the reading on previous pages mondeo and foci euro 4's are not the same, so perhaps a euro 4 focus might not get the EML light?

The Focus 1.6 TDCI Euro4 can have a solid EGR blanking plate fitted without the EML coming on - many forum members have now fitted one, Lenny has produced a guide -

Yes it is right for the time being. It is not an MOT failure, mine and several other owners who have had the EML light on have passed with no problems.

 

Some get an advisory just to let the owner know the tester is aware of it, others don't.

Quick update guys, fitted the blank 200 miles ago and I have noticed an improvement. The response is better between 30 and 50 with no smoke. Although there is still a little bit of smoke on start up. Not sure if that will clear but need to give it time. Eml came on after 60 miles which I knew about but not bothered by

on the front of the EML and EGR blank, I believe Stef123 did this very mod. His EML came on and he ignored it, in the end I believe his car just said "hes not listening, so stop telling him" and the EML went off :P so there is hope for everyone :)

From what I have read, its only one or two cars that have had the EML go off if ignored.

 

In my case I have left if for 6 months and it still never went out. I am up to 4 months this time and its still on :lol:

I was surprised how quick it took to fit the plate. I was thinking an hour but 5 mins later it was on. Well worth it tho, smoke free is a good thing!

Haven't noticed much smoke from mine but I see it as still worth doing. Might get a chance after work one night this week if it's only a 5 min job

It should improve the response/ reduce lag in every gear at part-throttle at certain revs/ load  - in some gears it will be more noticable than others depending on driving style etc  

 

A solid EGR blanking plate can only "fix" the EGR, (or the additional smoke the EGR causes) not other things like leaking injectors(or the smoke these other things cause) etc - fitting a new air filter and cleaning out the inlet manifold can help reduce smoke by increasing the air flow into the engine (or stopping the air flow being reduced, to be more correct)

The new air filter was to let the engine breathe more efficiently. Not that fussed about performance if I'm completely honest. I'm a tight wad and like my respectable mpg figures and want that to improve. Completely understand that the smoke can be caused by other factors. One step at a time :)

Jim, if you've got he same plate I had ( open slot fixing) the easiest thing I found was not to take the bolts right out. it can be slid straight into position and the bolts nipped back up again, job done
