Yes easy enough to do. I did mine last week, using wynns egr cleaner, which i got off e-bay.

The instructions that i got from the supplier was as follows.

Warm up engine, and switch off
Remove pipe from the air-box to the egr valve
Re-start engine, and set rpm to 2000. ( this i did by using my mate on the throttle )
Spray product into egr port in no more than two second intervals

WARNING, if engine revs increase, or deisel knocking occurs, whilst spraying, set engine revs to idle
Continue till all product has been used
Let engine tick over for two minutes, then switch off
Replace hose etc
Re-start engine, and rev 5-10 times, or drive for 5-10 kilometers
DO NOT EXEED 3000rpm, whilst doing this.

As i say i did this to mine last week, and did it with no problem. Blew some crap out though lol

Yes Sounds like a good idea. Unfortunatley hasnt sorted my problem, but one more thing i can rule out. Drove it as i said after the clean, and it was perfect. Went out tonite and slowed down to turn left after a couple of miles, turned left and went to accelerate, and it happened again. Real sluggish, seems like the turbo doesnt kick in. Stopped, switched off, and immediatley started it back up, and drove home normaly. Cant get me head round it. Looks like taking it to ford for a diagnostic. Never mind AAAGH.

Yippeee. Just done mine, and took it for a good spin. Sounds like a new un, and runs well. No issues at all with doing it. Exept for upsetting the neibough of the R.B.L. club, as i did it on there car park. Bloke came round and started moaning about the noise, as he was sitting in his back garden lol. Sent him off with a flea in his ear. By the time he had finished going off on one i had done it, only took ten minutes to complete. Bet he was well pleased when the plume of black smoke went over his garden, but i cant control the breeze lmao. Hopefully this has cured my problem. Worth doing it 10/10.
