Kind of like a trojan heap?

I wonder if there is a Vauxhall forum somewhere out there with a "spot the poor ford" thread


Isn't that a paradox? 


A bit like BMW drivers using indicators...

Gary, unfortunately I am no mechanic (and after a few bottles of vino I'm not much else either...) however.. 


The way I see it, what you have in your car is a diesel engine... crudely:

1. Fuel and air goes in

2. Fuel burns

3. Rubbish goes out the back...


That is; in a sense, an engine.. What you have with an egr is more like this:


1.Fuel and air and exhaust goes in

2.Fuel burns

3.Some rubbish goes out the back, other bits go back round to number 1...


..So honestly I don't see quite how blanking the egr can have any detrimental effect on the whole thing....


So IF your egr has gone belly up, I don't see quite how it can make a difference when a good majority on this forum have blanked theirs anyway.... Dead EGR is surely the same as a working EGR that has been blanked.... Unless of course the EGR is dead and stuck open... in which case blanking it would only be more beneficial...


So hopefully someone with a more mechanically minded noggin can put my above gibberish into a more technical (or correct) direction, but that's my 2 cents anyway..

Definitely a good result although I haven't heard what these extra powers are, do the government get to wear capes and underwear outside trousers? :-P


....don't we all as Ford drivers do that anyway? I thought you had to do that to join the FOC Supporters club???
