Any longer term updates on this?
 
I have a similar fault, but it actually occured after I blanked the EGR.


Hi, not really any update due to removing the plate to try and find a exhaust gas leak. Which turned out to be leaking around the turbo- to-cat join.

I'm not sure on the layout of the 1.6 tdci system. In the Ford Focus guides section Lenny has done a detailed guide on fitting a EGR blanking plate on the 1.6 engine

I believe there are two locations where the EGR can be blanked on the 2.0TDCi
As in: there's two locations where the flange is the same.

Noe somewhere between these two locations is a pressure sensor which is triggered of course when the flange further up the line is blanked,
However: if the egr system is blanked as close to the exhaust as possible then the pressure wont build around the sensor location.

Sadly ive not been near a 2.0TDCi to show anyone where it is though.


Hi, does this help? Number 5 where it bolts to exhaust manifold

Is that with a largish amount of power during acceleration? Mine does it after it's remap. I think it is the fly wheel protesting a bit.


Mines fine whilst accelerating, it's when your cruising at a set speed.
