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
Hi I've never removed the EGR to clean it. The main reasons I want to blank it is, to stop black sooty crap being pumped back into the engine, secondly I'm hoping it might help cure "rough running" at about 1800rpm. It happens at any speed but Pacifically at 1800rpm. Any other suggestions to was could cause this?
