In Topic: 06 1.8Tdci. Couple Of Error Codes And An Egr Question

23 October 2014 - 07:07 PM

So an update,

Very helpful mechanic came out to have a look. Took off the right hand side and found some small soot deposits but the valve itself was fine and moving fine. After reassembly (also checked the air filter etc and were also fine) the EGR error code has gone but the glow plug error still remains along with limp mode. Mechanic did not think the glow plug code would turn the car to limp mode and that the EGR valve is still at fault.

I've emailed a friend at ford and he has come up with nothing. Before I start looking at another EGR valve can anyone help/shine a little light on the situation. I'm really stumped for ideas.

I have egr envy of you guys at the moment. Talked to a mechanic of mine and he has told me that it is actually built in to the inlet and not a separate component.

He will clean it for me tomorrow but his gut feeling is it will need to be replaced and they ain't cheap.

Thanks,

So looking at what appears to be my EGR. It's easier to access but looks harder to clean. I.e I can take the right side off but then have to take the left side off also?

Thanks for posting. On the basis of what I have seen under my bonnet today I think My EGR is slightly different in terms of type and positioning?

And example here

I think the disassembly on the guide getting under the manifold would be helpful.

With regards to the plate, would it affect mot emissions?
