Well for about a year my EGR blank wasn't sealed properly! Now it is, but still got the wobble at very slight throttle

Maybe not connected then. Thanks for reply anyway!

Hi, just an update. Finally fitted my EGR blanking plate, was really straight forward. Took it for a drive after and was all good. I did have the engine light come once, so cleared it.

 

Any longer term updates on this?

 

I have a similar fault, but it actually occured after I blanked the EGR.

It will most likely throw up an ELM on the 2.0 tdci, since it is a french engine. The 1.8 has an older system and will not complain about it, since its made by ford.

 

the 1.6 should be alright too, alot of users here have blanked their cars, with no issues

 

Yeah the 2.0 on mine goes through phases - it'll be fine for months, and tens of thousands of miles, then decide EML - EGR Circuit high etc.

 

Does anyone know whether the EGR valve itself still moves while the pipe is blanked?

Bizarrely mine also says 89's but they've not been on since I bought the car. Oops

Hopefully it's over spec tho

I agree....

 

So am I going nuts or is artscot still not linking to a tyre with all the right specs? It might well be a good tyre, but if it's not available it's not available.
