In Topic: Egr Blanked But Engine Doesn't Like It

15 April 2014 - 10:38 AM

after a good blast today..


1st thing this morning big cloud of smoke but settled after that presuming choke?


Only other thing to report is that engine seems to take a tad longer to get up to heat than without the blank, temp usually sits at about 5to12 position and pretty much stays there, now when it gets there it does seem to stop and when I increase power it drops a touch then slowley back up, it might just be me but this seems more efficiant cooling, or I could just be talking !Removed! :unsure:

Yes it does appear to be smoother, especially around the lower rev range, and quieter only slightly though it is a diesel lol. Also keep hearing a quiet dull , i suppose knock would be the best way to describe it, like when you have a chipping stuck in your tyre and you have the window open faster you go the faster the tick the slower etc etc however this knock I can't pinpoint and can only be heard in motion, think its def front half central part of the car. But I don't believe this is related in any way to the egr blank.

:o Thanks for the reminder stoney I knew there was something else I forgot :rolleyes:  although for some strange reason when I went out this morn I noticed 2 cracks in windscreen bottom center about 3 inches apart and 4 inches long, so not happy with that although I am fully comp but will still set me back 75 quid :(

Strangely this morning it started perfect no lights or warnings :blink:


As a bit of madness that just entered my noggin, lol do you think the mpg is going down for you guys because you are not recycling the exhaust fumes through the egr?? ie: 10 units go through the engine 8 get recirced so in essence you have 18 units going through, but with the blank you are losing the 8 extra units.


Think thats the monty python way of explaining it, but as I said it did appear in my head in a moment of utter madness :lol:
