Egr Valve Stuck

09 December 2013 - 01:05 PM

I've got a focus 1.8 tdci 2006 when one morning it would not start then I called the AA and tried spraying
Some liquid down the EGR inlet pipe and still nothing then he put a blanking plate in the EGR then it started . A new EGR valve is £450 but my friend (ford mechanic) came and had taken the EGR valve apart and it had seized up so the motor on the valve wasn't turning the valve so he was turning the valve manually with long nose pliers very gently which loosened it . So once cleaned he reassembled it took the blanking plate out cleaned the pipes and it started. Fords won't take this apart and clean it they would only fit a new valve costing a lot of money. I hope this helps any one with the same problem

Hi To All Nice To Be Back In A Focus

23 August 2013 - 02:20 PM

My focus had starting problems when I first purchased it back in march 2013 so returned to garage where I purchased it but also got info from my mate at fords . My car on first start was smoking and then running rough just for about 2-4 minutes so found out it was two of the glow plugs were not heating up correctly so the garage got them changed and since been fine goes like a bat out of hell.
