How can I tell if the valve is permanently closed? Can't see any black smoke out the back of the car, and I had blocked up the vacuum hose some 10 mins after turning the engine off. Is that enough time to leave me to assume that the valve has closed itself?


Thanks :)

Ended up blocking the vacuum hose on top of the Valeo egr valve in the end, as couldn't be bothered with taking the manifold off just to get to it. Far hareder to fit the plate on this 2011 Mondeo engine set up than my 2003 Focus!


Started the engine 10 times since, and still no egr fault code showing. Sure it's a matter of time though, judging by other comments in this thread.

ok thanks. Just have to work out exactly where to put the blanking plate now. As nobody seems to know the set-up for the EGR valve in my photos (not in Haynes manual either) :wacko:

Ok thanks for the advice. I will probably just fit the complete blanking plate then and put up with deleting the fault code once a month.


I guess that it's proably too difficult to fashion a mechanism to change the electric signal across the EGR terminals in line with when it should and shouldn't be open through normal driving? Or a mechanism for changing the pressure on the vacuum hose perhaps? No idea at the moment where I would start with that, nor do I have the time to investigate!


The Valeo SKU number (V29002691) for the unit in my photo appears on a few dutch websites. So perhaps that is why no-one else has posted photos before? I'm sure there are many others who out there who have this style of EGR valve though. Looks like I will have to take some of the manifold off to get to the very short section of pipe going from the manifold to the EGR valve though. So it's certainly not as easy to install the blanking plate than described by the OP!


Will the car pass an MOT if the EGR fault is flagged? Or will I need to delete the error code using the F-Super software, just before handing over for a MOT?

I have managed to locate my EGR valve on a 2011 Ford Mondeo 2L TDCi, towards the front cnetre of the engine.


Can anyone confirm from the photos where exactly the EGR blanking plate will go?


And if the blanking plate does not have a 10mm (I have both), then does the engine management system (FORDconvers+) repeatedly warn you of the EGR error every day?


Or is it something that you can live with and not notice whilst driving, and just periodically delete the error with F-Super program and the like?
