Help 1.8Tdci Egr Valve

Recommended Posts

I had to remove the wipers and scuttle panels in order to access the EGR Valve bolts. Was a bit of a pain but worth it.

Not there.

If you look to the back of the picture just above the red ring there is a corrugated pipe.

The plate goes in between the egr body and that pipe making sure the metal gasket between the pipe and egr is left on the pipe side of the blanking plate.

I have a 2002 1.8 tdci (115bhp). I was really sceptical about blanking off the EGR valve, then I thought I'd just give it a go, I can always take it off again. 2 years on and I've never looked back, as soon as I fitted it I had a better throttle response from my car and now I'm seeing massive improvements in fuel economy. That said, mine is a 2002, I don't know what tweaks they'e made to the 1.8 tdci lump since mine was built, but I could see it having the same results. I'm just not sure if it will bring up any fault codes (which mine didn't), as you have a newer car than mine.

Should not bring no codes. They are prone to the 2ltr tdci

Hi Paul,

Was just wondering, did you slip the blanking plate in at the turbo side of the pipe or the EGR side? It probably won't make a difference and I'm just being too cautious, but I thought I'd ask a fellow MK1 Focus owner who's done this before. Cheers. :P

Sounds like it's been previously incorrectly blanked - '' thin plate with a hole in the middle '' !

Hi mate, I put it at the EGR end, mainly cos it's a lot simpler to get to. Whilst I had the pipe off that goes to the EGR valve though I gave it a really good clean. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw how clogged up this got. The pipe was roughly around an inch in diameter and the wall of soot deposited in that pipe reduced the diameter to about a quarter of an inch. best mod I've done on my car since I bought it back in 2010 (though I haven't really done much to it :D.

nice one ajzetecs for doing that. I'm sure you'll be happy with it and hopefully you might see the results. Just out of curiosity did you get any error codes?

Thanks mate, bought a blanking plate and planning on installing it tomorrow at lunch time! :D Might take off the pipe in the future and give it a good clean myself, but the blanking plate alone should do the trick.

Fitted my blanking plate earlier today during my lunch break. The only time I've driven it since has been the ten minute journey home. I can't say that I've noticed any differences from before it was fitted. My car doesn't seem to have any black smoke or soot coming out of the exhaust anymore, which is a plus. :D
