Hello.

 

Installed a stainless steel blanking plate to the egr valve on my 2006  focus 1.8tdci. Duratorq. Now  a light keeps coming   on in the rev counter. Its a cog with an asterisk inside it. Also the egr valve seems to have gone very loud. No engine management light. Is this normal? Cheers

If you have got an electric egr I think you may have to plug it into a computer to have it deleted im not 100% sure,

mine is diesel, it might pay to take it out and see weather you still get the lite, also have you put it in the right side?

It's unusual for an EGR blanking plate (if fitted correctly) to trigger a warning light on the Lynx engine.  I did mine approx 2 years ago & no noisy EGR valve or warning lights.  I'd check for boost leaks 1st mate.

Hello. It came with two new gaskets so fitted one either side of the blanking plate. Fitted it to the top pipe. Warning light doesn't throw up any codes. Tried taking it out and no more warning light. EGR still sounds quite loud though.
