Blanked egr problem


Recommended Posts

I have blanked my 1.6 tdci EGR valve.

The problem is that when I rev to 3000 under load it goes into limp mode.

This was the exact problem as before blanking.

Any suggestions, I have been told I just need to clear the fault?

I have just changed the fuel filter but now cannot get it to start. Have primed filter but will not start. What do I need to do ?

you need to prime it more.... changing fuel filter is a difficult task unfortunately. I would suggest you need to fill the filter to brim, then keep pumping it through.


As for the error, I dont believe that will be EGR related...

Turns out it was the filter that was causing limp mode. I noticed that the colder the weather more unresponsive the car. You were right about filter needs a lot of priming and a good charge in your battery.
