      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Thats what im thinking , just taking egr valve off and cleaning it rather than blanking it off , surely thats gotta be an option ??? Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app

    don't know how easy it would be on a ford but laguna egr was right at the front and I just took it off and soaked it in petrol all night and got all carbon deposits off with a toothbrush and it came up spotless with spring and plunger like new.
