Re: Renault Laguna II 1.9Dci - Engines - Hesitation Cured after EGR cleaned
It's getting round to that time of year again where I'm thinking about cleaning mine again. Was sure I asked this earlier in the thread, but I can't find my post, so I'll ask again if anyone would be good enough to answer!
Is it safe to spray carb cleaner down into the hole n the outer casing that the valve comes out of (1.9dci model). About half way in there's a hole about the size of a 10p coin. I did this last time and to start with there was some coughing & spluttering (not to mention the car almost stalling before springing to life.....before settling back to normal again).
I covered the whole up to stop any large deposits of carbon getting down in there, but I don't know if spraying the cleaner would help clean things up...or cause more damage??
