Hi. What a great site. I had problems , where by the car started to hesitate at low speed like a slight mis-fire, I was able to diagnose this as possiblly being the EGR valve. I read how many people had broken this trying to remove it (it was a close one for me) luckily I took my time and as suggested used a socket on a extension and knocked it round slowly until it moved freely, also applying some lubricant.

I would like to post a question if any one can help? I cleaned the EGR valve with carb cleaner although it was not to bad but also found the manifold very chocked up with black gunge. I cleaned this from the first chamber which lead down to the egr but was reluctant to try and clean any further as it looked very thick and I was worried if I dislodged it where it might go, can I clean this out and if so how?

By the way what I did clean seems to have cured my problem and also cured another where by when accelerating in 1st and lifting of the throttle on gear change to 2nd the revs where staying high almost like I was an in-experienced driver leaving my foot on the gas.

Thanks.

egr valve

Hi do you mean the metal gasket on the egr valve? as this is the only gasket type thing I came across. If so no I didn't but someone may advise that I should have!

I took the upper part off again the part that has a vaccuum connection and a control flap and with a piece of plastic plumbing tube scrapped out all the gunky deposits, so far so good. Now contemplating trying a vegetable oil mix with diesel, just need the bottle to try, maybe a small amount 1st say 10%.

Cheers.

Probably the only thing you could do different is use a clearer title more specific to the problem,

Cheers!
