After a year of driving my first car, the 2001 6n2 polo, I got an engine light which said the egr valve is stuck in the open position. Because its stuck in the open position, I did nothing but I will need to do something before my next mot. As someone whos not bothered to buy a new valve I want to clean it before the mot. So I bought the wynns egr valve cleaner, It says to spray into a turned on engine (preferebly 2000rpm) without the air filter in short bursts. The whole idea is for the chemicals to burn with the petrol to release some chemical fumes that will clean the egr valve. Question is, can I take off the air hose (bottom left to the engine cover and big) and spray it into the air hose (facing down amd away from engine cover)? Remembering from when I changed my own air filter, I feel like I'll need to take off the top black engine cover (with air filter) and spray the cleaner directly unto the metal tube inbetween the air filters. And My gut instinct tells me that turning on the engine with the hoses off will be very messy and risky and not worth cleaning the egr valve the lazy way. Is my gut instinct wrong? Or is the metal tube inbetween the air filters not meant for airflow? Id rather be wrong here than make mistakes over there (under the bonnet).
HELP !! Polo 9n GT tdi 130pd BLT engine 2005 I need to know what egr is needed for this engine and if it’s the one that has the anti shudder valve as I have this plug hanging around and now engine management light on and has been mapped out and that but you can’t map the eml out ... Ps it has a egr delete It I think it’s the wrong one as I think it should have the asv attracted as that’s what the cable is for...... when I did the delete that plug was never plugged in and there was no asv there either
hi can anyone advise me on replacing a bme engine, the only bme engine i can get hold of is the newer one without the egr valve, the engine in the car has an egr, will there be any issues with the ecu running the engine without the egr?
Hi all I was looking for a little advice regarding my 2010 1.6tdi. It's been losing coolant over that last few months, not massive amounts but I'm having to top up from min to max every 500 - 700 miles or so. I've checked the following and can confirm: No evidence of leak on the drive No steam from exhaust No rough idle No sweet smells in the cabin No contamination of oil on the cap or dip stick No hiss from coolant tank when engine is cold. I've taken it to a garage for a pressure test and they say they couldn't find any external leaks. They've suggested it's either a head gasket problem or the EGR cooler. Both extremely expensive and they can't say for sure which one is causing the problem, so I might spend the money only to find the problem still exists. I'm at a loss as to what to do. I asked them to do a head gasket sniffer test, but they said because my coolant tank looks stained/dirty it wouldn't be able to give an accurate indication?? If anyone is able to offer some advice, I'd be forever in your debt. Thanks
