    Default Anyone near Doncaster able to help me with egr/boost sensor cleaning ??

    Looking at getting some carb cleaner on payday and having a go and cleaning the egr valve and the boost sensor. Anyone near to Doncaster willing to help me, as I'm not overly confident about doing it tbh (or I could travel to your if you're reasonably near) ?
    Thanks Steve

    Hi Jody mate. Cars running fine.Well, sort of..
    Sometimes 1st/2nd doesn't quite pull as it should....thought maybe boost sensor clean might help ?
    Also over past few days car/spanner light came on-went off for a few days, came on for a bit, went off then been on most of today.Car seems to drive fine, but thought maybe cleaning the EGR valve and the boost sensor might help, maybe sorting out a potential problem before one arises fully if you know what I mean ?
    It only seemed to start doing this after the bad weather had cleared (also had the emissions pump graphic on the way to work yesterday, but it went off and hasn't been seen since

    Still love the car mate and am very pleased with it providing of course it doesn't die on me

    Does anyone know if using the 10k boost diesel de-coke method and cleaning the boost sensor will be ok, or should i really take the egr valve off and try and clean it ? Very nervous about doing that as I'm not very tech with cars...
    Also just to mention, I usually fill up at my local texaco and put £30 diesel in @ Tescos the other day when I was low-could this have anything to do with the spanner occasionally coming on and the ems light coming on sometimes as I mentioned previously to Jody, or could this just be a coincidence ?
