    Default Wynns EGR3 any different from Carb Cleaner?

    Hi all,

    First a big thanks to everyone who posts the various fixes on this forum.

    I've done the EGR clean on my 150 CDTi. Took it off and was shocked by the build up of greasy soot. Anyway, cleaned that out, then decided to do the Boost sensor clean. Again shocking amounts of gunk.

    While I was busy I checked the swirl valve linkage bar. Sure enough that was lying comatose next to the swirls valves like a drunk in the gutter. Fished it out and stuck on some tap washers I had in the garage. That fix also worked a treat.

    The next step seemed to be spraying some cleaner into the intake to get rid of any deposits. I've read some threads about Wynns EGR3 and 10K Boost. Anyway, I have some Carb Cleaner left from the previous jobs and was wondering if it's basically the same stuff? Would that clean out my intake manifold in the same way?

    Once again, thanks to all the experts. This site is so much more informative than a Haynes Manual.

    I went in to a local motor factors asking about wynns egr3 and explained what it was for and what I was going to do.He said the carb cleaner would be the same thing and do the same job.
