    Default Done the search, lubing/greasing EGR Valve soleniod

    Hi chaps

    Done the egr solenoid drill tap and replace. Used a lubricant I had to hand (no not that one!)

    It is slowing again, I believe the lube (again, not that one!) has dried out.

    What is the best lubrication/grease for the solenoid pin to run at its best movement/condition please?

    I'll take it off at the weekend, put on the best suggested lubrication and and the same time fit my fiat gasket on too.

    Thanks for your anticipated help

    I only sprayed mine with loads of WD40, and it's been fine for over a year now.
    I guess if you're having real problems with it drying out, a good molybdenum disulphide grease would help, that's if you could get it on the whole thing properly which might not be possible. Good thing about moly grease is it continues to work when/if it dries out.
    But, it's very thick stuff - not sure it'd be suitable really :/
