    Default EGR and swirl valves injector No. 3 (again)

    I was wondering if nthere was a date that Vx (Fiat) started to fit the modified units to the engine as the car I am looking at is a 2009 (150 model) and would have thought that the engine would be at the stage all mod's would have been carried out in manufacture?

    Or would this be too much like common sense?????

    2007 I think pretty much covers when the replacement parts were fitted.

    Since that point has there been a reduction in the number of failing cars or (as I suspect with the EGR at least) does the unit still require removal and cleaning on a roughly 30K or failure basis?

    I have no major issue in doing the task but like to understand what I am getting in to before hand.

    Pass, but being so new true failure figures wouldn't be known as yet.

    OK and thank you, I am just balancing up the situation of buying the car, it's certainly the newest car I can afford in my list by being 13 months old, the rest are 2006/possibly 2005! for similar money and that itself is of good value so want to ensure I fully understand any possible failure's.

    from my experience of having multiple failures, ie inlet and egr to name a few i would find out who owned the car first and see if it has done motorway or short runs (family car) as these cars need to be driven and driven hard once in a while and since i've had mine it does alot of motorway miles and has had no egr faults. if you do get the car its not hard just to give the egr and boost sensor a quick clean to be sure.
