    confused can anyone tell me

    had a friend of mine take apart the egr(removed black casing) and checked the metal plunger and then the spring. metal plunger was fine very easy to push in and out, the spring when in and out what seemed to be ok

    now the question about these stupid egr valves is as follows

    he connected a current tester to the battery and and started touching the metal face of the black cased side and was saying that the egr was no good (bear in mind hes Portuguese, bit of english speaking) i think he wasying the current was stuck open or he could get no current?

    now would he be able to tell if the egr which i believe is a solenoid face was not working properly?


    any help is greatly appreciated

    dont wanna buy one unless it is shot really as need the money for manifold and 3rd injector!!

    You can try it on another car... unplug the cars electrical connector and plug it into your EGR.. no need to swap them the EGRs, when you rev the car you should see the plunger move in the EGR itself, this will tell you if its opening or closing... also dont think the casing it tied down to earth... so dont think that is a valid test what he did..

    so if i find someone else near me who has a veccy, take the egr of my car and plug into there connection?
    so it does not do any harm if its not fixed in with the bolts?

    it was the face that is there when you take open the black casing, think he earthed it on the car but im not sue, you reckon he wouldnt be able to tell then?
