    Default Z22YH EGR Blanking

    Hi everyone,

    I noted the part number for th above engine for the blanking plate : 55562899 Catalogue No: 851144.

    Now when this is fitted, what happens to the 2 holes left in the inlet manifold. Do these all come in a kit?

    Also, can you leave the EGR secured in the engine bay, or must I get a ECU download with latest software, which in turn ignores the EGR.

    Thanks for any help

    Hi there
    Just called VX dealer to check the price of the EGR blanking plate for my 2.2 Direct's Z22YH engine and they told me it's £38.94!!! My mate got one a couple of months back for his Z22SE and it was only about 4 quid!!! It's just a dod of steel with 2 holes in it!!
    Are Vauxhall now just cashing in now that car owners have twigged that we can bypass the EGR???

    Bonkers if you ask me.

    It's a totally different thing mate as the yh egr is water cooled. There is a cheap method though that involves a coke can.

    Are you wanting to get round a broken egr or blanking it to protect the manifold/solve running problems? If it's the latter then the other method I mentioned could be right up your street as it blanks the egr system without even going anywhere near the egr.

    I'll post a picture when im on the pc rarther thatn phone.

    You can make a plate and sandwich in in between the head and the EGR outlet pipe here mate.



    Its pipe #1 that your blanking in this pic to the manifold.



    If the EGR is broken however its a little more complicated and the GM part would be needed.

    Well! Now that you ask! The car's not been running very well for quite some time now. I have this intermittent - all of a sudden it'll start running on 3 cylinders and the only way to get it back on all 4 is to turn off the engine and turn it back on again. There's no set pattern to this. It's random. And the idle is very rough. I had it at my wee local garage and they've replaced the coil pack twice (Diagnostics said "misfire, cylinder 1") but it's still not right. I also had to replace the hp fuel pump less than 2 yrs ago and got the regulator replaced under warranty a 3 months ago. i want to blank off the EGR as it seems it's not really necessary and allows all sorts of gunk into the inlet, which is not exactly ideal. My mate blanked his EGR off on his Vec B 2.2SE engine and it runs much smoother than before and the flat spot's far less noticeable around 2K revs.. I now suspect that perhaps the EGR has allowed so much muck in it may have clogged the swirl valves... ?? What do you think?? So for me, I'd like to get the manifold off, clean it, and blank off the EGR. Oh yes - my engine light's been on for months.... Oh joy... :-)
    The car's now done 83K miles and I've had it since 1 yr old with 16K... Davie
