    Default Service diy

    Hi guys..
    I want to clean my EGR, change gaskets aso. I also cleaned the boost sensor (at least I think that was what I cleaned).. Anything else I could do while I'm at it? Clean the throttle body, overlook the vacuum hoses.. Anything else?

    There's a How2 for using it.

    I've used it and it made a difference.

    Just make sure you take particular notice of the part that says to "Spray it AFTER the MAF sensor" as you'll more than likely kill your MAF sensor if you spray it BEFORE.

    Or you could get some Wynns EGR cleaner (similar to the 10k decoke). Its on ebay for about £10 bundled with some Diesel Injector cleaner.

    To use take the big hose off the throttle, start the engine, maintain revs at 1500/2000rpm and spray straight into throttle body in short bursts until the can is empty (might need an extra pair of feet).

    Then as a bonus use the injector cleaner next time you fill up :-)
