    Default finally cleaned

    hi guys i finally got round to cleaning my egr valve today, and im glad i did, the valve looked like it had never been cleaned before ive never seen so much soot and crap before here's a few pics of how it looked when i removed it.and a few of when i cleaned it up. its not the best but i can feel a difference in response already. All i need to do now is clean the boost sensor.
    sorry about the pics i aint no photographer

    Dude, thats nothing. I did mine soon after buying the car and there were lumps of carbon dropping out of it the size of grapes. There was a hole in the centre of the soot about the size of a 1p piece. the rest was blocked.

    When I put it back together OMG!!

    I didn't clean the rest of the manifold up very well though when I put it back together, but I have just had to fit a brand new EGR valve and I noticed the rest of the manifold has cleaned up nicely on it's own. With the new EGR valve the car performs still better than when I cleaned it and I am so happy it almost justifies the expense. :-)

    Paul,
    I would highly recommend cleaning your EGR valve, it is well worth it. As far as I am concerned it should be a service item. It's very easy to do.
