    Default EGR blanking how-to??

    Howdy

    I have both poor acceleration before 2000rpm and bucking acceleration- found this was most likely due to egr. I was promptly advised to blank the egr. I understand the concept of blanking it but i have no idea how exactly to do it.

    Ive searched through almost every post/thread this site has to offer and become increasingly frustrated with how everyone has been able to do it but i have no idea!!!

    I am basically a complete engine novice, but keen to learn. If someone has the time and pictures a how-to for an idiot would be hugely appreciated. however, if i somehow managed to miss a how-to on this forum please direct me in the right direction. And apologies if this has been asked a thousand times.

    Thanks guys n my car is the 1.9cdti sri.
    Cheers

    If you are wanting to blank asuuming it's a 150 you have, buy two oval gaskets and a square gasket from Vauxhall. You can't get the blanking plate from Vx but you can get it here:

    then follow this how2:

    When you come to replacing the valve, fit the square on the manifold side of the EGR valve and sandwich the blanking plate between the two oval gaskets on the oval exhaust side, and refit the EGR valve with these all in place.

    No probs m8. Just make sure you change the vauxhall gaskets otherwise you will have dangerous fumes entering your car.
