    Default 2.2 DTI EGR system/Inlet manifold, A bit of a clean today.

    As the title suggests, I gave the EGR system a bit of a clean today as it was getting all gunged up with soot.
    I took a few pictures along the way.

    Pretty gunked up mate! Did you not take off the Lower manifold?

    Did you bleed the fuel line okay? That was the scariest bit for me.

    You'll notice an improvement in accleration now!

    Aye mate I cleaned the lot, I took everything to bits. It was really badly gunged up. As for the bleeding side of things, I just left the top part of the four fuel pipes slack and turned the engine over until I could see fuel coming out of them, then it was just a case of tightening them up. I turned the engine over again and she fired up. Happy days


    The reason I decided to give the lot a good clean was I kept getting a slight hesitation every now and then, it was very intermittent though. The car was running fine apart from that!

    Iíve had her out for run and seem a little more responsive. Only time will tell to see if it has cured the slight hesitation.

    What method did you go with for bleeding mate???

    I agree, you do get a satisfaction knowing it has been done right.

    LOL Yeah mate. Before the swarfega if you have any clean oil, Hydraulic or engine oil. Rub some on your hands with a washing motion. It gets the thick off then finish with the swafega. Your hands will be nice and clean.
    something I picked up over the years as an engineer.

    I had a hesitation and it cured that. It took a few days before I really noticed the difference. It seemed to get better and better over the days.

    I bled it as in the how2. Did up nuts 3 and 4 fully and 1 and 2 loose. When the fuel came out I tightened up no 2 then cranked again and when fuel came out did no 1 up.

    Cheers Innes, She's running like a dream now.
    I just left all four slack, when the fuel came through I just nipped them all up. same sort of method just a little more rough around the edges lol. It worked all the same though.

    ah.. hesitation... i think im getting the same..

    if i boot it in first and then go into second, i dont get instant power?.. it sort of comes on about a second later then shoots off?..... its like the turbo has stopped dead and has to spool right up again and its slow.

    is that what you'v been getting??

    i do know that my intake is pretty gummed up and could do with a strip n clean like.

    al.

    Yes that's what I was getting. It's still slightly there but when it kicks in it seems to come in alot quicker and harder.

    yeah i seem to be waiting for power in second and third when booting it..

    i suppoose if the intake is restricted, its going to take time for full boost to appear.

    to be honest, i dont fancy doing it, well not exactly fancy.... more like cant be arsed hahaha
