    Default Wynn's EGR3 on a CDTI 150

    Chaps,

    Thought I would let you know how I went with the above on my CDTI 150 over the weekend.

    Firstly this is the prduct:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wynns-Egr3...item33692f92c0

    (I wont go into what it does etc etc )

    Anyway - looking at the application there are basically two areas in the CDTI that you can insert this stuff.

    1) Application for cleaning the Air intake system as a whole - you need to spray the stuff into the flex pipe directly after the MAF sensor by the airbox. So follow the pipe coming out of the air box - this goes straight into the MAF sensor. Directly after the MAF , undo the jubilee clip and move the flexi pipe away so you have a pipe to spray the stuff down.. DO NOT spray this through the MAF..

    2) Application for soley cleaning the Inlet itself - on the CDTI (150) you need to remove the beauty cover and loosen the jubilee clip on the boost pipe that goes straight into the inlet. Then the other end of that pipe - loosen the jubilee clup that holds the pipe to the outlet of the intercooler and remove end. Twist the pipe upwards to you have a hole to spray the stuff down the pipe. Tighten the inlet end of that pipe once moved up so it doesnt fall off.

    They are the two areas.. I used the application for direct cleaning of the inlet etc due to the inlet sooting up being a issue on these and my inlet being relativly new - so wanting to keep it that way.

    So - once you have the pipe off (in either applicaton 1 or 2 above) you need to apply the stuff as follows:

    Car at normal running temp
    Have a helper in the cabin of the car
    Get them to start the car (it will run very 'odd' due to pipe being removed)
    Get them to raise the revs to 2000 rpm
    When at a steady 2K - spray the EGR3 into the pipe you have split in a 2 - 3 second burst.. The Revs WILL fluctuate so prepair your helper to back off or on to try and keep the revs at approx 2k
    After the 2 - 3 second burst let the car steady at 2k rpm again
    Repeat process until can is empty

    Once empty - turn car off , re-fit the air pipe and start car and give a nice bootful of revs...

    Take the car for a 2 - 3 mile drive.

    Expect it to be very smelly and smokey out the exhaust as this stuff is applied and for the immediate drive after.

    Result:
    The result for me was quite impressive.
    The Idle is now VERY smooth, pickup is much improved (and remember my inlet is only 15k old) and general running is a lot smoother.
    Even the missus commented on how nice the car is driving this morning.


    So - all in all for £9 and a few mins to apply it - a job well worth it..
    Ill be doing this every 10K service now - and hopefully will prolong the life of inlet and compoments.

    (I also did the same on my 2.2 DTi (well 2.2 TiD actually as I have it in Saab form ))

    Hope that proves helpful

    Yh mate - took it off to see what it was all like when I serviced it week before last. All reasonable. Not caked up - but black...

    Very impressed with the result after using this stuff tho. Both cars run so much happier after using this.

    Default

    I used the same stuff to clean my inlet.

    Sprayed in directly into the inlet after first removing the same pipe as you.

    I did remove and clean the EGR first.

    Can't say I noticed much difference, although it did seem to run a little smoother for a while.

    I did this with the Halfords 10k boost about a year ago, got rid of loads of muck at the time. Me thinks its due again and this seems like a cheaper alternative. Might buy one for my DTI and dads CDTI.

    Well worth it mate.. Used it in my 2.2 DTI unit (in the Saab) spraying direct into the inlet, made it very clean and it cleans the boost sensor lovely as thats just in the inlet too...
