    Default EGR Question

    Hi All,

    Just a question relating to the EGR valve on my vectra c cdti (150)
    Is it possible to just diconnect the plug from the EGR valve as opposed to blanking it off or does this make the car run like a bag of nails?
    Or is it better blanking it off?
    Where exactly do the exhaust gases go if you either disconnect or blank of the EGR?
    Does it have any long term effects on the engine??

    Apologies for all the questions

    Cheers,
    Gaz

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 66000

    Default

    You can just unplug the EGR and it will still run fine (apart from the spanner light), but if the fault is down to the EGR valve not sealing properly then any running issues would still be evident, blanking is the only way to test for a non-sealing EGR.

    When blanked, the exhaust gasses just carry on down their normal route (out of the exhaust).

    Long term effects, I certainly haven't heard of any on the VX CDTi - alot of people run blanked EGR valves on here
