Have a 54 plate Cdti 150. Was a little lumpy on tick over so i thought i would give the EGR a good clean after reading posts here.
Took the EGR off and to be honest it wasn't too bad. Put it back with the Fiat gaskets. Also took the opportunity to clean the boost sensor, and spray carb cleaner in through the intake and throttle body..
Whilst doing this i saw the swirl bar had come off so cleaned it, made sure the valves were moving freely and then reattached.
Oh how i wished i had left well alone.
On start up the car pulls like a train, then after about a mile the spanner light comes on and i lose all power. It wont accelerate properly and will not rev over 3000 at all. It isn't missing or juddering, just no power... I have tried taking the egr plug off but this makes no difference at all.
Have had a look at the boost valves and they don't seem perished at all. The swirl valves were all in the open position though before i reattached, and i have checked and they are all working fine when the engine is revved.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance, Steve
