    Default Calling all 2.0/2.2 DTI owners with silicone pipes!

    Guys,

    I want to do a bit of preventative maintenance on my car as im certain there a problem somewhere but im struggling to find it (have a read here).

    The one that I have my doubts about is the BIG PIPE that goes to the EGR / Intake area and is situated at the front of the engine.

    Im thinking of changing this for a silicone one but need some help as to which one I need an where I can get it from. All the smaller vac pipes look OK and I have checked the ends of all of them.

    My car is a 2.01 DTI.

    Thanks.


    Bye bye Vec B

    Regardless what ya vac hoses look like change them. 3mm internal bore 3m long is enough to do the job. Remove and clean egr throughly. Remove and clean boost sensor with brake/carb cleaner only! All these are cheap to do and sorted all my random lights on dash and now drives better. If u have a split intercooler hose or suspect it is it will be obvious by loud hiss noise on boost and a split in the hose if you remove and inspect it

    When you change the 2 large intercooler hoses, are they part of the radiator system? What im asking is, will you loose coolant when you remove the pipes?

    Its ok, found my answer in the search bar. My car went into limp mode 3 times the other day pulling the caravan back home.

    It was only when i floored the pedal from 50mph to 60mph that it went to limp mode. Happened 3 times.

    So guessing i may have a split in my intercooler pipes somewhere.

    Mileage is 115k so probably need changing.
