    Default CDTI 150 - Serviced so now what?

    Have very limited knowledge of this engine, going to get various cleaning products for sensors and connectors etc, just for piece if mind...

    So where to start, EGR is blanked so shouldn't need a clean, boost solenoid pipes are new, 3rd injector connector already replaced so...

    What else could do with doing? and there location, pics if poss please


    Also what fuel additives are best for cleaning etc? Might even try some 2 stroke after...

    Forte, works very well. I put the additive in at quarter tank rather than full tank to give a good clean out.

    The EGR has been blanked for virtually the whole time since the manifold was replaced (unless the blank was removed of course).

    Fuel filter is a good thing to replace and often gets overlooked.

    It always used to have Millers Diesel Power Sport 4 in the tank which did make a difference, be worth using that IMO.

    Yes should still be blanked, although the spanner light no longer stays lit so will have to check...

    Did you add both? And did one you fit have the holes or not?

    Remember finding a plate in the seat pockets, I gave it away as thought spare, just text Josh now to make sure he didn't remove it...

    I did have a eBay one that I gave him when I sold it to him, it was probably that one.

    It just had the manifold one with no holes.

    Oh good... panicked then, hopefully its the spare I found (no holes) in the car I gave away then lol...

    But no constant light on has got me thinking, spanner light comes on then off once started, but the last MOT might have made him remove it maybe...

    Yeah, with the work its had done recently, wouldn't surprise me if they have removed it. You should be able to check by looking around the seal of the EGR and manifold, the plate should be noticeable.
