    Default Eggggrrrrrr... ggrrrrr!

    I'm annoyed because I was worried about reliability problems with my 12 year old Escort RS2000. That's why I bought a newer car so that I didn't have to worry about it and could use it for work trips etc... truth of the matter is, the RS never actually broke down on me during about 5 years of ownership.

    So I defected from Ford and have had my Veccy SRi for just under 3 months and done about 4,000 happy miles... I've really enjoyed the drive, comfort, performance, looks, styling, economy... but now it looks like I've been stung by the EGR problem. As per my post in the technical support section, no power and the car has gone into limp home mode with spanner light on.

    Anyway, have read through some EGR related posts on the forum and I've decided I'm going to have a go at removing and cleaning the EGR valve tomorrow morning early instead of sending it to the stealers. Thanks to the pics and very useful info I might even be up and running in time to get to work for 10! Here's hoping!

    Yep, agree with that. Certainly worth applying a bit of pressure on them. Be assertive, yet polite. You never know.
