    Default 2.2 dti EGR

    Ello All,

    I've been having the odd problem now and again with EML coming on when boosting in 5th gear. So....

    Checked the hoses etc all good cleaned the boost sensor and today decided to clean the EGR valve. Wow it was full of carbon also took thr top off the inlet (metal bit the egr plugs into) which again was full of carbon. Cleaned hem both up and the car is now boosting way smoother and better feels all round better. My only problem is that the little plastic thin white pipe which connects to the lever which opens and closes the valve inside the inlet housing now has a split in it. (I must have bent it the wrong way) I have put some duck tape round for the min and have been out and abut upto 70mph with no eml..

    Now my questions are....

    1. What does the valve inside the inlet section (not egr) need to open and close for?

    2. What is the part number for the new section of thin pipe?

    3. Is it an air tube?

    4. Will if affect boosting/driving if the duct tape comes away?

    Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance.

    Steve The thin tubing is part of the vacuum setup , depending on which of the tube,s you have damaged either boost,s or retard,s your vacuum set up . works in the similar way to a carb choke as for replacement just go to dealers and ask for some vacuum tubing and connectors . the vacuum tubing comes in 2 metre length,s

    Thanks bob will pop into the stealers tommorrow ... any idea how much it is... and can you just pull the old one out and push the new one in.. by the way its the vaccum pipe that controls the big black round plastic thing which controls the arm to open and close the valve inside the metal housing which has the boost sensor plugged in.. if that makes sense cheers steve

    I think i paid about £8 for 2 metre length of tube plus 3 elbow connector,s and a length of rubber hose to make the straight connectors from
