    Default Soot and funny smell

    Hi guys I really need your help

    After unblocking the bung and curing the wet carpet- i started to notice a strange smell, my thoughts were pollen filter contaminated-so went to order one, upon looking under the bonnet i've found there is a lot of soot all over the engine , and the pipes around the area where the egr is are coated with it , any help would be appreciated as rather than breathing in wet filter- it must be carbon monoxide!!

    cheers
    Andy

    Maybe the egr pipe is split? I'm sure I read of someone on here with a similar problem. Would be worth having a check.

    have you noticed any juddering or poor performance? have you had the EGR valve replaced at all?

    WHen does the smell come to notice? and is it in the cab or do you mean when stood next to the car?

    I have a smell in the cab when stationary, its not pretty, think it is because the bar that runs across the outlet manifold (i forget the name of it) is off at one end ( i have since discovered today it is off completely and will all need fixing ) and the smell leaks from there, as a result of it having come off completely, there is soot all over the top of my engine and a shiny liquid looking subtance around the place.

    Any way, could be that or the egr itself.
