MIKE :

Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

Customer:

hello

MIKE :

Hello and Welcome... can I just ask, who / what sort of garage has been working on the van for you ..doing the diagnostic tests etc ?

Customer:

mine independant garage have been using snap on solus pro plugged in egr fault came up put new one on van seemed ok

Customer:

but soon after customer returned and fault code stays on wont go out at all

MIKE :

I get you .. has the manifold etc - where it fits - been all removed and thoroughly cleaned through?

Customer:

no i did wonder if the egr pipe may be restricted as it says on the fault code ger port restricted !but removeing egr pipe looks clear

MIKE :

ok yes - well, the definition for that code is - "restriction of flow" - -so its not neceserrily a faulty egr ( though can be ) but if the valve is ok, or new - its 9/10 down to a clogging / restriction in the manifold etc.

MIKE :

Im afraid its a a removal job to do it properely. The only other worth a mention is a software update on the Ecu - some needed this to cure these issues... you would have to check on with the local dealer - giving them the vans VIN for them to check if thats needed on that one.

Customer:

do yuo think that if the egr was faullty for as period of time this may cause a build up of carbon in pipe/manifold port ?

MIKE :

Yes it can do this as system is not / was not working as efficiently as it should ..but often its the other way round !

Customer:

ok thanks i will check all pipework and then book in for software update
