Hello
Yeah I am still here and struggle with my van problem Bec I need it for my work so I am bit confuse which went wrong is either is MAF or fuel regulator so I am not spend more money on this cos xmas is coming so far I hv spend is Egr valve and brand new battery as well.
All I have problem is no revs when start up...have to keep going less than 20 mins before fire up but when I drive for 45 mins later then pop to shop then back to van and again try start for 20 mins alter fire up ..I can't keep doing it all the time.I not sure if it is mass air meter? Mass air filter? Then now no revs while engine is running for ten mins then revs went up to 4,000 rpm no more from then....but while I drive and suddenly lose power while drive (very slow move) thank god I just nearly arrive at home while very very slow with low revs under 2,000 rpmI feel like I want pull my hair lol

First you need to get hooked up to scan tool and check for malfunction codes. Can you do this and get me the codes.

Hello code say no codes from my van so I guess I might buy op com diagnostic tools??
UK Auto Mechanic: Greg, Shop Owner replied 4 months ago
Sadly a code reader will not read manufacture codes only generic codes .
With top level diagnostic scan tool you can check the glow plug system .
If you have just one failed glow plug can cause a hard start issue just like you are having ..

UK Auto Mechanic: Greg, Shop Owner replied 4 months ago
Ok good now when engine is cold hook up a test light to the glow plug circuit and switch on the ignition, test light should light up for 8 to 15 seconds .
Do this let me know if bad may not light up or only for one to two seconds.

Hello
I got fault code is
P0400 ( exhaust gas recirculating circuit low input)

UK Auto Mechanic: Greg, Shop Owner replied 4 months ago
Ok blank off the EGR valve this is stuck open and causing you a fuel air mix issue .
Check on eBay and look for a EGR blanking plate for your model .
This a typical issue . If you have a problem finding this let me know and I will find it for you.
