Re: EGR Valve replacement MK3 Panda 1.3d multi jet

Find a good remapper, and have it deleted from the ECU.
Less expensive than a new valve, and much more healthier for your engine.
(just be carefull, there are secret Greenpeace agents around here....)

Kind of agree, as it's fundamentally flawed technology, but the MoT gets tougher from April or May this year and missing EGRs on DPFs of diesels will warrant a fail under the new regime.

But since it's not missing, but just not functioning by deleting it from the ECU, how will they ever know...??
Exhaust gas will be a lot cleaner without the EGR working...!!

I have a non functioning EGR on my Alfa GT jtd, with the EGR working, accelerating was a shame most of the times, heavy, thick black smoke behind me, MOT was a pain to get trough.
Now, with deleted EGR, (both software and hardware) smoke is almost not present, even when pressed hard ( what Alfa's are made for anyway...) and MOT is plain easy...!!
(And I only use premium fuell, BP Ultimate Diesel).

... which entirely proves why it's flawed tech - excellent good news story.

Re: EGR Valve replacement MK3 Panda 1.3d multi jet

Defeating the EGR either physically or by software is illegal in the UK (and most other developed countries) makes the car illegal to use on the road and almost certainly invalidates your insurance. It might not be picked up at MOT time but it's still illegal.
The best solution is to clean or replace the EGR valve and fit a restrictor / swirl plate when re-fitting it.

The restrictor plate is a placebo modification, totally useless.
