i've done pleanty of searching and i have sort of mapped out what the egr system is in my mind but i'm a little bit lost due to a couple of reasons
the last car i saw an egr on was a petrol one but i'd have thought the principle and parts would be of similar looks and i saw one similar to this on it
as well as one like this (the brassy looking round thing on the right) -
does the diesel not have this?
this is my exact problem down to the letter and this is great the problem is solved etc, however, i'm not really down for cleaning it up or replacing it as it seems to be a waste of time and £5's worth of carb cleaner / petrol
so my question is how would i be able to completely remove the egr system? will this cause any short - medium term damage keeping in mind the engine is only on 130k
also there is this that seems to be part of the egr system but i'm not entirely sure
and can i remove this? i wouldn't want to just leave it plugged up or in the open air as that would (i'd imagine) be as bad as having a blocked egr valve?
i'm also aiming for the eml to be off but i have a feeling unless i take the bulb out this isn't going to happen lol
if anyone can give me 100% accurate info i'd really appreciate it
also if i have borrowed your picture and you're not pleased i'm really sorry and i will remove the link if this is your wish
