  1. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi Everyone. I've recently purchased a 2015 Transporter which was converted to a campervan. It's the Biturbo 180bhp DSG version with 97000 miles on the clock. The EGR engine management light has come on and I can see that it currently has the dreaded 'C' cooler so I'd like to have it replaced...
  2. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi All, I want to bypass the EGR cooler on my 1.9 BRS, to see if it's leaking internally. I don't want to fit a 'delete' kit just yet. Am I right in thinking that if I remove the multiplug from the EGR it will stop working ? (I know I'll get a dash lamp, not bothered about that at the moment)...
  3. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    So, have removed the coolant in and outflow hoses from the EGR Cooler and joined them to bypass the system. Started the engine and there are exhaust gases escaping from the hose inlet & outlet points on top of the cooler. Obviously EGR Has failed and exhaust gases and coolant is mixing which...

    Hi Just wondering if VW ever sorted the egr cooler issue. I understand that if it has the suffix D then it should be ok. My van is one of the last T5.1, (November 2014) the egr cooler has the suffix A and was manufactured 2 months before the van was assembled. If they knew there was a problem 4...

    HI, I think the EGR cooler on my T5 2007 2.5 is staying closed. I remember a couple years or so back, I had to replace the N75 valve that is connected to the EGR cooler. When I did this, I'd start the engine and after 30 seconds or so the cooler arm would be pulled open by the vacuum tube. Now...
  6. Engine & Gearbox
    Hello All, I started to notice a slight whiff of fumes in the cab when stationary, obviously the smell is much stronger under the bonnet. I've already done quite a bit of digging around concerning fumes and ordinarily would go straight to the exhaust manifold gasket / turbo manifold gasket but...
  7. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi All, I have been having a lot of trouble with my van lately and I'm chasing down an underboost problem. The vacuum operated valve on the EGR cooler seems to be broken, I can't pull a vacuum against it at all and it doesn't want to move by hand. The rod is currently fully over to the right...
  8. Engine & Gearbox
    I have had a mystery coolant loss on my van since I bought it a few weeks ago, it is under warranty and I have been using my regular garage to try and diagnose it. I drove to Cornwall (200 miles away) and after the drive once the van had cooled down it struggled to start again and hydrolocked a...

    Hi All, Just to let you know that yesterday while filling up washer tank I noticed that expansion tank went from white to black! Opned it up and foung oil in it! :* Went to dealer who diagnosed a broken exchanger, that is inside the Egr block that is not sold separately, so new Egr and new...

    As above had the dreaded warning lights come on and my mechanic, who I think I can trust, has said it will need a new EGR Cooler assy at around £500 plus labour. Apparently VW are aware of the issue and as such the replacement part is a different spec and will require recoding. The van is 4...

    EGR Cooler Assembly - £1,500 to replace Hi, I'm also new to the forum, and also with an EGR issue on a recently out-of-warranty 2009 low mileage (40K) BiTDi Caravelle. Engine light came on soon after the 40K longlife service, the car is not in limp-mode and is driveable. VW service centre...
