egr cooler

  1. Engine & Gearbox
    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.

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...

    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 Ā£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 - Ā£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...
