  3. Limp Mode after EGR Clean - T5 2008 1.9 (84bhp)

    Engine & Gearbox
    I did an EGR clean yesterday - first time I've done it and it needed it (though I've seen a lot worse..). After replacing it, it's not revving above 3,000 revs. I can only assume either the EGR is completely shot or I've, inadvertently, dislodged a connector or something? I've not got any...
  4. EGR Cooler Identification

    Technical Threads
    I have recently replaced my T4 with a 2012 T5 Sportline. How do you find out what version of the EGR Cooler is fitted to the van. From research it should be fitted with version D, but many of the items under the bonnet have stickers showing 2011's date. Can it be seen on the unit or do I need...
  5. T5.1 EGR Issues

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all, I’m a relative newbie to the T5(.1) club having recently purchased an ex-RAC T5.1 140 with 128k on the clock. The engine light came on the other day so I scanned it and it’s showing an EGR fault – insufficient flow. I suspect it’s just full of carbon and in need of a good clean. Can...

  7. Can anyone name this engine part?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi guys, This little nipple thing is broken on my van and I think air is escaping, causing a slightly annoying hissing sound on acceleration (it seems to lessen when I push the nipple back on). Does anyone know what it's called, or even better, have a link to where I can buy a replacement? Or...

    Engine & Gearbox
    Ready to head off on holiday in my 2011 T5 this week and engine management light starts blinking. Took it into the garage this morning and they said EGR needs replaced and parts plus fitting will be around the £600 mark. Any other owners experience of this? Would be nice to find a way to get...

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hello folks This week I had to get the EGR valve replaced on my 2012 Sportline. I had to get it replaced under warranty at just under 10,500 miles but my warranty ran out in April this year and it went again with only 28,000 miles on the clock. So including the one that was in it from the...

  16. EGR pipe failed again after one week!

    General T5 Chat
    I recently had to have my EGR pipe replaced as it fractured on the corrugated part. Various people told me to just blank it off (which the AA did temporarily anyway) but Pendle who just remappped it (thanks to Autocare in Poole) suggested running with a pipe so I had a new one fitted. A week...

  18. EGR disaster

    Engine & Gearbox
    The other day I got an EGR blanking plate, and was soon out fitting it. Then I saw it had already been done. Damnit- no improvements to be made there then. But I thought maybe I could remove the EGR pipe entirely at some point and use the new plate to blank off the exhaust manifold end. Later...
