PostSubject: Instructions for CLEANING the EGR valve    Wed Feb 27, 2013 1:04 pm

I thought I would add this because although this one applies to a Pajero the principle is the same.

Instructions for CLEANING the EGR valve


1- Remove (intercooler) & (air filter + its hose) out of the way (size 10 bolts)
2- Remove hoses you see around the EGR valve out of the way (be gentle!)
3- Cover the exposed pipes with a rag to prevent dirt getting in
4- Unbolt the FOUR bolts holding the EGR valve (size 12)... The 2 bottom bolts are pain in the ass .... but be patient!
5- Remove the 2 original seal gaskets (or blocking plates if applicable!) and clean + KEEP!
6- Wipe clean the gunge and sh*t you find... even if you use a rag, your hands may change colour!! Washing up liquid will sort this out!
7- Wipe clean as much gunge as you can of the EGR valve BEFORE soaking it !!! I used a rag with the help of a screw driver!
8- Soak the EGR valve in Kerosine (You could use Diesel if you want!)
9- Stop for a cigarette and hot cup of Earl Gray
*****
10- While EGR valve soaking... I prepared the blocking plate, and adjusted the fuel pump UP!!....
******

11- One to two hours later remove the soaked EGR and wipe it clean (you can leave it overnight if you wish... but cleaning as much dirt of the valve BEFORE soaking helped speeding the process!
12- Fit back the EGR valve in place & Blocking plate (if you're blocking the valve).
13- Fit back the other parts (hoses, air filter & intercooler)
14- If you adjusted the fuel pump, do not forget to set the governer & adjust down the idle speed (revs to 800 rpm!)
15- Clean your hands, before the wife gives you the agro
