    Egr cleaning?

    Hi, has anyone got any advice on the best way to clean out your egr? I know how to remove etc.. but best way/items to use to clean it, only recently bought this car but it was an old guys and there's quite alot of residue surrounding the egr itself before i even take it apart, I'm guessing he never give it the beans or if he did it was little and often. Thanks

    Inevitable if you are daft enough to buy a Diesel... Anyway, we soak the parts in truck wash, King Red do a wicked one that used neat can dissolve bodies, very useful with awkward customers.... Take care though as it hurts and if it gets in your eyes makes you scream, if you leave bare ally parts in too long, they will dissolve, when you see the ally foaming in the goo, take out and rinse. I left a TDI inlet manifold soaking overnight, next day I had to get it skimmed to restore the gasket face!

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    My first ever egr cherry pop happened with the S14 ( petrol turbo ) , light throttle saw slight kangarooing .

    Let's just say a small bolt sorted it and so my view of the egr began..

    As your car spec says 05 plate Touran TDI?

    Which size TDI is fitted 1.6, 1.9 or 2.0?
