i know i shouldnt mollygoogle, i just dont want to strain the car mate.
The last one was horrific ended up putting me off the road for 3-4 weeks and in the taxi game thats a killer, thy tried to map it via the obd and gave me the car back saying it was done when clearly it wasnt as the car would constantly regen, went back and asked what they had done, long and short was they hadnt mapped it at all to start as it needs benched on the siggy think it had antimaps so had to be benched.
They eventually got it mapped was flying but again constant regen, but by then the damage had been done to the turbo and the fact that the fuel had mixed with the oil was bad for the rest of the block, i remember the oil was changed and oil quality percentage was reset to 100, within 10 miles the oil had deteriorated that much the percentage was down to 0, shocking stuff, a car i had bought brand new had to be sold within 2 years for 4k. They did this within the few days they had it.
I know there must be someone up here that can do the job but it really is a chore finding them, its shocking up here.
thanks for the info guys, its just the last saga cost me thousands in loss earnings and the loss of the car too, really was bad, ended up forcing me out of self employment not somit i would ever repeat wife was stressed to the max cause of the divs.
I will be looking into it, am hoping i have caught it in time but the bar being off as you guys have said is the start of a slippery slope, but mines is running great and no errors etc, so will see how it goes.
Forgot to ask, have you guys inserted the 2 blanking plates or just the 1 ?
I had just the one( the oval one coming from the egr cooler) did have one with a hole bit it had issues when I fitted a crd-t to the car as the EGR was goosed, put a solid plate in and all was well, and the clutch on these can take one hell of a beating, my old car was on 85k miles when I traded it in and it was handling 336ft/lb of torque and 205 hp with ease.
As for mappers up here the only decent guys I've heard of are eco tune in glasgow, closest VX specialist is RnD in york who i can thoroughly recommend.
well took the egr off for a clean today as well as the boost sensor, all good, got my copper bases for the swirl flap, and as many times as i replace the original with the plastic locators i just cant seem to get the new modded one to go on
as said, i started out just placing number 3 in place unattached then replaced the bar with the other 3 located in place, lined up and then screwed in the unattached number 3. Boom, job done, all working fine as they should ( for now ).
I've owned the 1.9 CDTi for over a year now, i've had basically everything apart. I had to delete the swirl flaps because they were caked so hard in carbon it's not even a joke. I've yet to delete the EGR valve, but I need it mapped out first so have been waiting to do that. Whilst I was cleaning out the carbon cakes inside the inlet manifold courtesy of the EGR, I have the head off an reseated the valves and cleaned the intake ports.
Don't continue to clean and spend money on inlet manifolds, when you can delete the EGR and not have a single one of these issues. My friend also has the exact same car as me, he blew his gearbox due to the 6th gear issue and 220HP, but he had his EGR deleted for a long time and did many short trips. Intake manifold was as clean as we left it.
Couple of weeks ago I had a problem with my EGR which caused my car to idle very rough. I scanned it and it was the EGR. The car has been running fine since then with no EML after I cleared the codes but wanted to blank it off.
I already have a blanking plate to fit but wanted...

Hey, does anybody know what version 3 does for the daytime running lights in the uec? It seems to do nothing for me. I thought one option would turn the fogs on as drls. But none of them seemed to!
