SOURCE: Need a pic veiw of 2004 ford f350 6.0L diesel EGR

1st of all when Ford started out with putting "EGR's" on those diesel engines, they rushed it and are nothing less than a pain in the ***! i recommend having an EGR cleaning service performed by your local Ford dealer, i know they charge up the wazoo, but they're the best people to perform the service period.this is a VERY common problem with those engines and that service is "supposed" to be performed every 30K I believe. i dont recommend attempting to remove and service it youself, this WILL only make it worse.

SOURCE: Lack of power, exhaust smoke and engine miss

Just an idea but the Ford Mondeo ( european car ) from which I believe your engine
is taken has a habit of splitting a low pressure tube at the back
of the engine this is a relatively
cheap, easy fix. The other symptom this used to throw up was a
little more black smoke from the exhaust and a pacing/ surging from
the engine.

Tip

Intercooler and EGR problem


Sometimes people get this low power and smoke problem in a turbodiesel car with an intercooler. Once it is not your injectors or turbo gone, you can solve it without buying new intercooler or EGR valve. You can actually clean them. It does take few hours of your time but cost you much less. All you need is few hours of time, a gallon (4-5liters) of diesel and same of petrol (better naphta but its hard to get in some places). First you need to take of the intercooler which might involve removing front bumper in some cars. Once you have it out, put it on the ground (do not damage the core) and fill it up with diesel. Cover the inlet and outlet (best with balloons) and leave it for few hours. Meantime you can take care of the EGR valve and inlet manifold. Using petrol and soft brush clean all visible parts but do not fill EGR with petrol too much as it must be complete dry before you put it back. Do same with the inlet manifold, just clean that oil/smoke build up. It is slagish but getting rid of it will add your engine extra kW/Bhp and some life to it. When you finish cleaning and drying the EGR and manifold your intercooler should have been a little "washed" by the diesel inside, shake it a little bit, the "balloons" should stop the diesel from spilling out, and leave it for 2-3 hours. After that time empty the diesel out of it and fill it with petrol (naphta) to wash out remainings of dirt and diesel, do it couple of times while shaking until the liquid is more cleaner, than dry the inner of the intercooler, make sure it is completely dry and as clean as possible as anything that will be wet with diesel may cause some serious problem. After drying and putting everything back, leave it for a while before starting the engine, this is to make sure that whatever remained undry will vapourize. Remember when you start the engine do not rev it up just leave it at idle for 10-20 minutes. This will add temperature that will dry up anything you've missed and not cause any damage as there will be not enough pressure. After this operation you will notice a change in the car's performance.

I found 3 sources, Supaprice.Co.UK, Ebay/UK and Amazon/UK for an initial search.

Just go to your Browser and type "2008 Ford Focus 1.6L diesel egr valve" or add UK to the field and run a search. There were more than the 3 results I mentioned

You may have success by looking up the Toll free numbers of Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance autoparts and ordering Internationally.

I hope my solution is helpful, please rate.

Where is the EGR valve on a mazda protege 5


I own a 2002 Mazda Protege5 with the FS2.0 Motor. The EGR Valve is located below the throttle-body. You must take off the Intake tube to get a good view of it. To replace it I think you might have to take off the throttle-body, but I'm not sure about that...(yet)


NOTE: Mazda put out a technical note stating that "if your car has sat for a long time, the egr valve could be damaged by moisture (rain) and will need to be replaced". My 2002 Protege sat for 3 weeks and the rain caused this exact issue and had to be replaced. How did I know? The engine light came on (after never coming on) and the car had an extremely rough idle. Total cost was ~$400 (ouch).

I have a mazda 6 2 litre diesel eating oil, what


Mazda say that if your Mazda 6 consumues less than a litre every 900 miles then it within tolerance.
However these cars have a complicated induction mechanism controld by lots of diffrent vacume pots that are inturn controlled by servos, when any one of these becomes faulty the pressure balance between the exhaust side of the turbo and the inlet side becomes inbalanced, resulting in oil being forced through the turbos bearings. Its that simple lol!
The first thing I would check would be the swirl control valve, In the inlet manifold, This gets fouled up by the exhaust gases getting recycled by the egr valve(exhaust gas recycler)
Sooty deposits mix with oil coming from your turbo and jam it closed restricting the amount of air into the engine, and reducing power as well as creating black smoke from your exhaust.
So my advice would be to get your egr valve proffetionally blanked off, and have your induction system checked over.
Hope this helps as I am sure this is a very common problem!

93 MX6 throttle body is Popping, loud,sounds like a diesel


Sounds like the pipe/connection from the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve that is located at or near the throttle body has a leak. That would make a loud popping noise.
