EGR is at the back of the engine near the fire wall in the middle and is easily accessible. It looks like a 7cm space ship shaped with a vabcuum ine running to a nipple on the top side of it. Below to its rear is the connection to the exhaust feeder pipe. To gain better access you may have to remove the brake booster vacuum bracket held on with a 10mm nut. Loosen the large exhaust pipe nut and then remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the EGR body in place. THe EGR can often be revived by cleaning thoroughly with carburettor cleaning spray and cloth. Clean out the exhaust tube with a bit of frayed brake cable as a tool to brush out carbon deposits. Also check the Differential pressure feedback (DPFE) exhaust sensor: just follow the vacuum line back from the EGR side arm. The DPFE sensor is ten times more likely to be the source of EGR related problems than the EGR valve itself. Please don't get me wrong, cleaning the EGR valve and ancillaries regularly is no bad thing, just be aware of the DPFE sensor.

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.

How can I sort glow plug light problem on Renault Kangoo 1.5Dci? Initially it extinguishes as it should after a few seconds. It comes on when accelerating, and if accelerating hard, seems to reduce po

Pete, if you get no code from a reader, it only means it is a physical problem and not in the system. You could possibly just have a dirty connection at one or all glow plugs power wires. This wouldn't change the mpg at all. The EGR, if faulty diaphragm, would cause a loss of power, but that's mainly on a gasoline engine. Not sure on diesel unless the EGR is in the center of the air inlet of manifold. I removed my intake on my old Chevy 6.2 diesel and replaced it with an open one from a higher performance 6.2 and it gave it much more power because now there's no air restriction because no EGR is in the intake. This stopped the excessive smoke from exhaust also. That's just MY experience, and I just LOVE diesel.

Kia sportage 2005 diesel. code 0401 keeps coming up after driving 40-80 km (distance) the egr valve has been replaced first time with a bosch unit and then with a kia genuine part but still the same code...

Use a vacuum pump and pull the EGR valve open while monitoring engine RPM's & DPFE voltage. There should be a noticable difference in RPM's with the EGR open
Clean out the EGR valve and/or tubing to remove deposits
Check the voltage at the DPFE, compare to specified values (refer to a repair manual for your specific model)
Replace the DPFE sensor (with a good quality / OEM one)
Replace the EGR valve

The engine malfunction light turn on and brought it to the dealer. said P0406 and needs egr replacement. but the light turns off again and after a week it turns on again for 1 day. now the light is gone....

Sounds like you have a carbon buildup in the valve. The EGR should be located near the altenator on the right side of the engine, depending on what engine you have. 4 bolts, 2 8mm and 2 10mm.. take it off and careful not to lose the metal gaskets.. spray the valve down with carb cleaner and wipe it out.. pump the valve to make sure it plunges ok and replace. should fix your problem. Or you can replace the valve yourself new for about $80.
Here is the procedure if you care to do it yourself.

Tools: 8 mm socket, 10 mm socketEquipment: Replacement EGR Valve, Replacement EGR Gasket (metallic)1. Disconnect the electrical fitting attached to the EGR valve. You will need to unlock it (red tab) and then depress the latch near the rear of the fitting before sliding it off.2. Disconnect the vacuum tube connected to the top of the EGR valve using an 8 mm socket. It may be easier to remove the entire vacuum tube by diconnected it at the top of the engine as well (also 8 mm).3. Using a universal socket joint (I found using a 1/4" drive was necessary to get the clearances around the alternator), remove the 2 bolts holding the EGR valves to the exhaust manifold of the engine using a 10 mm socket. The bottom bolt is a very tight clearance.4. Remove the valve and gasket.5. To install, reverse the steps using the new EGR Valve and EGR Gasket.6. The 10 mm bolts should be torqued to 225 in-lbs7. The 8 mm bolts that fasten the vacuum tube to the EGR valve should be torqued to 100 in-lbs.
Tip: I have found that if you loosen the alternator mounting bolts, you can get just a little more wiggle room to get a socket on the bottom bolt.

Good luck, i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
