156 JTD - please help ID these components !
Hi all, I,ve had a few problems with my car recently and thanks to the overwhelming help from you guys I think I've narrowed it down to 2 things.
I have a 136bhp 99-V car.
1. People tell me the VNT controller is on the 'slam panel' Mine isn't - i have what appears to be a vacuum accuator on the top/rear of the turbo. It is connected by a thin vacuum/pressure pipe from the boosted side of the turbo. I can't make it move with a lever so i think it's seized.
Please confirm this is the VNT controller? and that it's probably faulty as i can't move it?
2. My EGR valve (dirty rusty mushroom thing on top of manifold) is connected by another vacuum/pressure pipe which runs over the top of the head to a small grey cyclinder (about the size of a camera film) which has a 2nd pipe connected to a fatter pipe. The cylinder is attached to the bulkhead by 2 bolts and has an electrical connection also.
What is this grey cylinder?
Thanks in advance.
