Black smoke the moment I accelerate
After having the codes read a while ago due to a lot of black smoke pouring our of the car, today I decided to sort some of them out, nothing major just egr and maf.
First thing I did was remove the egr to check its condition which was in good nick so cant understand why the fault was thrown up, solenoid working fine and at the end of the day the valve is only about 9 months old. Cleaned what I could of the inlet manifold and map which was caked in crap. Popped the egr back on went for a drive.
Absolutely no difference ad power only seems to kick in once 2k is reached and even then the maf flat spots the acceleration at around 3k. Disconnecting the maf makes absolutely no difference so it confirmed for me that the maf is gone aswell. Now I have ordered the new maf and it will be a few days before it gets here. My question regards the egr, have I missed anything apart from what I have listed? Am I supposed to clean the pipes which then go into the turbo?
