Another happy punter who wouldn't have dared take this on without your guide. Thanks to your guide I didn't lose any gaskets or bolts, but I did find hanging off a clip, a brand new O ring which must've been dropped by a previous fettler. I had the battery out and water reservoir off, just made it easier to get to the heat shield bolts.
I, like folk earlier, had oil coating things under the throttle body, I couldn''t see where it was coming from, nothing seemed loose. Considering I had a new EGR valve at Xmas, it was a tad hokey cokey, but the inlet manifold was (illegibly) cleaned out when the cambelts were done at Xmas and now it looks akin to Pablo Escobar's retirement fund in there. That's not so many miles ago, pretty scary how quickly it clogs up:- dirty bar stewards these diesels.
. prepare to be frustrated when you can see inside the inlet manifold and can't do a lot about the build up.
-if you want to become blind, spray Wynns EGR3 into the EGR valve whilst looking into the outlet of the valve ( i was about 14" away actually, but still got a Wynns facial.
-put a sign up saying, 'not broken down, just doing preventative maintenance and enjoying it, you____' (s).
-anyone who thinks Wynns EGR3 would actually clean the intake manifold out is as naive as me.
-if you're half bald, put suncream on your head
-ponder the lunacy of why you're stopping for a fag break when you're spending your free time cleaning your car's arteries and you haven't quite made time to have that crown that's been in your wallet for the last 6 months refitted by the dentist.
