2.0 JTDM EGR cleaning
It's a while since I've posted on here. I've been searching the interweb for some information on how I might clean or maybe even replace the EGR on my 2.0 diesel Ti but without luck, surely someone must know? I'm handy with the spanners but would at least like to have a starting point.
I have the problem of owning, in my opinion, a beautiful car that is spoiled by the poor fuel consumption and being completely gutless in 1st gear to the point that you have to drive around it (both issues of which seem to be well documented for this model/engine combo).
I can put up with the mpg but now that I'm in the zone for a car change and there is no replacement on offer from Alfa I need to add some zing to the car before I end up changing marques.
I don't want to explore the remap option until I have ruled out basics like the EGR (I found the MAP and cleaned that up). I have had the car into my local dealer on three occasions complaining about the performance but, with no disrespect to the dealer, I just get the usual DPF regen/no faults story. Interestingly the last time it was in I had a 2.0 jtdm Giulietta courtesy car which drove very nicely in 'D' mode (I know I'm comparing apples and pears).
Anyway, I'm waffling. Any advice on the EGR appreciated or if anyone is in the North East with the same car I would be interested in making a performance comparison.
