    Hi Guys
    I need help with EGR on my 08 Puma
    Engine is fords 2.4TDi
    I have replaced EGR twice in 3 years with less than 20k Klm intervals and the warning lamp is on again
    The diagnostics advise EGR emissions are the issue
    Surely the interval must be greater
    No performance issues with the engine
    Could something else be triggering the warning system
    Should a fuel additive be used to assist burning carbon deposits

    Some light reading to help you. Have you got the diagnostic trouble codes? Have you checked the MAP sensor is clean, an easy check. Don't clean it with any kind of solvent especially not brake cleaner as it ruins them.

    Hi W
    Will ask my man to check codes and MAP sensor
    But would this issue repeat at 15k intervals ?
    The machine only had occasional motorway blasts but does have 3/4 days weekly regular 100kph of 20 Klm runs.
    I also wonders if lying up during Covid lockdown contributed?
    Thanks again

    Make sure he writes down and gives you the fault codes. Can't help you with your questions as I have not experienced the problem. I would research EGR deletion / bypass, find out what is involved and how to adjust the ECM. and also how it might affect the MOT test. Might be the way to go?

    emissions can be affected by a turbo actuator playing up or the vanes seizing/stiffening

    Wouldn't that affect performance too? OP says no performance issues.
