Default Voyager 2.5 CRD 2003 - EGR valve cleaning

Hi All
I am thinking of cleaning the egr valve on my wife's voyager over Christmas (already planning what to do with this time off). She does a lot of around town driving,so I guess it may need doing.
Could somebody tell me where I would find it,if it is easily accessible and if anybody has a picture,that would be a big help?
Many thanks

Merry Christmas
John

Default EGR Clean

Hi John,
Not got answer here for you but quite interested in your thread as a bunged up EGR valve can cause problems and possible shutdowns when you don't want it. May do mine SAP if I find where it is as I'm not complacent with these engines.
I got a Chrysler Service Manual disc off E-Bay that was cheep and it even gives all the fault codes. Using it for suspension work just now.

Hmmm: That all seems very different from my 2007 2.8CRD. If you do not have a problem I would simply use a tin of Wynns Diesel EGR3 cleaner - you spray it into the air inlet after the air mass sensor with the engine running...

you will probably get the MIL lit, but try it, see and report back to us.

In my opinion blocking the EGR does no harm to the engine, other than confuse the ECU slightly.
Rather than blocking you are better off having the EGR remapped in the ECU so that it is never open and the rest of the airflow maps modified to account for the reduction in air flow. However this will cost a lot more than fashioning a blanking plate out of biscuit tin lid

Regards

Richard

Default EGR Clean out.

Hi, would be interested to know how JohnDavis got on, as its like the Thermostat renewal, its said to be a two and half hour job as you have to remove wiper motor and tray...
Was going to renew my Thermostat and got one from my Motorfactors. Yes First Line parts company has this engine using a normal thermostat under number 174.80. Showed him picture of right Chrysler unit and after checking out picture comparison he said it was made in Russia. Latvia to us, as we have been told on here.
