Re: EGR VALVE FIX

Yea I don't think I have these vacuum hoses on mine. Mine's a DW8 rather than the DW8B. Your 306 has the black rather than green EGR block.

Re: EGR VALVE FIX

Well, think yourselves lucky if you have no EGR throttle valve as it's the one that causes most of the trouble and you have one less pipe to blank off lol

Re: EGR VALVE FIX

Thanks Griffin for you great advice

I'd been getting a misfire it was fine starting up and for the first few minutes of driving but then it would begin stuttering when lightly touching the accelerator. When pushed accelerator hard or accelerating away it was fine .

I disconnected the EGR valve as you described and it now runs perfectly so problem solved .

One question will leaving the EGR disconnected cause an MOT fail when they test the emissions

Thanks again

Re: EGR VALVE FIX

The EGR is designed to reduce NOx emissions, which are not tested.

Re: EGR VALVE FIX

Yeah, providing your orange light doesn't come on on the dashboard you will be fine. Some people block the pipes up and  then put them back in place for the test, just to be on the safe side but it isn't really necessary and provided you don't just leave the pipes hanging loose, you should be fine.

Re: EGR VALVE FIX

Thanks for your reply that's great I've disguised the two pipes so they look like they are attached no orange engine light on so job done

Van running perfectly once again thanks all for you advice

OK i have made a boob here. I am wanting to put the pipes back but. These two i have two long ones running behind the fuel filter and the one that goes under the EGR is not long enough to reach. Can someone tell me where the pipes should go. Here at the left of expansion bottle and the two under the EGR

Cheers

Re: EGR VALVE FIX

What a great thread!

My 2004 Dispatch was puffing plumes of smoke and chugging at low revs. A few blokes hoses later there’s no smoke in site and a notable improvement in the drive!

Thanks!!  big_smile  big_smile
