    I've blacked my egr with plates but not disconnected the top pipe, should I disconnect that too or will it be ok?

    It will be fine the top pipe only sucks the plunger open and with your plate there nothing will happen​

    Either the plunger is leaking and letting ya exhaust gasses through too early or the vlave that controlls it is nackered and its stuck open. Ya can tell if its stuck open if ya unplug the top pipe and it gets better its stuck open if ya unplug it and it stays the same the plunger is leaking. Either way fitting plates instead of your pipe will sort it

    Ebay, search audi a4 egr plates and they will be there somewere, cant miss them. And there is a metal pipe frok ya egr to exhaust manifold. Either end of that. Easyest way to test first is just pull the pipe from the top of ya egr (can do it without removing engine cover) and see how that goes. Stick a bolt or something in the pipe you pull off asael to keep ya vaccum strong or if ya valves nackerd it will constanlty suck air

    Thanks, why do i need to block either ends of it? not just one? i have b6, so 1end in a bottom of egr valve and another one is closer to offside headlamp? if i block them? what happens next? do i need disconnect anythiing?

    Yea both ends or either your egr will suck air or you exhaust willblow. Totaly remove the pipe for ya egr to exhaust manifold and fit one plate to underside of egr and one to exhaust manifold. You wont need any pipes disconnecting then as the plunger wont do anything

    excellent thread.
    I really wish I had your knowledge of these cars (and that you lived closer to me so I could pick your brain in person)

    right. so mine is 2003(11month) so most likely will,(don't want that) if it will come on and i just take them out and put all as it was, will error dissapear or i'll need garage's help to erase that for me? Sorry for being pesky, just want to secure my self.
