Volkswagen TDI - Dieselgeek EGR delete install
This is a step-by-step instructional video showing how I installed a race
pipe and EGR cooler delete kit from Dieselgeek.com on my 2002 Volkswagen
Jetta TDI. Written instructions were not included in either kit. This mod
did trigger a Check Engine Light after about 12 miles of driving.
The race pipe and EGR cooler delete kit together ran me exactly $169.01

P0401 EGR Valve Port Cleaning
This is my DIY for clearing the CEL code P0401 (EGR Insufficient Flow) on a
98 Honda Prelude.
In cars with OBD2 if the EGR valve is restricted by carbon deposits it will
detect that and throw a CEL. To get rid of that CEL you must clean out the
carbon to allow flow.
After combustion occurs within the engine it creates Exhaust. Gas from the Exhaust straight from the engine is very bad for
the air. The EGR valve recaptures that Exhaust and runs it through the combustion
process again, which lowers the temperature of the fumes (Exhaust gas) and lowers the amount of pollution
exiting into the atmosphere.
If you don't fix it you won't pass SMOG in California. You may experience
rough idling and poor acceleration.
Get your "EGR port plugs" from Honda. They will have it.
Removing the injectors are important to allow clearance to the port plugs.
When you pull out the injectors you might as well clean them since they are
Slide hammers make pulling the port plugs out easily.
Drill with a bit the size of your tap. Drilling halfway through the port
plug to should be enough distance to fully grab the port with the slide
If after you clean your ports and valve the CEL has not been cleared, you
EGR valve maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.
Biodiesel Myths: Diagnosing TDI Performance Issues (Part 2)
Volkswagen TDIs are wonderful vehicles and one of the most popular choices
for biodiesel use, but they are prone to several common issues that are
often mis-diagnosed or wrongly blamed on biodiesel. Frequently these begin
with symptoms of low power and sluggishness. There are a number of possible
causes for this typical problem, and none of them are due to biodiesel! Dr.
Dan of Dr. Dan's Biodiesel discusses the technical background and typical
causes for low power issues in TDIs, and how to cure them.
DIY Fuel Injector Cleaning & Repair
This is the end result of a few hours of work and $60 because I didn't have
a 1/4" NPT tap in any of my kits. I could have done this for less-than
$40. The BG products were donated to the cause.
The REASON you want to use 20 PSI is precisely because of how peak-hold
type injectors work. The injector signal sends a 4v spike to open a
peak-hold type injector quickly, then maintains its open condition with
only 1 volt. Really, it's a current thing and there's a longer
explanation, but that's it in a nutshell. When you put the injector in its
operating pressure, it takes more than a AA battery to open it, but you
don't want to sustain that much current with a momentary switch and your
expensive injectors. This isn't in the video because this warning wouldn't
be as clear. Unless you can simulate the injector pulse precisely, don't
try it. 1.5v is enough to open it below its operating pressure. If you
open it and THEN apply pressure, you can flow as much pressure as you can
throw at it.
I don't discourage anyone from getting their injectors professionally
cleaned and balanced, but in my case, I didn't feel that was necessary.
In my first video, I thanked the seller for these injectors and happy to
know I got a great deal on high quality parts. My gratitude is even
greater because I had problems with them. It gave me an opportunity to
help others troubleshoot these kinds of problems when purchasing used
parts. A different idiot might have blamed the seller for peddling crap,
demanding their money back... but that would only be because they didn't
even know what they were looking at.
This particular idiot knows what high quality parts RC injectors are and
how to clean 'em. $250 + $60 still means I saved about $150 on a brand new
set. We all benefit because I bought these and I'm grateful! Let the good
406 HDi 110 Engine Maintanence
The 406's annual service. A number of things are done. The oil gets
changed, a new oil filter put on, new diesel filter, air filter changed and
egr cleaner sprayed in. As well as a new pollen filter to get rid of the
stale smell coming from the air vents.
This is the first time I've used ramps to change the oil, they did need
some wooden blocks to raise the car up before driving onto them but it
makes working under the car and holding the camcorder much easier.
I didnt have an oil filter wrench to hand but using the screwdriver to turn
the filter doesn't do the car any harm the old filter is going to the bin
P0401 Honda Accord, Cleaning EGR Passages - EricTheCarGuy
I know I'm jumping around but it will all become clear in the end, I hope.
This is once again that same Accord that I worked on but this time I focus
on cleaning the EGR passages. Over time these passages become clogged with
what is called "hard carbon deposits", many speculate as to the origins of
this material but it is in my opinion the product of condensation and
carbon buildup inside these passages that seems to contribute to this
problem. The fix is pretty straight forward as you can see but the
diagnosis can be tricky at times. Sometimes the check engine light will
come on for an EGR flow code, but on earlier models EGR flow is not
detected by the ECU and in those cases it might manifest as a failure of an
emissions test for high NOx emissions. When this is the case the symptoms
sometimes include, surging on the highway or a misfire under load. For the
most part EGR's are easy to check but there are some EGR systems that are
very difficult to service and repair. All I can say is to consult with the
service manual or a knowledgeable tech whenever you run into a system your
not familiar with.
