EGR valve cleaning PSA 2.0 diesel

EGR valve in 2.0HDi (Peugeot Citroen), 2.0TDCi (Ford) and 2.0D (Volvo) engine is responsible for emission, shorter engine warm up time, smoother turning off and VNT turbocharger spool down on idle. EGR valve cleaning when it’s clogged with soot and can not close as should or even get stuck can help with engine work issues. You should take care of your EGR valve, clean it and don’t blank it.

  • Thank you Mr Fix for this very informative video. I have a Ford s max 2011 2.0tdci engine 163hp.

    Any chance I can bring my car down to you to have my egr valve and egr cooler cleaned.

    My car has done 150000 miles and I wish to keep it until it runs no further and therefore I would really like to clean the egr valve and egr cooler so it functions as it should.

    I could give it a go, all thanks to you showing how it’s done in your video but I would prefer to have it done by someone like you who knows what they are doing.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Many thanks
