Exclamation Why you need to clean your PD TDI EGR.....often!

This is what my EGR looked like after ~40K of driving, then cleaned, then 4,000 miles after cleaning:

It's nasty. I need to pull it and soak it in solvent which I'll do when I swap turbos.

I just blocked my EGR with a piece of sheetmetal.:Thumbup:

Sort of. He can't totally disable it and that's what mine looked like even after being partially disabled!

That's the hard way. I'll post a how-to in a minute that only takes 10 minutes to complete.

First post here so I could see the dirty pics. (Of the EGR...) I have an '06 Jetta TDI. Want to keep her running well and maybe add a few mods in the next year.

Jeff, at RC said mine was turned off...I just got the RC1+ prodgram on the 04 jetta pd this past weekend and that's what the man stated...now he did indicate that the EGR internal flap will close to help prevent a "runaway"

I have 55K on mine and my egr was nasty also...cleaned it and now its turned off...supposedly...
