Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I have a 58 plate Ford Transit MK7 2.4l RWD, when I bought it the engine light was on and the guy selling said that the garage to him the EGR valve needed cleaned out. The van only had its PSV 2 weeks previous. I stripped out the EGR valve and it looked like something that hadn't done 10000 miles, dry soot and nothing that I thought should stop it working, I proceeded to remove the top cover and all the gears where fine and moving although there was some soot in the gearing but nothing to stop it working. There is 91000 on the van. The steel EGR pipe going to the inlet manifold had black tar/ gunk in it so I removed the inlet manifold and pipe and proceeded to clean these out also along with the sensor in the steel pipe prior to the inlet manifold. I am starting to wonder is there a wiring problem and not the EGR valve? Any ideas? If an engine wiring diagram was available back to the fuse box it might help me rule this out! Thanks Richie.
I am a CAT engineer so will buy the kit and fit it myself. Can I walk into a ford dealership and ask them to flash the ECM with the new software and cancel the engine management light? How long would this take and how much roughly for the EGR valve, Flash of ECM and Engine management light to be put out?
BN58OMP is the reg, thanks for the information and sorting out the additional pricing and part numbers.
This is my first time using Just Answer, if I rate you now does this close our chat window or can you still give me information? If it closes it on rating I will rate it tomorrow for you so you receive your payment? Just let me know.
Thanks again for all your help.
Do you happen to have a part number for the warranty kit and the later EGR kit incase I decide to send it into a dealership. At least I could quote them the part numbers for a more accurate quote?
No Problem Brian. Thanks for the part number anyway. I have called Ford in Stafford and they quoted me £420 inc VAT and I asked for trade discount, so I managed to get it for £390 all in. That is new EGR, fitting, PCM update and engine management light rest.
Do you think that is a fair price?
Thanks for all your help.
Thanks for all your help, I think that will conclude everything. You have been a great help. I think the fact that I am an engineer you begrudge paying money for jobs you can do yourself.....
Once again thanks for all your help!
