Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.
By the air inlet valve, do you mean EGR (exhaust gas recirculation valve) by any chance?
Ahhh, okay, so the throttle. ( At the diesel) air flap.
These valves don't break so often, I'd say they last 10 years and longer.
However, if the valve breaks, it has to be replaced.
Here you should talk to the Ford workshop, whether it makes a goodwill application to the manufacturer and if the manufacturer possibly contributes part of the costs to the repair.
I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
Not dangerous for you as driver, but the engine may be damaged if you drive too long in error mode.
