Hey all - just wanting some suggestions on how I can block off/delete my EGR without throwing codes.

So I've had a catastrophic failure of the egr cooler - there is communication between the coolant and exhaust cavities, and it just pours out water, even when not pressurised.

Cooler replacement looks to be in the $2000 realm, and second hand coolers are non-existent.

So my question is: can I block off the EGR valve, coolant lines and exhaust recirculation (Cooler delete) without it throwing codes?

Alternatively, I could simply block the coolant lines to the cooler and just have uncooled air run back into the intake, with the presumable loss of power due to high air temp etc.

If I do delete the entire cooler, with plates over exhaust and egr valve, does it throw codes but no engine light?

Any advice on work-arounds would be greatly appreciated

Dave

You might have to see a diesel specialist for that. I'm sure you're aware that even in Australia doing this is illegal and police are trained to look for it if you happen to get stopped. There are many videos on YouTube about this pertaining to Aus.

Perhaps there's an aftermarket cooler available?

Be better off finding a wrecked one and getting those parts if the car is worth it. I've had my egr tuned when I had my dpf and ecu tune. The egr's on these are known to strip the cogs which are stupidly made of plastic.
