The 'swingometer' isn't an accurate MPG calculation, fill to brim, reset the OBC mpg, reset trip mileage an drive.Hi all is this the norm? the gauge on the dash seems to fly over to off the scale rather too easy now!:frown
Yes remove the vacuum pipe connected to the EGR, block the pipe with a golf tee and place some electrical tape over the now exposed male connectorI did this the easy way by pulling off pipe from top of egr and blocking both sides is this correct?
Car seems to take longer to get warm too!
It shouldn't affect temperature and as said the car should feel a bit perkier, I'd run it as is for a couple of tanks of fuel and if you'reOk this is how i did it. but car seems no different to drive and runs cooler! Is this the norm?
No i have reconnected it untill get egr thermostat done! found it was taking so much longer to warm up hence worse mpg!D'you mean the EGR bypass? I'm not up on ford dervs but I'd assume like BMW if it is a Euro4 emission compliant engine disconnecting the EGR will illuminate the EML.
Have you left yours disconnected then Lee?
