    EGR insufficient flow repetitive fault

    hi everyone I bought my van with 20,000 miles on it from an independent dealer in Wigan. A week later the EGR light came on. The dealer paid for the EGR to be replaced by my local mechanic to ensure I wouldn’t have further problems. Several months later the light came on again and the EGR...

    Pendle & EGR

    So my van has a Pendle remap. The EGR valve has died. The garage says they could just do a delete but it’d need mapping out but they can’t do it as my van is already remapped. Is there now way round this or do I have to get a new EGR?

    EGR Valve Self Test Procedure (IDE00242)- P046C?

    So, I've been getting the all too common P046C fault code along with P2457 (Insufficient EGR Cooling Performance). Neither alone will flag a check engine light but combined they sometimes seem to. To try to figure out what is going on, I ran an EGR Flow test on VCDS using instruction from @mmi...

    EGR Cooler change - blank & map out..

    Hi, Just wanting to improve my understanding.. If an EGR Cooler is blanked off.. Will this mean that that the DPF blocks up / blocks up quicker? Also, will the DPF still continue to function as VW intended / function effectively without adversely effecting the engine? Understand that the...

    I have a 2018 T6 California which I have owned for approx 2 years.

    [T6_measured] 01-Engine - Built-in test for EGR

    So it seems - inevitable P0401. Well, visited a VW garage to be tested - the van had accumulated 30 events in ECU's memory since July 2021 (since 20 months now). Eventually managed turn on the emission light at event number 31 - thus had a priviledge to have EGR flow tested. The result -...
