View Full Version : EGR Valve Cleaning Tips

21-04-2016, 06:17 PM
I'm planning on removing and cleaning the EGR valve on my N15 SSS. Firstly, I'd like to know what gasket/s I'll need to purchase and where to source them. Any other tips on how to proceed and any possible pitfalls would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, also, the issue I'm trying to address is occasional light detonation at low RPM and under load. In the past I had also experienced hunting idle problems and also clutch-in stalling which I remedied by adjusting base idle. However, those issues may also have been related to a dirty EGR system.

Most people just block it off.

Stalling on clutch-in is related to the idle control valve (which you have adjusted) and the car will benefit more from cleaning that than the EGR/BPT valves.
