FORD MONDEO MK3 diesel EGR BLANKING PLATE.
Ford mondeo MK3 2.0l EGR blanking plate.
this fits engine with EGR valve at front of engine.
Will not fit model with EGR at rear.
Easy to fit blanking plate, fits between egr valve and exhaust gas recirc pipe,
No need to remove egr or recirc pipe to fit, 10-15 minute job.
Fitting instructions shown below.
Plate made from 1.5mm thick aluminium.
Please note this plate will not burn through as stated in other listings
No need for gaskets or gasket sealant plate will be heat softened when you receive it so will compress into faces of joint.
When EGR valve sticks open air supplied to engine
by turbo above 1800rpm is diverted into exhaust
pipe by stuck open EGR valve, engine management
system thinks all this air is going into engine
(detected by MAF mass air flow sensor which is
located near air filter outlet) so EMS injects
fuel to match air it thinks is going into engine,
this results in too little air and too much fuel
which = Black Smoke.
Fitting blanking plate blocks air going back to
exhaust so all air boost from turbo goes to engine
to burn with fuel.
Please note euro 4 engines, the ones fitted with electronic egr valve (wires going to sensor on egr valve) will need a hole drilling in centre of plate which can be up to 10mm to stop EML coming on. cannot guarantee that this will keep light off as on some cars it doesnt work. benefits will still be had from fitting plate its just that you will have to run with EML on.
ignore above if your engine is euro 3 version fitted with vacuum EGR valve, you wont get this problem.
