2013 v200 tdi - EGR valve

Postby Kiwi3 » Fri Apr 22, 2016 2:02 pm

I'm currently having issues with the EGR valve on my v200 ute
Spanner light keeps coming on - code reads P1404 - have pulled unit off & serviced - also put blanking plate in with 4mm hole
Where before the light would come on intermittently now comes on after 5-10km with engine light more often now - keep erasing codes but am getting sick of that game
Any ideas out there folks

Try cleaning the manifold too, you might be surprised at the level of soot.

Cheers for that - have also cleaned manifold , still same issue , going to borrow a spare EGR unit next week off a mate , see if that makes any difference before I blow money on a new or 2nd hand one , damn annoying as it was only replaced under warranty late last year - dealer doesn't want to know about it now it's out of warranty & GW australia are impossible to contact .......

The car is out of warranty, but the egr valve must carry warranty (from the date of purchase/supply). Take it back for replacement.
In vic at least a 'reasonable period' per consumer law is considered 12 months.

Typical problem with the EGR valves failing, is yours making a rattling sound?

The dealership here says that Great Wall parts do not have a warranty & as you know Great Wall themselves are next to impossible to contact - have now sent them 6 emails & not a word
The vehicle runs great & apart from a couple of small issues I'm happy with it - just not happy with the customer care & back up from GW & the local dealership - the replaced the air con condenser (2nd time) only 6 weeks back & it's crapped out again
Are there any aftermarket EGR valves that will fit ???

Try drilling the hole out to 10mm, will let abit more soot through but should stop the dash lights, or take EGR off all together and get ecu reprogrammed to read fine Evan if it's not there

I have completely pulled mine off. I have left the egr valve pluged into the computer but have removed it and blocked the 2 holes with steel plates. My ute is running fantastic and no lights or fault lights on dash. Im over spending $1000 every 6 to 12months on a new egr. I dont know if doin this can creat other future problems but guess ill find out

Quick update. I have completely take out egr vavle and made a pipe that goes from where the egr valve was back to my exhaust. Ive put a plate in the join with a 3mm hole so i get enough back pressure for turbo to spoil. The hole on the engine ive blocked uo with a steel plate and a gasket. So far the ute is running fantastic. Done about 500kms. Will let all know if i run into any problems. If any1 wants pics of what ive done. Hit me up

Hi Guys,
First time poster, long time reader lol
Ok my 2012 V200 has already had a replacement EGR and 14 months later its on its way out again!
Is there anything I can do to avoid replacing it again? The car only has 8 months left till its payed out and Ill be upgrading but till then is there anything I can do? Engine and spanner light have been on for just over a month but now im starting to actually hear the little budgie under the bonnet sound that is the EGR

Soooo will blanking it off stop the noise? I dont mind dealing with it how it is but I still very much remember the screaming it made last time when it was completely shot, dont wanna deal with that again.

Any advice is much appreciated, thanks in advance
