Ford ranger EGR


Recommended Posts

My Land Rover has the same engine I believe, 2009 vehicle. 
When I had the EGR blanked off I also had the ECU re-programmed so that it didn’t flag up on the dash that the EGR was not working. It was not in limp mode but had gone into limp mode previously then started working again, which was why I did the job. If I bought another I would blank EGR off straight away.

Did taking it off take light off?? I have just put mine on and hoping she works! I am not bothered to much about lamp I just don’t want any sort of limp mode 

Yes taking it off put the light out ( I'm no mechanic mind, didn't want to do damage for the bit of fuel I thought I would save)

some blanking plates have a app 9mm hole to allow heat through and restrict junk  so heat sensors work  no light  if a solid plate try drill a hole  you may get the best of both otherwise    remap egr out   more horses  less fuel  way more responsive and less fuel
