Volkswagen Passat 1.9TDi EGR Removal / EGR Delete Session

The Volkswagen Passat EGR Valve can be very problematic because these cars suffer from Turbo failures. Once the turbocharger has failed, oil is passed through the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve and gunks up the valve flap causing a sticky EGR valve. As vehicles age, wear & tear will cause oil to weep through the oil seals of a turbocharger and not necessarily become a fault with the unit as such but can cause faults with the EGR unit as this oil builds up. When the EGR valve does get sticky, then it will eventually cause problems which can lead to mechanical failure of the EGR valve and other components.

Common VW Passat EGR Valve Problems

  • Loss Of Power
  • Smoke On Acceleration
  • Fluttering On Acceleration
  • Poor Fuel Economy
  • Hesitation & Missfire
  • EGR Flap Position Faults
  • EGR Related Fault Codes
  • Engine Management Light On
  • Limp Mode / Safe Mode

These are the most common faults we’ve come across on the VW Passat 1.9TDi with EGR problems, there are various fault codes that are related to EGR problems such as P0401, P0402 & P0403 etc. Replacing the EGR valve can be very costly and having it removed and cleaned every few months is not only expensive but time consuming – it will mean having your vehicle off road for half a day each time you have the EGR valve removed for cleaning. – Cleaning the EGR valve will not cure all EGR problems.

What we offer is a complete EGR Removal service and we don’t mean blanking the EGR off either. Most garages and motor enthusiasts suggest using Blanking plates to blank off the EGR valve. This will stop the turbocharger from passing oil up and stop the EGR from recirculating the gasses – as though it weren’t even fitted. The concept of this idea is perfect, however the reality is quite different.

Blanking the EGR valve will most definitely cause the Engine Management light to appear causing Emissions faults as well as others. Below we’ve list some of the most common symptoms you can expect from blanking your Volkswagen Passat EGR Valve:

  • Sluggish In Low RPM
  • Down In Power & Loss Of MPG
  • Poor Throttle Response
  • Limp Mode / Safe Mode
  • Engine Management Light On
  • Emissions Workshop Fault

What we offer is a very different approach to this on going EGR problem that motorists experience. We download and reprogram the Engine’s ECU to completely disable the EGR valve and delete all EGR related data strings. By doing so, we can tell the ECU to close the flap on the EGR valve as it is no longer required – making it no longer necessary to fit EGR Blanking Plates!

We will then program the ECU to disable all EGR values and fine-tune the engine to compensate for the vehicle no longer having an EGR valve fitted – this will result in both an increase in power & fuel economy and peace of mind that you will not experience any EGR related faults ever again. No engine management light, no Limp mode, no Emissions workshop faults and no smoking problems.

After we have successfully carried out the EGR Removal service on your Volkswagen Passat, you can expect the following benefits:

  • Increased Throttle Response
  • More Power & Better Performance
  • Gains Of +10-15mpg In Fuel Economy
  • No More EGR Related Faults
  • No Need To Replace Or Repair – Ever!

Our EGR Removal service will also safeguard the engine and heavily reduce carbon build-up in the engine. All our EGR Removal sessions are 100% completely reversible and come with a Lifetime warranty.

  • hi can I get price for my vw Passat tdi 130sport my egr is leaking oil but no lights on dash but I’ve see here it sounds better by passing it thanks,ps sorry it’s 2002

    • Hi James

      Thank you for your enquiry,

      If your getting oil leaking through the EGR then this would most likely be caused by a leaking turbocharger unit. Having the turbocharger rebuilt and EGR cleaned should solve this problem for you – if you ignore it, you can blank the EGR but eventually the leak may get worse and will at some point or another require attention. If ignored, a turbo leak can become a very costly repair – we can rebuild your turbocharger with new seals, bearings and balancing at a seriously low cost, possibly cheaper than buying a second-hand used part.

      In regards to the EGR delete, it’s certainly a good idea to do this as it will protect your engine and also increase the vehicles performance and fuel economy. I’ve sent you an email with further information and pricing.

  • Hi i have a Vw caddy 1.9tdi life , i see oil coming out of a small hole at the trottle body ,can you please tell me what the cause can be of it, and do i have to replace the throttle body .

    • Hello John

      Thanks for the enquiry,

      Oil in the TB (Throttle Body) would most likely be coming from either a leaking turbocharger or through an engine breather hose. Check and clean the breather hoses, also check the intake pipes coming from the turbocharger for excess oil.

  • Hi there,
    I have a passat 1.9 tdi 100, i’m experiencing problems that will most likely be linked to an EGR Blockage/failure. How much would it cost me to sort it out for good. I can remove the EGR myself no problem, just wondering how to tackle the ECU side of things.

    Thanks

    Henry

    • Hi Henry

      Thanks for the enquiry,

      We can definitely help – if you remove the EGR you can drive in and we’ll simply switch it off from the ECU for you. Or we can do the whole job from start to finish. I have sent you an email with full pricing and information for both options along with the other EGR related services we also offer.

      Kind Regards

  • Hi,
    I have a 1.9tdi Passat on a 09 plate which is experiencing intermittent spluttering around 2000rpm and feels underpowered under that range also. It has had a recon turbo on it as it had an over boost fault and now the engine management flags no fault codes despite the underperformance and spluttering. Would this procedure help me and if so how much please ? I’m in Blackpool.

    • Hello Trevor

      Thanks for the enquiry,

      It could be EGR related but will need to be thoroughly investigated as there are many components which can cause this type of fault i.e. Injectors, MAF, Wastegate and EGR etc. Although there are no fault codes, you will need a competent technician to run live data on the vehicle and pin point where the fault is.

  • Hi there,
    I have a Passat 60 plate (2011 model) with 1.6TDI engine, and only 48k miles on clock. I have a problem with EGR valve (error code P046C). Is it possible to remove EGR in my engine?
    Replacing in VW branch will cost over £600, even if brand new part costs about £200…
