Re: Loss of power TD5

@the ear.

Most TD5 fitted vehicles in South Africa do not have the EGR system fitted as standard,

If by chance , it has a EGR unit or the blank non functioning castingfitted. the best is to remove it and fit a staight through replacement tube in place of the existing dummy unit.
