Got a modern diesel with an ERG system? Got over 100,000 km on the clock? Chances are that the inlet manifold is starting to clog up with an oily carbon sludge.
At The Torque Team, we have both the experience and equipment to quickly remove, clean and refit clogged-up inlet manifolds.
Symptoms include a drop-off in engine performance and/or fuel economy, or in more extreme cases the engine may idle or run rough or not even idle at all.
How does this happen? To lower emissions, modern diesel engines are equipped with an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. When pre-determined conditions are met, exhaust gases are circulated back into the engine via the inlet manifold. This is all good and well if the engine is running clean. But if it is burning poor quality fuel, using a bit of oil or suffering from fuel system faults, carbon and oil will be present in the exhaust gases. And these will quickly settle on the inside of the cooler inlet manifold during the recirculation process.
