Get a can of BG244 and put it in your fuel tank! It might just sort it out!...

Welcome back mate :clap::band: .

Hope you're back for good then, yes I quite like the new format .... I heard they got some cash from Power Enhancers to improve things a bit :naughty: .

Ordered some BG244. Will give it a whirl. The manufacturer seems pretty confident anyway!

thanks for all the photos and info, did mine today after losing power on the motorway yesterday. Was fairly mucky but still movable and got much better with a good clean. I'd like to add the few points though:

- Be carefull when you remove the airbox base as one of my bolts sheared after rusting into the chassis

- I couldn't get a socket head on the left hand valve nut without completely removing the left hand hose and getting pliars into the hose clip was an utter swine

- the hoses do let out a little fluid but only don't continue to flow so I had no need to bung them

Worryingly the coolant in my hoses was a deep orange colour and not the colour of the new coolant in the tank...

Hopefully it'll improve things as it has for others...

Also remember to clean out the manifold pipe that is attached to it as this could also be partially blocked.

Thank you very much Rossi46.

Cleaning of EGR Valve was one of many solutions for solving the probleme of my Avensis.
I have followed exactly your explanations and now my car is OK. It was the good solution !
The left nut was very difficult to remove because there is no sufficient place to insert the tool.

Your explanations and your photos are very precise and very clear. Many thanks !!!

Hi guys, thank you for your pictures, I've done today but I must say that EGR was very clean... I've cleaned with CRC Sensor cleaner the airflow sensor too. And still powerless in low rpm...

When I bought the gasket the guy told me at the oficial service that his car had the same problem and the EGR was also clean, so the mechanic cleaned the Exaust part close to the turbo.

I leave the link, the part is 17141.... What do you think guys???, thank you in advance.

Regards from Spain.

Hello,

Wonderful photos and explanations. ;)

I had a problem with Avensis T25 d4d 85 kw.: then engine is cold - everything OK - car accelerates wonderful, good traction, but then engine becomes hot (about 45-60 Celsius) - there was a lack ("black hole") of tourque, no acceleration, black smoke from exhaust pipe.

Diagnostic showed that MAF sensor is totally dead. Changed - no result. Thanks for forum members I cleaned my EGR. Soaked EGR in break cleaner about two hours, lubricated that part under electric module (removed electric part from EGR valve). Now everything is OK, car rides very smooth, no "black holes" or black smoke at all.

Thank you :)

Thanks for this, it worked great for my car, Toyota had no clue what was wrong with it.

Had some major problems with throttle response once the engine had warmed up. Following this meant I could clean the EGR valve and now engine runs as it did. Thank you so much!

Hi Rossi, I have the same model and year and believe the EGR valve is well overdue for a clean, (Car has done over 120K and I dont believe it has been cleaned for at least last 70K) Now on my Modeo it took me 5 minutes to remove 10 mins to clean and 5 to put back. You pics show that this wont be the case this time. Do you have any more pics I can see? and any additional advice?

Regards

John

Hi,
My D4D 4.2 is having problems with intermittent lack of power above 2500 rpm, and it will often go into 'limp home' mode when going up a steep hill, or when accelerating hard.

I brought it to Toyota service, the engine fault code was something like "turbocharger overboost". Toyota has done turbo valve (I am not sure what it is) adjustment and said it would be fine now.

Unfortunately, it was the same - steep hill, above 2500 rpm and 'limp home' mode. I have visited Toyota for two more times, same adjustments and same result. Toyota said that if the same happens again, then I should think of changing turbo :(


I decided to follw the instruction in this post and clean the EGR. Unfortunately, it did not help - steep hill, above 2500 rpm and 'limp home' mode.

Then I decided to make make a blank out of stainless steel and put it instead of EGR gasket.

Great success :) Now RAV4 has no problem with steep hills :)

No, no engine light on.

To be honest, I did this yesterday. Tested on few hills, but no engine light. I will post, if I see something weird.
