Does anybody know the part number of gasket used for 03 2.0 D-4D?

And where to get them?


Cheers.

My 2003 T3X D4D had the engine warning light come on earlier this week, so my wife took it too the local Toyota dealers and they hooked it up and came up with code P0488. The light had gone off by this point but they said that if it re-occured then we'd need a new EGR valve. The quote was 310 fitted!
Anyway since the light had gone off we continued and it came back on yesterday, also the car went into 'limp' mode. So this morning armed with a can of carb cleaner (from Halfords) and a toothbrush (my daughters)and the info gleaned from this thread I set about cleaning the EGR. I got it off ok - although a little daunting at first its really quite straight forwards once you get the air box off.
The cleaner from Halfords worked great and 10minutes later it was clean as a whistle. So I refitted the valve and all the rest of the gubbins and fired her up - still got the engine light on! Anyway I remember reading somewhere that I needed to pull an ECU fuse to clear the fault, so I pulled 21 & 26 the ECU-B & EFI 20. Restarted and power is restored. Everything looks good - hopefully my problem is sorted.
Thanks everyone for contributing to this thread - you've saved me a packet.

Cheers
Lee

Many many thanks for an excellent informative piece about the EGR valve. I had been struggling unbelievably with a sticking valve and the only advice I recieved was to replace it. After finding your article I removed the offending article, squirted it liberally with carb cleaner and then gave it an hour in an ultrasound bath my son had bought for clearing his bike carbs (90). To say it made a difference would be making the biggest of understatements!! It is like a new car - and diesel consumption has dropped from 47 to 57 mpg!!! Thanks again - Steve L

Thanks everybody for a very informative discussion.
My Avensis D4D 2.0 2004, twice lost power on a speed of about 40-50 mile per hours. On both ocasions it longed for about 35-45 seconds and i could see some black smoke from my rear view mirror.
My car has done around 132 k miles, one of my friends was saying that its a typical sign when your turbo is dying, Can it also be a sticking EGR valve?

Please comment.

Many Thanks

Hi - Could somebody who has done this repair tell me where they bought a replacement gasket for the EGR valve? I'm having a hard time finding one; none of the usual suspects seem to stock them. Much appreciated. Thanks.

*Edit* I've answered my own question. The main dealers will order them for you. Cost about nine pounds each.

You dont need to replace them, as they are metallic one, and after cleaning they go back.

Well... it's your funeral. But I've ordered a new gasket. ;)

reviving old thread (but very informative at the same time). When you are cleaning the egr do you also clean the intake and outlet (i mean the holes that egr is fitting onto like in the picture:
