Re: Diesel EGR Valve Replacement (Dzljet)

Yes, I agree, but mine 75% of its mileage did on loooong distances - ususally 1000miles for one time - and still, some problems occured. Service ruled out EGR. I will update everyone in 2 months, when I will have my first regular service

Re: Diesel EGR Valve Replacement (denzo)

I use Shell too, here in Lux they have only one kind of Diesel, normal. When I travel sometimes I fill up at Esso/BP/Aral/Q8/Total, few times on Czech and Polish gas stations - but nation-wide recognized, but most of the time Shell. Fuel is not a problem, because if it would, I would get signal from the engine like: blocked injectors, water in fule filter, blocked fuel filter, but MOST OF ALL, the car would leave LOTS of black smoke behind. No such thing happens.

Re: Diesel EGR Valve Replacement (Dzljet)

Fule is fuel, as long as it keeps the norms and grade, its ok


Yes, they have other type of diesel fuel in Germany, Belgium, France, and other countries, BUT, this kind of diesel is dedicated to OLDER cars - like 10 years or even older. Why? Diesel is Oil based fuel, it lubricates engine as well. This "premium" diesel is loaded with better lubricant and so on. Just to revitalize old engines a bit, clean injectors, refresh turbo a bit. New engines "like" normal fuel, which is better for them. Here in Lux, average car age is between 3-5 years. I will change mine, when it will hit 3-4 years or come close to 80.000km (50.000miles). So I dont care so much about how it will run after that time. When my guarantee expires, I have to say good-bye to the car, and get a new one.

And I forgot, "premium" diesel is supposed to have less sulfur. Is it true? I dont know. I can't test it, and I don't "eat" everything that fuel companys are telling me
