A bit of theory.
Why do I need it?
Valve EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) or EGR valve helps the vehicle to become environmentally cleaner (to reduce the emission of nitrogen oxides NO and NO 2 , which are formed at high temperatures). Rather than the car, and its exhaust. This product is on a path connecting the exhaust and intake system. His task is to regulate the flow of exhaust gas into the intake manifold.
Part of the exhaust gas enters the cylinder along with... read more

For a start we remove the nozzle from the car with the fuel rail into which they are inserted. By the way there is a description of the same cleaning nozzles slightly different method: cleaning nozzles.
It is necessary to prepare the fuel rail to create pressure in it, that is to plug the channel return line.
I was helped by a metal barrel of furniture-shelf support. Stop up the "return flow" and just in case zamatyvat wire or clamp.
Now you can... read more
The idea came to clean the nozzles for a simple reason: a machine weighing about a ton consumed nearly 10 liters of fuel per hundred kilometers as the city and on the highway. While the engine is running smoothly, without stalling, regularly pulling in any frost was got well and everything seems to be well in it. Based on the mileage of about 150,000 kilometers and the assumption that the nozzle was never cleaned (some knowledge of the past owner) decided to pull out and clean the... read more
Began to deal with the fact that the indicator began to burn «check», then goes off, then back on fire, and the fuel guzzled a lot of machine. Reading the Internet found that this behavior is very similar to the indicator or a sdohshy oxygen sensor, or on its pollution, or both. Since it is not clear what exactly happened to the sensor, then you should try to clean it, and suddenly he's alive? Then do not buy new, and everything will be fine!

Glow plugs in diesel cars help cold engines heat the air and fuel mix up to ignition temperatures. This becomes more important during winter due to the freezing cold temperatures.
An engine in good condition will ignite without any help from the glow plug when the temperature outside is around -5 °C or higher — I've checked this myself. But when it drops to -8° C or below, things change: the engine gets much harder to ignite, and draining the battery sooner becomes more... read more
A hydraulic compensator is a hidromechanic device that changes its length and compensates for the thermic gap between the valve and the camshaft. It has two parts: an external cylinder and an internal mobile part propelled by spring. At the entrance of this device there's a valve which consist of a ball pressed by spring.
How does the compensator change its length? It's actually a pretty simple process: there's a spring inside the device that gets stretched to its maximum length... read more

It began with the fact that from the first machine factory and a second-half second glohla, and already the second attempt was got right. I think the thing in candles, as recently cleaned the injectors and spark if changed, the previous owner, and no one knows when. Usually spark change and all, but I decided to restore it. Been reading the literature vary, basic recovery method - baking. At first it was not clear why, and what it gives, because the candle and so works in the not very... read more
Many of the cars in time the central brake light stops working partially. Part-"not work" can occur only in the "feet" that contain more than one light-emitting element, such as lamps or 4-6 small number of LEDs. This can be corrected. In this paper, we consider an LED headlamp.
To start the headlight does not hurt to remove.
Let us examine these things device. Inside there is a board on which a series of 12 LEDs soldered. Some of them do not shine, shine some, but... read more
The throttle regulates the flow of air into the engine cylinders. They are mechanical (control cable from the gas pedal) and electric (controlled by an onboard computer with an electric motor). With a strong pollution flap motor can not get the amount of air, which counts on-board computer is programmed to clean the damper characteristics of the crossing.
