    Nice video, understand it 100% now. Had a look at my V6 TDI... yes much more complicated, - still researching.

    Think I got lucky, just figured out that on my V6 TDI, which is still the BKS (165kw) engine code, the EGR is the vacum type. The CASA (176kw) are all electronic.

    Marius, in the attached diagram, I need your help understanding this piece of machinery. What is part 15 opposed to part 30. I assume I need to plug hose 4 opposed to hose 14... or both?

    Just blank number 4.

    Number 14 is a vacuum diaphragm that actuates a butterfly in the egr cooler to determine how much coolant is sent through the cooler.

    Can you pull your intake hose to have a look at how clean your intake and/or throttle body is?

    I'll have a look. So possibly, I could shut down the cooler with that valve. The EGR cooler is a part that is known to fail on BKS V6 TDI's.

    Not that simple. Thats just a diverter valve.

    To truly eliminate you will have to bridge the two coolant pipes that go in and out of the cooler. Blank the vacuum pipe. If the cooler doesnt have a oil feed then you can remove the cooler altogether.

    Problem is I suspect the V6 TDi has post CAT sensors that will need fooling or need to be mapped out.
    This is what I have been told by the "stealers" and I was strongly advised NOT to have it removed.

    I decided to take the air filter out tonight and dust it out a bit.

    How's this for a bit of clever design.

    Air comes up out of that tube in the middle and hopefully any water will back to the bottom and drain out.

    You really have to scoop a lot of water to get water in the engine.

    Pictures of the airbox with filter and front cover removed.

    Hi all, i called Tim he can only see me on the 8th April, so since AR said they can not sort it out, decided since the car will be standing for 3 weeks why not give it to another auto elec. and gues what he sorted all my electronics out, lights, PDC everything 100%, after 3hrs that he worked on the car, WTF... what did the previous auto elec. do?

    Only problem still now is the high vibration that comes from the motor, he said it can be from the injector side, timing adjustment, etc. But also maybe from the balancing on the crankshaft, what do you guys recon. The engin mountings is 100%. I am so close of driving that silver baby..

    When i dropped it of at the auto elec. I stood for a few seconds to admire the sight of the Treg standing on dirt road and the goodrich tyres makes a great visible impact.
    A beautifull sight indeed, just there i remembered why i bought it.

    I guess this is like a marriage you take with all the good and the bad....

    A vibration makes me have a furious cold sweat. Have a Vagcom scan for errors as well as injection quantity differences across the injectors.

    Also have a compression test done.

    I hope you don't walk my walk. It isn't nice!

    came back yesterday and the car kept that average of 8.9l/100km for the entire trip to Durban and back through roadworks, roadblocks and speedbump temp roads.

    All in all my confidence in the car is coming back.

    My Treg also had a full long weekend, 2000 km's in total: JNB - Malelane - Satara - Orpen - Mopani - Malelane - JNB.

    No problems, average consumption 10.00 l / 100 km. Including KNP driving slow on the dirt roads, and crazy traffic back home yesterday. N4 is a disaster just after Nelspruit.

    Even spotted a forum members Treg in the KNP - Devon's R5 (attached)... Devon, you are a very kind sibling to let your brother take your Treg to Kruger!

    I wasn't using the Treg as I was in Ithala NP in a friend's Prado for the weekend, so I let my brother take it through to Kruger. He mentioned that he saw you there and got a nice photo of our 2 Treg's parked side by side, I will upload it later tonight

    Chris - Game viewing was good, lots of Rhino... think they are fleeing the eastern border. Lots of Lion, Ellies, Waterbuck, Hippos. Few sightings of Ground Hornbill, and I had a midnight encounter with a Honey Badger trying to raid our stuff... confronted him, - forgot how agressive they are. Won't be messing with one of those again.

    Devon - cool, looking forward to the photo . Just FYI, your brother was driving nicely
