Problem with a BMW MINI COOPER 1.6 D 2009 41k

Engine cutting out and excessive black smoke, EML on fault code stored 407E EGR fault.

After further investigation, the EGR valve, EGR pipe and inlet manifold were removed and found to be heavily blocked with soot deposits.

The fault was cured by fitting a new EGR valve, manually cleaning the inlet manifold and EGR pipe with Forté Diesel Intake Cleaner adding Forté Advanced Formula Diesel Treatment to the fuel tank and carrying out an extended Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush. The vehicle was then taken on an extended road test with the vehicle power and performance restored.
