EGR Valve cleaning is scheduled for every 30K Kms.

Jaggu: Is the EGR Valve cleaning mandatory at 30K Kms (The service manual states that it needs to be cleaned every 30K)? My car would be going for its 30K service in a month and hence wanted to know whether I need to do this valve cleaning or push it to later and what would be its side effects if I don't clean it at 30K.

What decarb are you suggesting? If you are talking about the contraption which pumps liquid along with diesel to burn the carbon, its useless. And no EGR cleaning is separate from head decarb if that is what you meant.

To avoid unscheduled headaches its better to do it, refer to diesel fans thread.

But somehow almost all the dealer workshops i have approached try to shy away from this. I know its lil tedious where the ROI of labor will not be great for the workshop.

But common guys give customer some respect and peace of mind by doing manufacturer recommended service jobs

@ Jaggu / Eddy - this is a good read - though the engine is different.

Any recent pics of the car? Take care and drive safe.

Thanks for the link,In 30k service the MASS just cleaned the nozzle, charged me for cleaning of EGR cleaning, They acted smart and me a fool.
Is the process mentioned in the link,prescribed by Maruti? and the right way to clean EGR valve?

Eddy,

When you saw the EGR cleaning did they access the EGR from underneath the car or from the top of the engine? My SA insisted that the only way to get at it was from below the car.

Drive on,
Shibu.

@shibu: look at the link and its clearly seen that the access is from top, one needs to remove battery and air filter. Which now i think of it, is another give away in my case that EGR was not cleaning, coz the stereo retains the settings
