If you life in the capital 'Distrito Nacional' you should visit 'Auto Repuestos Mendez'. I always find everything I need for my Benz over there.


Im not sure what EGR is, can you post a picture, or perhaps explain to me what it is, im not sure...

EGR is the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve. This was a mandated emissions control that really has little benefit on our diesels and is not necessary for the car to run. Some people remove them entirely and block off the hole where it mounts with an easily made plate. The important thing to do in such a case is to be sure that the vacuum line to it is plugged as well. People have claimed better performance from bypassing the EGR valve among other things.

All the vacuum line was disconnected.. the turbo and the EGR no have the vacuum line in the correct position. I need a vacuum line diagram to connect that in the correct position. I dont know where is the EGR Valve .

OK, I'm having trouble posting a picture. If you want, you can PM me your e-mail and I can send it direct.
