    Too much EGR?

    2002 Jetta ALH TDI: My issue seems to be too much EGR. At idle it smokes a lot and after 2 minutes when the EGR closes, the car runs better, but still doesn't make power (boost actual lower than boost requested). I tried putting a block off plate before the EGR cooler which resulted in the car idling great and revving smooth at idle, but when driving, it would through the overboost code before shifting into 2nd and going into limp mode. VCDS confirmed the over boost with EGR blocked and underboost with EGR setup normally. I did set EGR value to minimum of 33768 which didn't seem to change anything. Mass airflow actual reads lower then requested when EGR is unblocked, but actual reads higher than requested when EGR is blocked. I tried a new Bosch MAF sensor which didn't change anything. I've verified no air leaks in the EGR/boost system or vacuum leaks in the EGR/Boost solenoids Both solenoids appear to cycle properly by VCDS.

    Previous issue with this car that appears to be fixed, but could be related since it hasn't ran right since the issue started:

    Next I'll post log data of current relevant measure blocks.

    Not sure if this is the best way to paste the log data.

    Here is when the EGR is hooked up normal. See boost specified is higher then boost actual:

    Here is when the vacuum hose on the EGR actuator is unplugged. the engine revvs normal, but if I drive it, it overboosts and goes into limp mode.

    I don’t feel confident enough in this case to give you any detailed advice, but what makes you think the problem is the EGR system?

    Fix the positive deviation by maybe checking WG settings as per RTFB & or unplugging the intake of carbon or restriction in boost pipes?

    Cool

    I have solved the mystery! I found that the vacuum line that is supposed to supply fresh air to the boost and egr regulator solenoids was not hooked up to the air box as intended. Instead, it was plugged and held in place with this add fitting.
    https://photos.google.com/u/1/photo/...EMdAS-j0Y-3pB5

    When I saw this before I assumed the fitting let air through was was an alternative to plugging into the airbox. Once I found that this fitting it a plug and prevented the solenoids from breathing fresh air, I knew this must be the issue. I know it has been like this before the initial failure of vacuum line to boos actuator. All I can think is there must have been a vacuum leak somewhere else to let the system breathe. Either way, long problem solved. In case this wild string of failures helps others or should be posted to a separate thread for others to find, here is the summary of my long saga with my 2002 Jetta MKIV TDI ALH - VIN: 3VWSP69M42M141714 Mileage: 337350km-209619miles....

    1. Initial problem was low power due to collapsed vacuum line to boost actuator. I drove the car about 80 miles trying to diagnose the issue, and I think the engine without boost worked hard and hot which caused other issues as found described below.
    I replaced all small vacuum lines, and while the car was still on the lift, I fired it up, heard the turbo whine again :-) but then the car started running rough and smoking and died.

    2. After that the car would only crank but not fire, which sent me on several weeks of tracking down this issue. During this time I ordered my new VCDS cable (last one was kept by VW friends in Milwaukee when I moved away). At this time I posted this string: https://forums.ross-tech.com/showthr...-adjuster-test
    Through all this I found 3 potential issues, Relay 109 was bad (maybe caused by probing with multimeter in the dark), bad wire in drive door hinge causing CCM error codes, and the main issue, a bad injection pump quantity adjuster. I tried everything with the pump, including a in depth tear down and reassembly looking for mechanical damage of which I found none. The case pressure relief valve let loose which I fixed, then replaced, which did not fix the issue. After much more troubleshooting I concluded it must be an issue with the pump quantity adjuster. I bought a scrap car for $100 which had an injection pump with yellow marks showing it was never removed, so I took a chance and with this pump, the car fired right up. Timing belt, and water pump kit replaced at this time. Injection timing set and verified with VCDS (so slick!). I should mention that in the replacement pump, I found the case pressure relief valve let loose which may be why the car was sold for parts. Someone else pulled out the manual trans before I got it for the engine. That car had 310,000 miles so I will be scrapping the rest of it.

    3. Now that Jetta starts again, but blows clouds of white smoke, and has no power. After a few more weeks of troubleshooting and taking breaks to prevent my frustration from burning the thing down, I found the wastegate vanes were sticky. So I removed turbo, EGR, Intake manifold and thoroughly cleaned everything. I replaced the boost actuator and set the wastegate to operate between 5 and 25" with the mighty-vac. Now jetta runs better, but still low on power. VCDS showed boost actual didn't match boost requested. More troubleshooting led me to try a blockoff plate in the EGR and this resulted in boost actual being higher than boost requested and creating an overboost limp mode. I put EGR back to normal, and turned it all the way down with VCDS. After much more troubleshooting I found...

    4. As stated above, the darn vacuum line fitting blocking the fresh air supply to boost and egr solenoids was the issue. After plugging this line into the airbox as it should be, Jetta is back to running great. As excited as I was to sell that thing, I just might keep it again now! Actually, I think I'll sell it and buy an MKIV TDI with stick shift.... now that I think I can fix any future issue with these cars much faster next time.

    Thanks again for all the help!

    Isn't that not fresh air & is vacuum under throttle intake & by venturi effect of a restricted orifice & to assist the vacuum pump and why the nipple is above the air cleaner not below it, it is also why when you hooked it up it sealed the vacuum leak for both?
    Did you also see your accumulator for function?
