asabo posted a topic in Operation and Maintenance: 450 Model, 2005-2006, dieselHello, My engine light came on the othe day, and the power dropped off when driving. I used scanguage to check, and found codes P0401, P0402, P0409. When looking at the web, I found this to be an EGR Valve cleaning, probably... I drive short distnaces as a habit. One to three km per trip, and mostly on a cold engine, so I'm the poster child for clogging the valve. I tried to remove/clean the valve. I can get the actuator off but can't get the valve out. So after a couple of days trying, I put it back together and drove to the dealership. This is where it gets expensive... They want min of 1.5 hours to "DIagnose", despite my giving them the codes. They are saying it needs a valve replacement at $430 for the part and 2.5 labour hours to replace it. So with tax it'll be over $1,000! Does antbody know if third party mechanics can do thi work, and what it might cost elsewhere? I can't believe its a @&%#ing $430 part... Feeling ripped off :-( Tony
This came out of a 2005 smart fortwo 0.8L diesel CDI engine with 89,000km. Head has been inspected and rebuilt. The valve and valve seats have been resurfaced, and installed with new valve seals. Comes with camshaft, rocker arms, and caps. Thought I would use it on a project car but canceled those plans. $800obo bechven@Hotmail.com
