Re: N75 valve on 2.2 DW12 2.2 HDi engine

Can't be certain, but I too think it's to operate the air dosers. Cant check on mine as it was removed years ago. On a 2.2 the air doser is used to bypass the intercooler, route the charge air through the air/water heat exchanger behind the radiator to assist warm up. It never operates after the coo...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Sounds like good news on the health front. Don't suppose there's any point asking you not to overdo it? (I'm just as bad, have a tear in one suprasinus tendon so it hurts like hell to lift my left arm. You can guess what fun it is unloading a truck part full of garments on overhead rails). Had a few...

Re: Going to stop lurking now...

HI & welcome aboard. 8)

406's do kinda grow on you, it'll feel like a comfy old shoe in no time.
They're very underrated load swallowing, mile eating, marvels you can run for peanuts.
Plenty of helpful info and free advice here for the asking.

What flavour 406 did you splash out on?

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Guess it's better to have that behind than in front of you?
More so this time next week.
Hope it all works out OK and there's nothing serious to worry about.

Re: Pointy Indicators on modern cars

+1 Let's go back to indicators you can SEE. Trucks now have scrolling indicators too. :roll: Saw one where they'd been mounted sideways ether side of the rear door. With the hazards on it looked like it was planning on sinking. And another thing - could we please have a different flash rate or patte...

Re: My new 406 project #2

Likewise. If I'd managed that my next move would be a lottery ticket.

Don't understand this midlife crisis thing tho, (unless a red 200SX counts). :oops:

Enjoy. :mrgreen:

Re: N75 valve on 2.2 DW12 2.2 HDi engine

There's certainly a difference in how they're controlled.
Air doser and swirl flap are all or nothing, while egr, turbo and the other one I can't remember :oops: are modulated.
I thought I read somewhere that they were different valves too, but I could be wrong. [/senior moment]

Good to hear you're feeling a bit better, hope they get to the bottom of it soon. Interesting sight that there woodworking kit. Not a hope in hell of being able to operate anything like that legally in the UK, but then we've all got exactly the same rules across the EU to promote fair competition, h...

I've yet to find an alternative to Fotobuckit
Any recommendations on a usable alternative, preferably without enough ads to stop a supercomputer till Xmas?

Re: Glowplugs (HDi)

+1 HDi's will start easily without the glow plugs working. I've had a faulty CTS that caused more or less the symptoms you describe. Connecting a new one without inserting it into the thermostat housing should prove a faulty sensor by restoring normal cold running behaviour. There not expensive, def...

Re: 406 Back seat

Hi & welcome aboard, 8)

I'm guessing yours is a saloon?
I've only ever had estates, but someone who knows should happen along soon.
