Cleaning inlet manifold.

I've been doing lots of reading recently about cleaning the inlet manifold after blocking the egr. Lots of different people with different ideas.

I've got some pics of inlet manifolds which are so blocked with soot its crazy that the engine actually runs.. I'll dig them up and post them here..

What are your thoughts on the likely hood of the inlet cleaning itself to an extent overtime after the egr is blocked? Or is it just going to stay the same? The gunk I've seen in them is almost like tar.

I dont really want to pull it apart to clean it, and the idea of squirting stuff in there doesn't excite me. If its running fine, and the egr is blocked, should one just leave it?

That exactly what I thought. And cross country 4x4 told me to do it when I bought the egr plate.

Wish I had done it as it may have saved me $8,000 lol.. I doubt it as mine was so blocked.

Clean it out..
