Newer style Inlet manifold work on older engine??

Postby Kenton » Sun Dec 01, 2019 3:39 pm

Hi guys, probably been answered before, but i couldn't find a direct thread.

My Inlet manifold ideally needs replacing. As you can tell, i have the inlet with the nasty permanently fixed EGR valve. I cant seem to find many used ones which seem decent - and lets face it, they are probably as filthy as mine! I have however found a number of later versions (picture attached) which have the detachable EGR valve. Are these in ANY way compatible with the older engine?? I presume not, but thought it was worth asking.

Cheers for any help and education as always,

I can't answer your question, but is yours the same as the TDDi :?:

I have one kicking about somewhere, that I (unnecessarily!) changed on the Focus.
Are you wanting to cure a problem, or are you just wanting a clean one :?:

Cheers for the reply Al. I should have made my post clearer. My Inlet manifold is the original, and having covered 140+K miles, it will need cleaning. Being that the EGR valve is not removable, I would ideally like to replace the manifold - rather than attempting to clean it - for the aforementioned reasons. I wouldn't honestly know if my TDCi has the same inlet system as the TDDi, I am presuming it may not be owing to the fact that there are so many minor differences. I have changed the glow plugs, the injectors, the MAP sensor, and cam sensor within the last year, but i cant seem to get rid of an un-even tick-over problem when started from cold. This only NOW lasts for about 5-6 seconds until it evens out nicely, but after a while on tick-over, it emits blue smoke which gradually gets worse, until i drive it away. The filters, oil, and just about everything else have been replaced recently. I have removed the CAT which may account for the smoke, but the rough idle at the point of start really annoys me as the van goes like stink (apologies for the pun) when it is driven.
Hope this is enough info Al. Sorry to waffle. So, in short, to possibly cure a problem, but most definitely cross yet another component off the list!

All the best, and thanks again,

Kenton
