EGR filter Question & Gear Clunk Worries!

HeritageBoy

Offroader
Hi all

Freelander keeps dying on the motorway so I'm going to have a stab at changing the EGR filter (part LLJ500010). The Freebie's a 2002 on a 52 plate - I guess the above part should suffice? people on here have mentioned a 'spring' like filter on other posts.

Also, I'm getting a worrying 'clunk' from the rear of the vehicle, especially when changing down gears... the gearbox seems stiffer too. Any ideas?
 
Clunk from the rear could be the rear diff front mount gone, when they get really bad they can cause enough movemant for the prop/diff to hit subframe etc.

Not sure what you mean about the egr filter though.
 
I think you mean the depression filter for the crankcase breather, at least that is what that part number is for:)

Check out this thread for more info and pics.
 
Thanks for that, I'd had a butchers at that thread and the 'Heavy Breathing' one.
I ended up going for the replacement kit, which was only a couple of quid more than the filter. Fitted it under spotlights and torch last night :eek: old one was full of black oily goo. Thing is, travelling up the motorway this morning the problem's still there... power dies at high (70mph+) speeds - I can maintain 70 but can't seem to go any faster. This lasts for a couple of mins or so then power's restored. Any ideas? Please don't tell me it's an injectors problem...

Regarding the clunking, anyone out there have any pictures of a rear diff front mount? Could a complete novice like me sort it myself?

Did you already try to disconnect the MAF to see whether the symptoms remain the same ??

Mate if you are getting faults from the egr, you can always block it, be sure though that the sensor is ok so that no indication warning light lights up, but the best thing to do I believe concerning you EGR is to block the pipping with a solid gasket. The cheapest way out. Though your EGR will basically not be contributing anything but weight to your car from now on.
 
Thanks for that, I've been getting mixed-up between the depression filter for the crankcase breather and the egr valve.... I've replaced the filter, and the next job is to clear out the gunk in the egr valve (or indeed, block it off full stop).

Thanks for the tip. I've also got to get underneath and sort the diff mount... everything seems to be going south since I passed 90k miles! It was a new fuel pump last month...
 
mine has got 85k on it and i have had to spend £1500 on it in the last year sick of it its going to get the push in the next few weeks one of the worst 4x4 i have been stupid enough to buy WHY I SOLD MY TOYOTA HI LUX PICK UP FOR I WILL NEVER NO
 
Had what sounds to be the same performance problems. Tried everything - MAF, boost pressure modulator, boost sensor, crank case filter and everything else talked about here and on other forums. After four months or so of getting nowhere a mechanic friend suggested I try the CAT. Disconnected the exhaust at first flexible joint. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. More power than ever. Replaced the CAT and all is now well (at least it was until I got rid a week later)

Strange... post serious 4x4 action in the snow my performance problem has disappeared - now can do 70mph+ on the motorways without power loss. Thing is my steering wheel vibrates now when I'm at 70:(

Ours always seem a little better after a good bit of use - half an hour's off roading sorts out any suspension niggles and a blast up the ring road seems to make the engine less asthmatic!
