Not had the valve clearances done since we got it 80'kms ago, might just book it in for that & to get the inlet & intercooler cleaned at the same time.

is it worth considering disabling the EGR?, how easy is this to do, on my Toyota surf you need to by or make a blank off plate & remove a load of piping from the back of the engine.

The cleaning process is very labour intensive so if you choose to get it done by your mechanic, expect to add another $500-1000. The EGR valve block off is actually illegal here (not sure in NZ) but that is up to you on that. That is why I suggested a good quality oil catch can as it removes the majority of the oil vapour before it goes through the intake system.

Default Diesel fuel conditioner

Have purchased a new Pajero Sport, wondering if I should use some diesel fuel conditioner once a month to help keep particulated filter clean as it only does short trips.
If so what brand

Don't think there is any additive that will do that. Low ash full synthetic oil will certainly help along with 7,500k oil changes.

A good run occasionally on a motor way or road where you can do at least a constant 80kph for 8 to 10k is not a bad idea.

Dont know if its legal here, heaps of people do it & I even talked to my mechanic about it before, he said "if its running ok, leave it alone, our work truck toyota ute has the EGR running & has done over 350'kms"

Maybe Ill ask for a quote for the intake,,,

Nothing can clean a blocked DPF except taking it off and trying to clean it. Some here have tried with mixed success.


Enviro+ DPF Cleaner is a Patented, liquid bimetallic platinum & cerium catalyst, Diesel Fuel Additive specifically formulated to clean blocked DPF's (Diesel Particulate Filters) as well as improve the operation and reduce maintenance of the DPF & emissions control systems in diesel engine applications. Its formulation is soluble and stable in traditional diesel & bio-diesel fuels. It cleans and assists in regeneration of diesel particulate filters (DPF's), reduces engine particle matter, cleans injectors, improves Diesel Fuel combustion improving fuel economy, engine efficiency and maximising catalyst life.
