2006 IS220d

Had the 5th injector replaced 3 months ago included with the recall ...I think stearing and back brakes???

2 weeks ago I started to do some investigation into the known problems.

Now last week Oct 28

VSC FAULT displayed then the car went into protect mode (no power above approx 2000rpm)

Now have been told by Lexus its the VGR valve.

Now I have to pay wait for it .........£640 !!!!! for the replacement.

The funny thing is I could see this

No more investigating for me.

Got the 22dd 2006

the reg is not the same

The lexus is back from the dealers

The EGR VALVE has been replaced

Cost £500!!!!!!!

The car is just out of warranty by 3000miles and by one month!!!

But what a difference.

Its like a new car.

It pulls from way down to all the way up.Very smooth.

Loads of grunt ...now feels like 180+ BHP.I can now over take at will!!!!!

Sixth gear now works from way below 60mph

I had a run from Cheltham to London.Half A roads and half motorway.Amazing drive for a diesel.

got to agree about the deisel thing, the 220 was my first and last diesel, although i do have 8 renault master vans at work,

and not had any problems with them unlike the lexus

i think it would be great if someone could do an egr valve removal post with step by step photos and advise on any gaskets that need to be pre-orderd i think this would be a great help to many owners of 220s on this site :)
