About EGR Gasket
The Citan Mercedes-Benz EGR gasket functions to act as a sealant to the EGR valve, ensuring a tight seal is maintained between the EGR valve and the engine.
An EGR valve (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) is fitted to reduce a car's Nitrogen Oxide emissions. It does this by recirculating some of the engine's exhaust gas back into the engine as this helps to reduce the combustion temperature and therefore the amount of Nitrogen Oxide produced by the engine.
The EGR valve is located between the exhaust and inlet manifold usually on the back of the engine. Often made of rubber or an asbestos mix, sandwiched between the EGR valve and the manifolds, acting as a sealant, is the EGR gasket. The EGR valve is responsible for recirculating or re directing exhaust gases back into the engine through the inlet manifold. The EGR valve is generally controlled or regulated by pressure or VAC lines to ensure that it is opened and closed at the correct time.
The EGR gasket can become worn over time and if frayed, ripped, or falling apart it should be replaced as soon as possible. If there is a problem with the EGR system, the Check Engine warning light should illuminate on the dashboard. Signs of a faulty EGR gasket can include an engine that struggles when idling; a stuttering, shaking engine; an engine that is stalling; and a loss of power when accelerating. To be certain the exact cause of the fault is properly diagnosed it is always a good idea to seek the advice of your mechanic. When replacing this part, choosing to fit the Citan Mercedes-Benz EGR gasket will guarantee you get a part that is completely compatible with the make and model of your vehicle.
- That new car smell is always a delight, but a Mercedes owner gets to choose that smell. Perfume specialist Marc vom Ende created four different car smells for Mercedes Benz, called Sports Mood, Freeside Mood, Downtown Mood, and Nightlife Mood. They all smell a bit leathery.
- If you thought self-driving cars were all about Tesla, then it might surprise you to know that Mercedes Benz made an autonomously driving vehicle as early as 1995. It didn't gain popularity, but it became the foundation of the modern driving technology found in every Mercedes Benz.
- Most people think of silver when they think of a Mercedes, but that iconic colour was an accident. Just before a race in 1934, the white-painted W25 was found to be 1kg over the weight limit. The paint was quickly removed, the weight limit reached, and the car won the race.
- Karl Benz might have patented the design of his Motorwagen in 1886, but it was his wife who jumped behind the wheel first for a quick (as quick a 0.9hp will deliver) 120-mile tour through the countryside of Germany. Poor Karl didn't even know!
- In 1924, Mercedes Benz became the first car manufacturer to include brakes on all four of a car's wheels. Not long after, in 1931, they also added suspension springs to the corners of the Mercedes Benz 170.
