I am here in Malaysia

As it turns out the complete Adblue system is falling from leaking to stuck open EGR and so on.

Fixing adblue issues are costing me £3k

Delete EGR/DPF/Adbule will cost me £1k

Mechanic say Adblue problems may recur as diesel quality not good in Malaysia, but he also says delete can have other issues such as soot and thick smoke on high RPM and something he cant guarantee comes along.

NO strict laws here in Malaysia for emission control so I could do delete if I want to take that rout. Now I am stuck between a rock and hard place.

Dont know what to do.

Please advice if anyone of you have any experience. I dont as this is my first diesel car.

Thank you.

Hi, Deleting egr is not good idea. I will suggest your own research on youtube a bit before you do that. Please explain what the car is doing during driving do you have hesitation, jerking not. Also have you done diagnostic to check the codes? Egr problems are difficult but you can fix. First egr in most if not in every car is connected to with egr cooler, throttle and intercooler. From my experience if that egr system do not work properly you can have 1 million issues for which you will think those issues are not related. I am speaking from experience because I have just solve 2 year old problem which refer to egr but actually the problem were the intercooler hoses.

Hello Supernova11,

The car is already gone to mechanic to delete the EGR/ADBLUE/DPF and all. I imported this 2017 AUDI Q7 TDI from UK, the car had adblue warning not going away beside that I filled the tank with 20litr adblue. Then the EGR suck open code came in with ECL. Meanwhile I spoke to quite a lot of mechanics around Kuala Lumpur for the fix and pretty much everybody including a German guy who runs a popular shop advised me to delete the system as the quality of diesel in Malaysia is not the best, everybody says you fix this today and the problem will comeback tomorrow. So, I took a bait and left the car to be free of this headache. They also warn me about DPF might choke overtime but that will be an easy fix.

I appreciate your help in this regard.

Many thanks

Hi Kammiqazi,

Am living in Malaysia too.
Am having the same problem as you face.
After checked by 2 workshop, they tell that it is Adblue Pump Sensor failure.
The repair cost is one thing, but the uncertain & high occurrence frequency is something I can’t really accept. Both workshop told me about same thing your mechanic mentioned to you.

Am now also wondering should I choose the delete or repair the failure pump.
Please share me your experience after you delete the entire DEF/DPF/SRC system.
Thank in advance.

None whatsoever.

What car did you import and where (what shop) did you bypass the adblue? I am looking for a good audi mechanic in KLCC area.

Gentlemen, can i comment or ask Q?. Adblue is used on egr or is it scr? If i am to fix your troubles, i will install our invention at the air input and your emissions will be clean. However, i am not sure if our devices are allowed in your country. We had installed around 400-600 devices in our country and the smog is gone in a few secs.

I do not like egr design coz u have to introduce ur output back to the engine to clean ur input! wt! Anyway, u will not see our device for several months coz a uk company want to finance the manufacture of our device in singapore! tnx
