    Treated her to an oil and filter change and cleaned the EGR valve out.

    This is what 190,000 miles makes the EGR look like!

    I have to agree with the diesel bashers after cleaning all that out and the bit on the engine side diesels are dirty!

    Good going Dave you're obviously taking good care of her so you'll pass 200k mark and way way beyond no bother

    157k here and climbing... albeit slowly. At my average yearly mileage... it'll be another 8.5 yrs before I hit 200k. the car will be 18 by then too.

    Nice! I very much hope to be reporting similar numbers! Just out of interest, have you ever had any work done on your cam chains?

    Think I've finally cured some annoying niggles that I've put up with since owning the car. Wish I had cleaned the EGR along time ago now!
