W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
For those who haven't seen this already, I thought I'd post the final generation of the mod that's installed on my car currently:

Here's the schematic:

[Image: EGRDefeat.jpg]

The two components soldered together:

Covered in heat shrink tubing:

Soldered in place:

[Image: P9060094.jpg]

And some foil to protect the wiring when applying the final heat shrink tubing:

[Image: P9060095.jpg]

That's it!

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
This is a great post.
What is the difference between this and the old one? I still have the old one installed and its working fine.
Is there not a mistake on the drawing as it state Diode to Green and resistor to yellow but it seems the other way around on the picture? Again I know nutting about electronics.

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Nice catch, Olivier. It is true that the components are reversed from the drawing but in the case of the resistor, it doesn't matter the order. What's important is that the stripe on the diode points to the green/gray wire.

As far as a difference between this and the previous designs, I re-connected the EGR transducer and eliminated one of the resistors. The effect is exactly the same, I just simplified the circuit.

Hi Raf. Some version of this might work but the ECU pins and wire colors are probably very specific to this particular engine.

Hi, I don't think it will work for the 605/606.960. Only 605/606.962 turbo.

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Good thread for me - I have P1404 error. It is definitely not a transducer issue - I changed it - no difference.

I connected 5v power pin of the maf plug with com pin of the plug-error changed to p1401 - maf sensor.
Ah-forget to mention that my g-wagon (606.964) goes into limp mode after few minutes. So I try to make ecu live without maf and erg Smile)) I physically blocked erg pipe already as local ecological standards allow even more severe emission wise cars to drive

Any recommendations? My maf plug is 3 pin one-power, "-" and com pins

The 606.964 (the version of the 606 in the G-class) doesn't have a MAF. It has an EGR lift sensor. The circuit shown in this thread won't work for that motor. I designed a circuit that removes the lift sensor (and the vacuum modulator) from the ECU, but is isn't very simple. Reply to this thread it you are interested in it.

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Hi, please can anybody just clarify before I do this.

Does the OM606.962 come fitted to the W210 E300? (which I have) EDIT: Im guessing so as your username is E300TSC lol..

And does this allow the removal of the EGR actuaton hardware, as opposed to leaving the electronics in situ and just blocking the EGR flow?

Thanks in advance, Harry.

Yes, the OM606.962 is the version in the E-class. It is the only version with the MAF in the air filter. Implementing the fix shown above should allow you to completely the EGR h/w. I'd start with pulling the electrical plug on the vacuum modulator for the EGR. It is possible that the engine computer is checking for some minimum current flow through that path.

I need to implement the fix too, my wife's E300 turbo is pretty crudded up with EGR goo.

you are right - it is a egr sensor embedded into the erg lift valve, not maf.

I would appreciate you share your ideas how to bypass egr and its parts in the ecu

Hi! I'v read the post about egr shut off by wire and i have the same problem on my g-vagen with 606.964 engine .... carsoft reads 1404 error....
I physycally shut off egr, but sometimes system goes to limp mode, i think the problem is in valve and its position sensor....please help me with a scheme for elecric shut off this system....Best regards)))

I can switch off EGR and MAF sensor (if present) in ECU software. Then you can remove EGR valve.

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Afternoon Everyone,
In relation to this EGR mod., I presume you leave the vacuum and electrical connections connected??

Is there any danger of damaging the ECU by fitting this resistor/diode mod. across an input and an output of the engine ECU?

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Did this on a customers car ( dear god i know a CUSTOMER!! ) The mod has worked flawlessly for over a year.

The motive for the mod was as follows. The car had a slight part throttle hesitation that was very hard to track down. Finally i disconnected the EGR valve and the issue was gone. The spring rate of the EGR valve had degraded after 300,000 + miles and allowed the valve to open to far under the same vacuum conditions allowing to much exhaust flow for the same given vacuum signal.

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Hello I think I have confused myself,
I have a 1998 E300TD, 606.962, I blocked the vacuum actuator pipe to the egr and I'm happy to leave the egr solenoid in place as its small and does nothing.

So if the maf is the only thing controlling the egr is rather delete that because of the compressor inlet flow restriction of course, over on peach parts there is a tutorial involving a 22k resistor between yellow and blue wires to the maf connector but I tried that and it stopped my turbo spooling (held wastegate open I presume).

But the mod detailed in this thread is only for egr solenoid removal correct?

Very good pictures, good circuit diagram.

However, I miss a verbal explanation of the mod, its rationale, the benefits, etc.

This appears as post number 1. So I asume it is.

Is there a verbal explanation already posted? If so please give me the link. This is a very nice mod and many would like to learn here.

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Ah,

This modification sends a signal from the egr (when the ecu actuates it) to the maf sensor so the output from the maf to the ecu is modified so the ecu thinks it's egr activation has given a corresponding reduction in flow through the map sensor (as the exhaust gas takes up air space) to verify the egr has operated.

Therefore map sensor can be unplugged.

**just in case anyone (like me) was unsure**

Aha!

Awesome, implementing this tomorrow..

In don't think you can unplug the MAF. That will throw a code for other reasons. What you can do is stop the EGR from operating, either by blocking the port, or putting a BB into the vacuum line, or both.

Interestingly I blocked the egr vac hose months ago and have had no codes, at least no change in engine performance, I havent got STAR to plug in.
I think this is what Mantahead did to delete his MAF Sensor no?

I have the same engine in my W210 (OM606.962) and I would like to get rid of my EGR valve too, just because I think that its not good for the engine.

Who has done it - could please answer some questions, like:
Is the wiring diagram in this topic the correct one (1st post)?
Have you disconnected the vacuum hose from the solenoid to EGR or have you completely disconnected the solenoid valve?

DIsconect the vacuum hose first, if nothing happens (limp home mode etc).

Then just leave it like that, no need to do anything else.

It seems to me that only the american market cars go into fault if you disable EGR via vacuum hose disconnection.

All OM606 turbos had monitored EGR systems. The USA system looked for a change in intake flow. The Euro system monitored physical EGR valve lift. If you just remove the hose it will soon drop into limp more.

First figure out which EGR monitoring system you have. There are different fixes for them.

What do you mean by two monitoring systems?
I can only remember that the EGR circuit in my car only has the EGR solenoid valve which electrically opens the vacuum when the ECU tells it.
There is no monitoring device or a sensor inside inlet manifold and even in the EGR valve housing.
It should be an European car, produced in 1997 and transported to estonia from germany.

I can only remember that the EGR circuit in my car only has the EGR solenoid valve which electrically opens the vacuum when the ECU tells it.
There is no monitoring device or a sensor inside inlet manifold and even in the EGR valve housing.
It should be an European car, produced in 1997 and transported to estonia from germany.
Is there a wire going directly to the EGR? That is the lift sensor. If not, is there a wire going to a sensor at the air filter box? That is the MAF sensor.

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
My euro model E300TD has no physical EGR lift sensor, as per all euro models, it has a MAF sensor to monitor airflow change due to EGR operation.

However as mentioned I removed the vacuum hose and it didn't go into limp after several months of hard driving, I then installed the above MAF wiring mod just in case it went into limp when I was far from home.

What I'm saying is mine worked fine for some reason, 1998 UK model.



Installed:

OM606/722.6, big IC, W220 brakes.
Planned:
DIY manifold, compound, 722.6 controller, built IP.

Has any ECU tuning been performed?

Completely factory, though I didn't have STAR so I couldn't check if a code had been raised, there was certainly no loos of performance / limp etc. Who knows.. Thats why I'm saying try it, ign/ off/on resets limp so no harm done.

Interesting. My experience is the opposite. I've got both a USA 1998 E300 Turbo and a Euro 1996 G300 Turbo. Both will go into limp if any part of the EGR system fails to respond. On the G300 I've built a circuit that electrically simulates the function of the EGR lift sensor. But it is more complex than what is claimed to work on the USA / MAF based system.

As you have been down there, and you own these engines for some time, maybe someone can help me. Question being, is vacuum operated wastegate on OM605 closed at idle? Mine is open (minimum duty cycle at proportional valve), I am new to mercedes, so either they really tought it throught and turbo sits chilling until its needed, or its broken. Big Grin It was driving like 50kW, cleaning out MAP sensor line helped, but to have my mind right I would need to know if that WG is normal or it is in limp mode. thx in advance gents.

No idea of how the OM605 works, but the OM606 has the wastegate pulled closed at idle. When in limp mode, it lets go of the wastegate at all times (including idle).

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Well according to that, its is in limp mode for sure. Thanks for reply.. now to harder part of fixing it. That engine is literally stupid when it comes to management, it only have MAP-which is good so I dont know what to look for anymore. Man that standalone ECU can´t wait any longer. Big Grin

And some foil to protect the wiring when applying the final heat shrink tubing:

That's it!

Can you please explain why this mod is better than EGR delete? Some people say that EGR is even good for performance! What does yr experience says?

EGR good for performance? who told you that? It's to reduce Nox at cruising speed. Redirecting hot non oxygen gasses to the intake is never a good idea Big Grin It has nothing to do with performance. At full load the EGR is switched off.

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
Taking up and old thread - will it be needed to block the vacum to the egr, and also the exhaust when doing this mod? And will blocking vacuum and exhaust do the same thing?

RE: W210/OM606.962 EGR Delete
How does that article contradict anything that was said above? To summarize: EGR reduces NOx on all engines. However any fuel economy benefits are limited to throttled vehicles (gasoline). The benefits come from reducing the intake manifold vacuum that the engine has to work against by filling the intake manifold with inert combustion gasses.
