have been told to replace banjo bolt gauze filter but i couldn't find one anywhere, i have also noticed a few other bodge it and scarper jobs on this van so could someone tell me whear it fits and how to get another one? the worst thing i have found is the sump gasket was put on with bathroom/kitchen silicone! which was put on in such an amount that bits of it had been blocking the gauze pick up in the sump!

any help would be appreciated.

kind regards.

ask ya self why was the pan took of in the first place

lack of servicing will cause sludge in the pan as well when you take the pan off inspect it before hand then go scrappers and get one if need be don't buy new it will cost a fortune

give more details of the van/car and ill dig some diagrams out for you

thanks for reply,

its a peugeot partner 1.6 hdi 90 on a 57 plate, the sump came off easily, the oil was bad but i have flushed the engine through and cleaned all sludge, also had the turbo return and feed pipes off and flushed them also, the pipe to the turbo was immaculate brand new with tag still on,
the gauze filter pick up line was blocked badly with crud and coke etc so have removed it and meticulously cleaned the gauze and the line, the whole engine was relitivly clean to say the oil was filthy, there were no deposits on the big ends or on rockers etc,

as for the turbo it was also immaculate, the reason for all of this is that the turbo blew and the bearing was split in two. havn't even checked the EGR yet as the rest of the bits have been very clean! the only thing i can think has caused it is that the gauze filter was blocked and that has led to the turbo running dry?

as for the banjo bolt filter, it was none existent!

i hope this info is usefull.

great will look into the EGR valve, its a wee bit of a fiddle to get into as its obstructed but i will give it a shot! i am a garden machinery mechanic so all this is very new to me! good fun to get stuck into even if its filled with electronics! when you say to fit a blanking plate i take it that then bypasses the recirculating process? will this not increase the heat in the turbo?

i love this van its been great but seeing as i have the turbo off i have decided to strip it down and service/overhaul it so i know a good job has been done, still cant get over the bathroom sealant in the sump though! was awful! thanks for you help.

the egr is at the back of the engine under the air box on the right hand side as you look/stood at the engine

conclusion

i am posting this as i have spoken to a few dealers etc who have notified me that there is no gauze filter in the re-placement banjo bolts from peugeot? so the oil is going to the turbo unfiltered except from the main oil filter?

seems odd, i can see there point in doing this however im wondering if i cant modify the filter in the banjo bolt to being a bit more coarse as the ones ive seen are so fine its no wonder they clog! folks can let me know what you think on this.
