Focus Mk1 TDDI - Hose from EGR to ?... splitted.

Day after i changed the cabin filter on my "new" Focus Mk1 1.8 TDDI,
i drove and was missing power.
It will accelerate but a bit sluggish.
After oil change, some driving in town with A/C i
felt the engine pulls differently.

I remembered from a thread about TDDI loosing power
that a sensor could be unplugged unwantingly so i took a look.

A small/thin hose running from the EGR to intercooler sensor (?not sure if that is?) was snapped/cut in two.


For illustration here a picture i found online of an EGR with that hose:




Here actual pictures of my case:










Where does it ends and what does it control?

Is it an easy job for a mechanic to fix it without looking
for dedicated OEM hose?

I had the impression the hose run very close around
the top element (EGR valve?) which was hot.
Could this damage the hose?

There is possibility that i somehow snapped the hose while
doing the polen filter or while i was trying to reach the
fallen screwdriver bellow the air filter ...


Thanks in advance.

Igor

Hello Igor!

I don't know what that sensor is, but I can assure you that the loss of power is due to that hose.
I had the same problem (but in my case, the hose simply was pulled out of that sensor).
The car would't pass 3500 rpm in 5th gear on the highway.
I have just plugged that hose back and the problem was solved.
I will do some research about that sensor. I am curious too about what it does.

Best wishes,
Andrei.

Hi Teodor!
Unfortunately, I can't help you with your problem.
Though I've heard that someone cleaned it with some kind of spray, without pulling it out from it's place.
I hope you will find this helpful.
