Default TDI Maintenance

I haven't has my TDI very long and it is my first,,,my question is.....is there any maintenance that needs to be done to fuel plenum? Such as cleaning buildup etc from it? How about cleaning egr valve for buildup,,,I am mechanical inclined but don't know much about these diesels,,,just trying to head off future problems. It is a 2013 model

With the introduction of Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel in 2006, the formation of carbon buildup in the intake manifold or EGR system is nearly eliminated. So the odds of needing to do some carbon cleaning are very slim
