EGR Cooler

I was wondering if anyone else here had had or heard of cooler issues on the 6.7? Check engine light came on, truck to dealer, and tech says EGR cooler is plugged. They have new cooler ordered. They also said they did send info to Ford Eng because its the first one at that dealer they have seen with this problem. The build date is 4/10 and I bought it in May 2010, the truck has 40516 miles on it. Hopefully it is just a fluke, because stuff can break. Will shall see.

i have only replaced 2 sense these trucks came out. both trucks were cab and chassis models. both were boom trucks. which means they idle for long periods of time to run the pto to run the boom. both were pluged solid with soot. the pick up truck egr housing is aluminum. the cab and chassis model is cast iron. i realy dought that has anything to do with failure but i really think its just a fluke. i do not think these are going to have egr problems like the 6.0.

My service engine light came on yesterday. Went to dealer this morning. Code was for EGR valve and Ford Engineering told them to replace the valve and check the cooler. Truck has 5400+ miles on it so far. Hope this is not the start of something else. Sure would not to have to trade in an almost new truck for a DMax.

Update 2/8/13: Dealer was told by ford to replace the cooler and send it to them. Cooler was replaced and I will be picking up the truck this morning. I will be asking if there is something that I did or can do to not have whatever happened to take place in the future. Will add more when I return from the dealer.

Given that these would have a new cooler design and don't use silicate-based coolant in general like the 6.0's, I wouldn't expect to see the failures happen anywhere near as much. Faulty parts do occur from time to time, but the different coolant alone is probably enough to avoid epidemic failures like before.

I've seen a couple of plugged coolers on the powerstroke sites.

Did they say what caused it?

A couple is still better than every third truck a la 2004-2007, but I'm curious now. Since the coolant (largely considered the cause of the 6.0 cooler sludge) is different now, what would trigger a 6.7L cooler plugging up? Was there some other contaminant present?

I don't know...check out powerstroke.org. They didn't give any reason, just stated ford covered it Under warranty. It seems like it has gotten worse since winter hit, could have something to do with extended idling.

I am curious if those experiencing EGR valve and/or EGR Cooler failure are also using a diesel fuel additive on a regular basis?

I have a 9/10 build and have had cooler replaced. CEL came on and dealer said cooler bad, drive until part arrived. The CEL went off and then back on after a long trip. Replaced about 4 months ago and no problem since.

Just had mine done on 2/7. Check engine light came on went to the dealer they told me the cooler has to be ordered. I have 42k on the truck built date 4/2010 never added any type of additive to the fuel.
Before the check engine light came it felt like the truck was losing power.
Now with the new cooler installed seems to have more power.
The tech who did the replacement ask me if i do a lot of idling.This is the first real problem i had and hope no more in the future.
This is an awesome truck.

Didn't idle much.The tech told me to start to add additive to the fuel.
So not sure what to do at this point.
I had many Ford Diesels and never has to add any thing to the fuel.

If I am going to be sitting in one spot idling for and period of time (waiting on the wife to come out of Wal-Mart for example) I turn on the SEIC. I don't know if it help, but it does seem to eliminate the dieseling on that first hard throttle pulling out into traffic after an extended idle. I also seem to have fewer regen cycles doing this.

EGR Cooler/Check Engine Light

I had the same problem. Build date 05/10, miles 46000. Took to dealer, first they told me the EGE Cooler had to be replaced, but later said all that was needed was to update for the computer. When I asked what the update was the service consultant told me the computer was reflashed. That direction came from Ford to solve the problem, so he says. The problem with all this is on my paper work from the dealer shows "NO PROBLEM FOUND" in caps. I still don't know what the dealer has done to my truck nor do I really know what was done by Ford to make the check engine light go off. I will contact the service manager and update when I find more out. Also was told to replace my fuel filter, because during the multi point inspection "FOUND fuel filter to appear old" in the inspection report. Well at this dealer I just had both fuel filters replaced at 44,000 miles. Or did I. This all sounds bad. I live in Central Florida, are there any good dealers out their.
