During the holidays I had a power loss under relatively heavy acceleration that lasted until I shut the truck off and re started it. Nothing since then, but there seems to be a lot of failures with the Job 1 EGR's.
I have a Job3 and on Friday Jan 22, I had a new EGR Valve and housing installed (I was told it was a newer version). It was ordered on Jan 4th and came in on Jan 15th. There were three trucks waiting for them. My truck lost power and cruise control wouldn’t work. When I shut off my truck and started it later, it had power again and I drove it to the dealership. There were no warning lights but the dealer said that it had error codes and ordered the parts. The other trucks were towed there and didn’t regain their power. A Vender posted on this forum that they were having delays in getting these parts, since mine was covered under warranty, I didn’t ask him the price.

I replaced mine a couple of days ago. The truck threw a check engine code. Ford wanted $ 125.00 to tell me what the code was. I took it to Auto Zone and they told me what the code was for free. They said it was the ERG valve but that the truck was to new for them to have replacement parts. I got one from Dickerson Ford in York,SC for $304.75. I would have ordered one on line for $176.19 plus shipping at Your Premiere Source for Ford Truck Parts and Accessories but I needed the truck up and running.
I used a copper pry bar and hammer to work it out.
I broke the EGR valve into but I was lucky that the housing was not damaged. I probaly should have used pentrating spray and let it sit for an hour or two.
My truck is Job 1 and the EGR valve had cooliant running through it. The newer style EGR valve has been redisigned and DOES NOT have the cooliant running through it. It took me about 30 minutes to replace it. The only hard part will be getting the ERG valve out of the housing. If you break the housing you can order another one at the above listed website fairly reasonable.

Thats good to hear its that cheap. It sounds like it should be replaced every so often as preventative maintenance. Twice after the new Edge programmer mine stuck open and threw codes. It throws a huge plumm of smoke when the EGR is partialy open. It has worked the past few thousand miles but I feel like it will return. But if it is that easy than I am thinking just replace it once in a while?????????
I just had to replace EGR and Housing. The truck died when I tried to crank it at my hunting lease. Check engine light came on and the truck would only run on 2 or 3 cylinders. Called Ford Roadside assistance to tow it. I had to wait two days before I could take the wrecker to the truck due to high water in the creeks it had to cross. Wrecker operator and roadside assistance person were great. Dealer was out of EGR's and had to wait for one to come in. Truck is fixed now and best of all, it cost me nothing because the warranty covered everything (parts, labor, tow). The new EGR is a different design than the old one. Maybe we need to carry one in the glovebox like we used to carry the CPS.
Which warranty covered it, bumper to bumper or motor? Just wondering because I've got 39k on mine now.
When I called Ford Roadside Assistance, the lady looked at all of the warranties and told me how much coverage I had left on each one (bumper to bumper/engine/emissions, etc). She couldn't tell me if the EGR was covered under engine warranty or not because we didn't know for sure what was wrong at the time. I just told her what had happened and that the check engine light was on and that I had 27,000miles on the odometer. She had all the other information from the VIN. When I picked it up at the dealer, the truck service manager just gave me back my keys and said it's all taken care of. Have a nice day. I love it when things work like they're supposed to. I'm happy with the service even though I was without the truck for 6 days.
Any idea what the cost is to replace the EGR. I have an 08 Job1 and would like to have it replaced prior to it leaving me stranded on the highway somewhere. It's too cold to be stuck in a truck.
I just had my 2008 EGR replaced, was covered under warranty (5/100). Initially, the part (EGR housing) was estimated with a 3 week delivery time! The dealer found one sooner, but still I was out of truck for a week and a half.
Had my radiator replaced within the last two months as well.
