My truck is at the dealer with egr issues now. It's an 08 with 54k miles. I figured I was good till atleast 100k miles before I had issues with this truck I only bought it 2900 miles ago grr. I plan to do egr delete but was waiting till summer because I jut spent a bunch on tuner and exhaust didn't even get to put it on lame... I thought I bought a ford not a dodge

Your EGR issues are probably because of lack of maintance on the coolant system.

Your cap is probably shot and therefore it is puking. Your coolant is low so it is sucking air. Leave it that way too long and you will start cavitation in the front cover...then you have coolant in your oil.

Low coolant also leads to egr cooler failures.

So as you can see it is not a pavment princess requirement but a maintance requirement.

I have 76K on mine and just over 1900 hrs. Most of it towing miles...heavy towing.

Take care of you coolant system and it will take care of you.

To the guys wanting to do EGR deletes. I did it on mine and gained around 2 mpg, smoother running, and less worries. ALWAYS DO THE EXHAUST BEFORE YOU DO THE EGR. If you do an EGR delete before a DPF delete, it'll frig the DPF system in bad ways and will lead to major DPF problems that could cost you $$$$$ in either the engine or the filter itself.

As seen in this pic too, when you do an EGR delete, not only to you have more engine compartment space from being rid of the coolers, but you also get rid of the tee in this little ole line and it plums just the main line to the bottle then. No tee means less places to leak Just a random fact

topped off coolant today so i will keep an eye on levels in my degas tank. i Also took a rag and cleaned all the dirt off my hoses and caps. The truck has way more power with the new egr valve. Has anyone removed one from thier 6.4 yet by themselves and do you really need a special tool. i was too lazy to do it myself since the valve is $325 from local parts store. Cost me double to let the dealer do it with parts and labor.

EGR Valve "Unplug"?

Plumes of white smoke, a $157 traffic citation (chased down by three motorcycle cops) for "excessive exhaust", a little research on the internet and I ran across this: Remove the EGR Valve Bad for Your Diesel Engine? which suggests simply unplugging the EGR valve (as option 1)

I have the new style EGR (2009 Ford F250 6.4L) without coolant lines. The "unplug" fix seems to have solved the problem (of the white smoke at least).

Could it be this simple?

My concern, obviously, is that I don't want to do any damage to the engine.

Will this work/be okay in the long term, or should I get the EGR replaced when I have the cash?

Any advice much appreciated.

Alex
