Re: Egr dilemma

It's probably leaking out of your degas bottle onto the exhaust manifold and evaporating

Re: Egr dilemma

Check the Hose under the degas bottle for wear/cracks. They get brittle over time and could, like said above, be dripping onto the manifold and evaporating.

Re: Egr dilemma

If its boiling in the degas bottle, more likely then not, have a leak somewhere. What are your coolant temps? Do you have the upgraded Degas Cap? The older version had issues with malfunctions, from what I read users would over tighten them instead of the stopping at the single click. I think they are supposed to pop at 16psi.

Re: Egr dilemma

Should be able to run a pressure gauge. Just monitor pressure at idle and then give it a good run. Try to find small grades or give her a little bit on a straight away. Good Luck.

Re: Egr dilemma

Did you freeze plug the stock egr? No offense to you buts its common to have them fail when not done properly, your better off just getting a Bulletproof Diesel EGR Cooler. Limited Lifetime Warranty and a great track record, good replacement if your state looks for it during emissions.
