Blown EGR cooler?

I'm pretty sure this is a blown egr cooler. Let me know what you experts think. I cleaned the vlave 6000 miles ago. Did not really notice a loss in coolant back has not been to long since I found a hole in my coolant tank.

Currently in process of installing MBRP 5" turbo back exhaust.

Re: Blown EGR cooler?

that picture is no real indicator
a slightly gooey substance is normal

usually you want to park it nose down for the night then look for an accumulation of coolant

Re: Blown EGR cooler?

I did have the rear jacked up about 1-2 feet for about 2 hours before i pulled the valve. I was told that this should be very dry and not wet/shinny. But my source could be wrong. Also i am 99% sure i have blown head gaskets... Anyway looks like ill be deleting the EGR system in the next few months hopefully. Is there any way to delete the valve and still allow the fan to operate correctly?

Mine looks like that (maybe not as wet) and it has never lost a drop of coolant. Never smoked, either.

leave the valve laying on top of the motor and leave it plugged in. That'll solve the fan problem.

Re: Blown EGR cooler?

agreed
if you have the fan issue that is the fix

and agreed the oily soot is what I have seen as normal

Re: Blown EGR cooler?

Even better than leaving the valve laying there, you can bolt it to the back of the cast intake elbow. There is a threaded hole already there (same size bolt as the egr valve). The valve will sit directly above where it was in the intake, looks clean, and still plugs in, no check engine light, and fan clutch operates like it should.

Re: Blown EGR cooler?

if you think you have cooler issues i would do a head pressure test.that soot really looks to be too wet.i personally think that you have other problems and if caught now could save you money per say.
