I stopped doing just coolers if egr failed because of come backs. If egr failed just spend the $$ do it once and right, will cost less in the long run

Trucks only got 90k, just used to check fields it will be Hardley drove more then 8k a year. So you don't think a egr delete, and new oil cooler will do the trick?

I have been quoted roughly $1500 for labor with egr delete and buying the oil cooler from him. How much more an I looking at for gaskets and head stud install?

Re: Bad EGR cooler, and Oil cooler? Possible head gasket?

head gaskets are 22.1 hours we charge 86.10 hr that's 1902.81 labor for head gaskets. When doing head gaskets every part installed now is one less thing to replace later. 1500 for ford oil cooler fluids and delete is about right. They are charging 1500 for labor its a rip off oil cooler is 8.6 hrs we normally charge 10hrs labor the extra time 1.4hrs is to clean the turbo and install the up pipe

Yes $1500 was with me buying a oil cooler from them, but my $150 egr delete kit I bought seperate. He is installing a new up pipe for that price. I think it may just be a bad oil cooler my coolant temp is only 185, but when I take the cap off while its hot there is a steam that comes out, I'm sure it's from my EOT too high

Anyone else got advise? I Don't really want to do the studs and gaskets at the moment, it will be easily drove.

So if I'm at 10hrs of labor for egr delete, and oil cooler, you think I could get gaskets and studs done for another 12 hours so roughly another $1700 time you buy studs for $400-450
