Ok, somebody help me out with this. I have had my truck for nearly 8 years. 7 1/2 of those i have had my EGR
unplugged. 6 1/2 of those I have had my EGR
deleted, and I did it for $1.25. The egr
cooler has a problem with failures after multiple heat cycles and when it fails, it leaks coolant into the intake. Its got two openings, one in the back from the exhaust, and one in the front going to the intake. I took it off, Cut out and welded the up pipe, (not necessary) and stuck a freeze plug in both ends. Been that way for 6 1/2 years. Conversing with a guy who makes EGR
deletes the other day he tells me, that won't work??????
Ok, why? Lets say the EGR
cooler fails, they fail on the inside leaking in to the intake right? Mine has a freeze plug there, it can't leak into it, nor can it leak out the back side. if it leaks, it simply fills the EGR
cooler up, but its contained by the freeze plugs on each end. It simply becomes a reservoir. Its also still there in case DOT or your state does an inspection. Someone please tell me where my flaw is, because I certainly can't see it and I like the 1.25 plus my time price.
