Coolant Leaking From Pass Side Uppipe...

Did a search, didn't find what I was looking for. So, I can see coolant leaking from the passenger side up pipe @ the flex joint. Is this normal??? I know it is not, but is this signs of a busted egr cooler? It leaks after the truck is shut down and sits a few minutes. No white smoke is present @ idle or when driving. runs a bit sluggish and gets warm like a sticking thermostat. Any help would be great, Thanks.

Could it be the coolant hose that links the oil cooler to the EGR cooler?

Have no idea. That would be an easy fix, no?

Sounds like your ERG cooler is leaking. When I bought my truck the ERG cooler was gone and it had leaked enough antifreeze into the exhaust to run out just before the cat. It also filled the exhaust manifolds and filled the cylinders that had open exhaust valves. I would pull the EGR valve and see if its wet.

if coolant is going that far, normally you will have white smoke, I would say you EGR cooler is on its way out..

you don't HAVE to run custom tunes to run any EGR delete kit, you will get a CEL with ANY EGR modification on the 05^ trucks, only reason people choose to run a tuner is to disable that light. Its not required though. Also, if you don't want the tuner to be a power adder, say you just want it to simply disable the CEL, that can be done too.

With that said we sell a EGR delete kit that we think is pretty nice...

Looks good, but I do not have 2 weeks for down time.
