Hi All, Let me first say that I'm somewhat new to the forum. I currently have my truck in the shop for the secened time in two weeks. First time was in Canada where the truck started blowing massive amounts of white smoke. Had it towed into Ford where it was diagnosed as a fouled EGR and replaced with a new one. Three hundred miles later and back in the US, truck started acting up, no smoke this time, but a loss of power while starting off. I made it into another Ford dealer and once again the Tech showes me a fouled up EGR along with a small pile of some sort of oily,sandy grit looking stuff in the intake, he states that he does'nt no where or what it is. My only responce is can we look further, I'd like to know what is causing this problem so as we can fix it. Three days have goin buy and I get a call and their suggestion is to install an EGR bypass kit, I don't have a clue what all this will mean to the function of the truck, will I see higher exhaust temp's ? and will additional problems jump up?
I should also mention that the truck has the Banks Six Gun system including the larger intake and larger exhaust (all of which was present when I purchased). I run the truck on the #1 setting as I understaned this is the stock setting. I also pull a fifth wheel trailer and pyro teperatures generally run on average 700 to 1000, occationally hitting 1100 deg. depending on the pull conditions. As you can see by my sig, the truck is an F-550 and is built to haul much larger rigs than I'm pulling.
I guess the real question that I'm asking here is about the EGR Bypass/DELETE
, Im stuck on this one!
