egr delete advice needed !!

egr delete advice needed!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So today my truck started to stumble and almost quit when i let of the throttle and then step on it again. The check engine light came on so I stopped at the local garage and had them scan it. Big surprise it's the egr valve again!!! The dealer replaced it when it was under warranty so the local shop told me to see if they would warranty it. The local shop thought there was a requirement to warranty emission parts for 8yrs 80,000 miles but the dealer says no. I asked the dealer if he had ever done a egr delete. He said they dont do them and that some of there customers had done them to the trucks and had problems afterwards. Are there any potential problems that a egr delete can cause?or does the dealer just want to keep slapping a new one in everytime it gets plugged up? Is it good to delete the egr cooler to? The local shop is willing to do the install. They have worked on all my vehicles for well over 20 yrs and are very good mechanics although they arent really a Diesel shop. If I provide the kit they will install it and still put a inspection sticker on it without this emmision junk.Is one kit any better than another? I would prefer the simplest route to make this truck reliable. I know this is alot of questions but any advice anyone can offer would be most appreciated !

I haven't ever heard a major problem with it, only problems I have heard of is that it will run a dtc without custom tunes but some people don't have any problems running a delete with a stock truck, and I don't see how it could hurt the engine, it's giving it cleaner air and keeping the coolant out of ur combustion chamber. Sounds like the dealer wants ur money to me

I've never heard of a problem with an EGR delete on anything. Sounds to me like they're just trying to take you for a ride. Get a good delete kit and make your PowerStroke happy.

thats what I thought now I just need advice on what is a good kit to get and if I should delete the cooler too. Can you do one without the other? I would like to do it the simplest way possible but I am willing to do additional work if it will provide more long term reliability. Any suggestions anyone?

The oil cooler I wouldn't delete with a kit, they are about 2g... If u gave the money do it, I took mine apart and cleaned it, the egr delete kit I would go with is from liberator or rcd, but there is one like rcd on eBay for 300 from sinister diesel

now the water in fuel light came on to so I had the fuel filters changed I guess there was some junk in the lower filter including what looked like algae.that cant be good. we took the two bolts out of the egr but couldnt get it to come out and didnt want to break it with out anything to replace it with so we cleared the egr code to shut of the check engine light off. now it is still stumbling but not as often and theres no white smoke and the engine light is staying off. i think i would like to do the egr and egr cooler delete but Im not sure if maybe i just got some bad fuel and thats whats causing the stumbling ? what should I do next? I was thinking of trying to run the tank down low and then refill it with fresh fuel and maybe some additive

Yep, I tried to get a oil cooler gasket... I cant get just the gasket u have to buy the kit the kit is 360. Good old FOMoCo, put some sea foam
in the fuel filter on top of the engine, it will clean out all the crap in ur fuel and poor the rest of it in ur tank
