Pressure test to see if head gaskets are blown. Get a new oil cooler and egr delete. Flush and fill with CAT EC-1 rated ELC coolant. Install coolant filtration system. Clean turbo if needed while it's off. EGR delete won't help if oil cooler is clogged with crappy gold coolant.

Good luck.

Your welcome.....I would definitely still install the coolant filter because it will help to prevent the engine oil cooler from plugging up. Even if the egr is deleted or bypassed its still just as important. The coolant passages in the engine oil cooler are extremely small and because they are small the cooler actually behaves as a filter trapping small particles/debris/silicates in the coolant. Eventually the oil cooler gets restricted/plugged up and causes problems. If you add the coolant filter into the system and change it regularly the oil cooler wont get so much debris trapped in it and the oil cooler will operate correctly for a longer time. The coolant should be changed/flushed regularly too. The coolant filter kits are in the $120 to $200 range depending on where you shop. They are simple to install. If having one installed while doing the coolers or head gaskets most techs wont charge you much (if anything) to install it while he is doing the repair.

So, are you going to have "your mechanic" fix it, or the dealer that diagnosed it? Just curious, what are they quoting your for parts and labour to repair, if you don't mind sharing?
