Code P0278

Well I finally did a EGR delete and Oil cooler replacement, the numbers are where they are supposed to be very happy with it so thank you all for all the help (NYC-F350, Nylyon, diablos30, PGreenSVT, and others that had many post on this issue). So now that I have this done I took it for a drive to check my delta then when I got back I checked my CTS and it had a few codes on it I knew I would get EGR ones but the one that is making me think is the P0278 which it says it is the #6 Cylinder contribution/balance does any one know what this is I checked my wires for the Injectors they where all cliped and on. So what could this be?

Thanks guys once agian.

BTW if it wasn't for NYC-F350 I would have been paying to much for dealer parts I had no idea that Tousley (which is a 30 min drive for me) is the cheapest around

If you dont have an engine miss or any other issues, you probably just got air in the hp oil or fuel system during the oil cooler installation, or carbon broke loose when the egr was removed and went through the cylinder. Either way if it is running fine you should be good.

Ok thanks for the insite on this now I did notice that the truck did do some pulseing when I first got it running after the egr cooler also new banjo bolts. I figure that it was air in the fuel. But after an not even 30 min drive when I came to a stop light it did very quick pulse barely notice it. I figure air is still in the system, or like what you said carbon shaking loose I know the manifold was dirty and the egr valve caked.
