EGR valve cleaning.

Thought I would be proactive and clean valve, No carb cleaner needed, freshly steam cleaned. Had oil cooler and egr cooler replaced 10k ago under warranty. Question is could it just be a loose hose? Delta never goes over 8 degrees. I know just delete egr and be done with it, however wife is done with this very needy truck. I think a girl friend would be cheaper.

you may just have a faulty EGR cooler, they will occassionally go bad without a reason

remember, ford parts warranty is 12month/12,000 miles
