6.0 egr cooler delete

if my egr cooler is bad will a delete kit fix this problem? not sure if it is that or a head gasket but at this point that is way cheaper. no antifreeze in oil but have missing coolant, dampness in egr valve, billowing white smoke and some overheating but cools down really quick. any ideas?

Sounds like a cooler issue,yes a delete will replace a bad egr cooler, but wont fix a bad head gasket or plugged oil cooler. You should service the oil cooler and stc fitting at the same time.

It's not bad it will be time consuming your first time,but if you work on stuff alot, you can do it, do your homework on the site, you will be glad you did, tonso' good knowledge on here. My buddy does em' in a Few hours but he is a psd tech,and does 'em everyday,in a dealership,the avg. Guy with his own tools prolly about 6-8 hours,your biggest problem will likely be frozen or rounded off turbo bolts. Have some portable heat around for the up pipe bolts. I put the dicad solutions kit on mine and have had no issues, $135 on ebay or order direct from them. Super fast shipping too! There are many kits available.

Replace the stc fitting on the hpop,i had a new pump installed in mine and an oil cooler, i would do the oil cooler and the hpop stc fitting while you are in there. You can do a hard chemical flush before you start, then replace the parts, do a mild water flush after the job, then add your elc coolant. The next best thing would be to add a coolant filtration system before you refill your new system with elc coolant. Good luck !

I did my first EGR delete yesterday. Took me and a few friends 7 hours. It's not easy to get at some of the bolts. The up-pipe required a torch. Lol. Other than that everything came out alright. PB Blast the hell out of the bolts the night before. Helps a ton!
