EGR cooler is leaking if it's still installed. Don't continue to run it like that or it will push a head gasket.

Thanks Bryan.... can the cooler be changed out or the egr block-off kit be installed without removing the intake?? I am a very adept mechanic but I never have worked on or owned a diesel until I got this truck..... "Money-Pit" is her name but hopefully once everything is fixed it will be a good truck ??~!! LMAO!!

remove the valve first, just to confirm. only takes a couple minutes. if you see coolant in the intake plenum/on the valve, it's a done deal
