starvin for air??
Got a 2005 F350 that is now 3 years old. About a year or so ago (at 50,000 miles) I got a recall notice from Ford about an EGR valve problem. Took it to the dealer and they did what they do -I assume cleaned or replaced. After getting the truck back I felt that I noticed 3 things: 1-more turbo lag, 2-less power when towing, 3-a bit less fuel mileage. Took it back to Ford and they said there were no codes so they did nothing. I have since learned that BG makes a contraption that will clean the EGR before too much carbon builds up starving the truck for air. I have 2 questions:
1 - has this EGR thing been a normal problem that Ford has not admitted to being a problem?
2 - has anyone heard of or seen the BG equipment in use and what were your results?
I have some literature on this thing but don't want to shelve out the $1200 to buy one if it isn't going to help me. Although the truck runs down the road fine, it tows like a gasser. My trailer only weighs 6000lbs and you'd think it weighed twice that much. I live in Colorado so I need all the air I can get.
