Quicky fix for leaking EGR COOLER??

Have a 04 with 309-k miles that was just perfect till last week and the orginal cooler started leaking. After driving the truck a half hour or so the smoke clears right up and as long as I am driving it there is zero smoke, but when I leave it idling for 10 mins or so the smoke comes back.

I was thinking about shipping it off any way cause its just an old farm truck any how... is there any quicky fix I could do just to trade it off?? I know it is not going to bring much because of the miles, being a regular cab and just a work truck but not interested in giving it away either.

EGR delete.... but a new cooler on ebay can be had at a reasonable price. You will get a lot less for it if the HGs blow because you didn't fix it!

Thanks for the reply. I used 1 33oz bottle of barsleak and patched the problem. As I stated this is a 300-k mile farm truck and is NOT worth spending much money on any way. Just sent it to the auction today and sold it for $2250.00 which makes me plenty happy.

so you ditched the truck because the EGR cooler ruptured? Good thing everyone doesn't do that, I wouldn't have a job
