auto part stores sell these little chemical dip sticks that test for exhaust gases in coolant. would be a good place to start. also a headgasket pressure test would be cheap DIY. on the pressure test...
i read most should be around 11psi driving and if it gets above 16 psi bad juju.
also make sure the psi doesn't jump really fast. if its a slow rise over some time own road your good.
the egr cooler fails because of 3 things...
3. clogged oil cooler can cause reason 1+ 2. you need to find a good long hill and romp on it in 3rd to check your temps again.
