Driving with stuck EGR valve.
My truck was in the shop today for a routine maintenance and as usual they hooked it up to the scanner to see if it had any codes. Well sure enough it was reading a bad EGR valve and the guy pulled it and the o-rings were worn and it was covered in soot to the point it was stuck open. Is it safe to drive my vehicle like this? My mechanic said it was but I wanted to double check with the fourms.
He did however unplug the valve.
Ps. I have a person lined up to install a delete kit but I'm trying to decide if I should do oil cooler as well.
