EGR cooler only?

Ok, figured out my egr cooler is bad. Took it to ford and they diagnosed bad egr cooler and bad headgaskets. This week ive been calling alot of shops and have been getting lots of different opinions. Some guys are betting that its a 95% chance its just a bad egr cooler, others are saying bad headgasket, so im in a predicament.

Cant decide if i should just replace egr cooler and oil cooler and save thousands of dollars, but run the risk of it being a bad headgasket also and then having to pay for the labor of them tearing into again.

5k for a headgasket job is really not in the budget right now, especially if its not really a bad headgasket. Im REALLY torn right now!

P.S. If any Oregon guys know a good shop let me know, thanks
