EGR cooler

Have everything disconnected egr cooler moves around haven't hose yet.
Have bolts out that hold cooler in place, but cooler won't drop so I can pull it out. Any trick? Tried taping it with a hammer, lightly won't drop.

It fits into the intake manifold where the two bolts on the front are. Get a pry bar in there and pry it out.

Figure it's the o-rings holding it in.

Yeah. It's tight in there but it should drop out.

Ahhh... well good luck.... you could just pull the manifold off.... that in its self is a pain, but at least then you could clean that out.

Hopping to not have to too do that, have to get a different crow bar.
Good thing I have a lot of patience, going to try cutting the old hose.

Ok still can't get it out, so I called custom-diesel.

6.0L engines in van's have intakes closer to engine block.
So gonna pull intake, wish I would have known, probably in instructions, lost them. Guess I can't pry engine out from under intake.
Had I known I would have pulled intake right away.

I don't think there's room to get the EGR cooler down out of the intake without raising the intake some. There's a bunch of threads about people installing EGR delete kits and I've looked at a few, that's where I think I remember seeing that. I took my intake out and had a hard time getting it out until I had the EGR cooler mounts all unbolted, the o-rings are pretty stiff in the intake.

Intakes on vans are 4 mm thinner/lower enough to the block that cooler won't drop out.
Why you would make a different part for vans, 4mm why bother.
Any way intake is out being boiled out, last one they did he said it took 2 days to get it clean. Did find another oil leak at injector wiring through head. More parts & have to remove valve cover. Connection was all covered with oil, laptop showed an issue with #5
injector. It ran fine no misses, oil probably screwing up the signal. Found some more chaffing on wiring harness and a lot of rewrapped wires, hope they fixed them right.
So far what I hate is the oily tape mess. Patience, you need lots of patience. Now to order some more parts, pull & clean turbo & clean valley.
