pulled egr valve, black sticky gunk!?

I pulled out my egr valve today to clean and inspect, I put my finger down the hole and the inside was caked with sticky gummy black soot, almost as if it was misted with coolant ? I'd say that's the sign of a leaking egr? the egr valve itself was replaced by me about 2 months ago after the other one had failed (factory) and the egr valve also had the sticky soot on it.

If you do a lot of idling or lots of short trips where your truck does not get up to a good operating temperature for very long can give you that. Park with the nose of your truck pointed down a hill and look in where the EGR valve was to see if there is any coolant pooling.

A egr delete is always a good investment for the 6.0 does you exhaust smoke any? If so that is a sign out of many.
