Will EGR delete throw a CEL in 2004.5 (March 2, 2004) Excursion

I am getting ready to install an EGR delete in my truck along with a new oil cooler and coolant filter.

I will be flushing with Restore and Restore+ and going with ELC instead of the Ford gold that is in it now.

Truck is new to me and bone stock.

I am not running any tunes (no tuner budget).

My EOT and ECT run about 8-10 degrees apart now, even on 90 degree Texas days.

Thanks for the insight. I have read that Excursion's sometimes got older parts and engines than regular Super Duty trucks.

It will not throw a code. But if at all possible I would love to talk you out of doing a coolant flush on your system. What you are gonna do is break loose all the tiny pieces of junk and then turn your oil cooler into a coolant filter. I would bet you a $100 if you do the flush your delta's will go outta site.

I am trying to get the truck ready to pull my 32 ft 7800 lb trailer to Canada in late June. Everything I read says to ditch the Ford gold and use a Cat approved ELC.

Should I just do a swap with the distilled water and no Restore? Once I have run 16 gal thru then go back w/ ELC?

What I would do is install a coolant filter first off. Drain the old Ford Gold out and replace with fresh Ford Gold. Its reeley not bad coolant if changed out in suggested times. The system is running fine and s long as it is maintained you've got time on the clock. Yes your gonna have to keep a eye on it but depending on maintenance and miles it could be way down the road before you need to go deep into it.

this man's giving you good advice

all too often doing a hard flush causes a lot more grief than just draining and refilling with Gold. If your temps/deltas are good, I would just put fresh gold in it and roll on

I avoided an egr code when I did the egr cooler delete in my truck. I just left the egr in there and left it plugged in. It's only opening and closing like it did before. It just doesn't have any exhaust gas going through it anymore.
