an EGR failure could cause a headgasket failure or a week spot... if your gonna replace head gaskets then head studs would be a good idea

the EGR cooler and oil cooler are both huge factors in blown head gaskets the only two things your missing is heavy white smoke and empty coolant resvior... what happens is the EGR cooler will go out and leak and then cause the oil cooler to go out meaning the coolant and oil passages ways collide and coolant starts to mix with the oil then cylinders fill up with coolant after awhile the cylinders will get to hot and blow the gaskets..it all depends on how fast you catch the EGR cooler and get it fixed if you catch it and take care of it right away then iam sure you will be ok if you dont you will run into huge problems...and to know if the oil cooler bad to i think it has to be with 15-18psi iam not sure..someome will come in and correct me
