EGR Rupture...

... started having to add a couple gallons distilled water every day . My DJ's plug in SCT gauge would put my coolant at 220, fan would engage (whirring sound). Add coolant, be back to normal. Set er back to stock, still lost coolant. Drove the 400 miles home, adding coolant, dropped it off at the Ford shop, they diagnosed the egr being ruptured, replaced it under warranty less my deductible.
Question, will the EGR delete prevent this from reoccuring???

Yes, if it's deleted, not just blocked.

So will the EGR cooler bypass. Once that is done, the EGR cooler is simply another piece of tubing for your coolant.

if you just block the cooler off then no it won't prevent it from reoccuring. If you go with firstcoastdieselperformance's (a true complete egr delete kit) kit then yes it will prevent it from ever happening again.

Is this a question of semantics? Blocking the exhaust feed into the cooler WILL prevent this from recurring. The coolant by itself does not contain enough heat or pressure to rupture the EGR cooler. It's the exhaust heat and pressure that ruptures these things! Sheesh!!!!

Some guys have still had EGR cooler problems after blocking off the exhaust because there EGR cooler was already damaged or starting to crack prior to blocking it off. And it should still get very hot at the spot where the exhaust is blocked off. The only 100% way of it not happening is not having an EGR cooler at all.

I agree!! Pain in the ARSS though, I have all my stuff, just actually haven't started taking stuff off yet.

it's not likely but it could rupture from heat again...since it is still there. From what I've read in some of Adam's posts the heat can still transfer through the "block off plate".
