helping friend. turbo boot, code problems

I dont have a 6.0 powerstroke so i dont know much on how to help him so i turn to you guys to lead me in the correct direction to help him.

He has a 04 and is having two problems.

1. Every now and then when pulling (20,000 lbs loaded) he blows of a intercooler boot and has to replace it on the road.

2. When driving to the store after pulling his trailer he always gets a check engine light. he says its usually the same thing and resets it by disconnecting the batteries. he says its egr sticking.

are these symptoms a common problem in your 6.0L diesels if so what is the common fix. and is there a key trick to check for codes on the dash like my cummins?

For the boot.......... I'd suggest buying new boots, a ccv mod, and cleaning all the IC tubing and IC, he shouldn't have a problem after that. OR, he could try removing the boot that keeps blowing (turbo to IC pipe I'm guessing), clean it real good with a degreaser, spray it with hairspray, let it sit until it gets tacky and then reinstall.

The EGR sticking code....... Don't know. It wouldn't hurt to pull the EGR valve and clean the crap out of it. Or just delete the whole damn system
