EGR Cooler-06'

I am replacing mine as we speak. I have an 06' with 85,000. I was blowing white smoke and had some hessitation at low speeds. I initially thought I had come across some bad fuel/gelling/biodiesel. But I could not clear the error code once I got good Fuel in there and changed fuel filters.

I flushed my cooling system this summer in hopes I would avoid this problem, b/c my neighbor had to replace his. Now I'm in the same boat......not sure how to avoid this problem.
