I have been having an issue with my '07 6.0L
I was going up a hill last month, when suddenly my truck lost power, would not rev over 1200RPM and a large plum of black smoke came from the exhaust pipe. I had it towed home and plugged it into my tuner, got the code P0404, which is an EGR issue.
I rersearched and reviewed EGR solutions and decided to try cleaning the valve before going further. Now here is my issue.
I loosened the two 8mm bolts no problem. Unclipped the wire harness, exposing the black EGR cover. I used a plumbers wrench, as recommended, to attempt to wiggle the valve out of place, when the plastic wire harness cover snapped, leaving the valve in the engine and me holding the black top with the wiring receiver.
My question, can I get the EGR valve out now? its broken flush with the metal. Do I need to buy a replacement valve or can I just buy the broken harness? I'm at a complete loss and am not in a financial situation where I can take it to a shop... Any help or ideas would be very appreciated.
