EGR Cooler - leak - advice needed
Hi there. I am new to the diesel world and am glad I found this site. I am driving a 2004 F250 Harley. It has 134,000miles on it. I just had the FICM and EGR valve replaced about 2 weeks ago in addition to a new gasket for the heater core. I took the truck back in to the shop b/c it was still leaking coolant and the wife was getting mad.
The shop called and informed me that the tube connecting the EGR cooler to the Oil cooler is leaking. to fix the leak is $1,000 (labor time getting access) OR $1,500 to do an EGR delete.
Advice would be greatly appreciated. From what i have seen on this site, the oil cooler should be addressed. The shop said i didnt even have to worry about it.
BTW - i use the truck as my daily driver, no towing at all.
Thanks in advance
