egr valve gasket

Where would I find the part number for the gasket and o rings for the egr valve? I plan on cleaning it out today. There's two o rings and one gasket right? Do you have to get them right from ford or can you pick them up at a canadian tire or napa type place?

screw that new gasket..just clean it and put it back together. no need for a new gasket.

if you really dont want to deal with it then do a egr delete. valve and all. life is alot better with arp studs and an egr delete

Is it possible you blew it because you ddin't replace the o rings???? What is the most economical block or delete available? Also what is the purpose of cleaning the valve I know people do it but why? So it doens't get stuck?

Not replacing the o-rings on an EGR valve will not cause an EGR cooler to fail. The most economical way to block the EGR cooler is to install a block-off plate in the EGR cooler flange. The most economical way to delete it is to fabricate your own cooler delete kit, (definitely not an easy job, however) There are also a few complete delete kits on the market, such as Adam's kit sold through Innovative. People clean the EGR valve to keep the carbon and soot out of it to eliminate the driveability and performance issues associated with a dirty valve.

no, because my egts get really hot and the cooler itself doesnt hold up to heat very well, i even had mine blocked and i still blew it.

I had my truck at the dealer and they told me I needed to replace my EGR valve. I am a capable wrench turner, so I plan on doing it myself. Is this something I should be able to do in my garage? Also mentioned I needed to replace the EBP sensor. That looks to be the easiest of the two. Any suggestions?
