Missing bolt on Egr valve.

Hello, the other day I pulled my egr off my 6.0 to clean it off and one bolt got dropped. So now I only have one bolt holding it on. Is it ok to be driven until I can replace it? Please help this Diesel newbie out!!!!! Thanks

the EGR does locate itself pretty good so one side could work but it could still leak at the top gasket

how hard is it to find a bolt new or the dropped one ? unless it fell in the manifold ?

look inside the radiator cowl ? or under the manifold

Luckily it isn't in the manifold, it dropped off my screwdriver to the left of the egr. Now it is m.I.A. I just want to be sure I wont screw up my truck by driving it.
