Holy Hell.

I could not agree more with scuffy828, just because they work at a dealership or whatever doesn't mean they know what they are doing. Who would go to all the trouble to pull an IPR valve out and who cleans them off??? What was he cleaning off? Your not thinking of the EGR valve are you?

I'd see if you could find the "special" socket for it (maybe through snap-on or????) but if you can't youll have to pull the turbo and use a wrench to take it out. If you do find the socket I usually just drop the degas bottle, take the ficm out and the intake piping and try to squeeze my mitts in there to get it out.

Here's my take on this thread........kaleb, I can't imagine why you would question Scuffy for being reasonable, he has absolutely no dogs in this hunt.......Scuffy does this completely without obligation and does not like to see people spending unneeded time or money.

I only interject my opinion because I get this same crap sometimes too....when the person doesn't even know the difference between a washer and a seat........it's just frustrating to try and give FREE info and get questioned.

But you do what you want....you sound pretty intelligent to me.

I see scuffy help more people on this site, along with some others. He knows his chit. Just as Choctaw said, giving free advice, and being questioned that you don't know what your talking about, is very irritating. Good luck to ya

I don't think anybody is mad, just confused way you wouldn't heed to suggestions . Unplugging your EGR should be ok, but it may trip a CEL. Mine has been turned off through my SCT since 4k miles (I have 22k now)

Hey bud, I'm not mad in the least bit.....as was said just a little confused. But thats OK.

I betcha Scuffy will tell ya the reason he dosen't post more is because of situations like this..........kinda sad if you ask me.

By the way glad you figured it out.

You can try to clean your EGR valve, or even better, REPLACE it. There is however, a new TSB that was just released to us dealer techs on January 5th of this year that now advises installation of a baffle. Looking at the workshop manual procedure for an '08 model year E-series equipped with a 6.0L, it looks like a plate of some sort that looks like it is intended to direct airflow in some way. This "plate" is installed between the cold side CAC tube "elbow" and the intake manifold. So, as I now understand it, replacing the EGR valve, installing this baffle, using Ford/Motorccraft's PM-22-B Cetane Booster and PM-23-B Fuel Anti-Gel additives, along with using the correct viscosity oil SHOULD fix your's and other 6.0L owners' problems of excessive carbon buildup and EGR system failures.
