2006 PSD 6.0 temp problems

Rig: 2006 F-350 4x4, PSD 6.0, Crew Cab, right at 60k mi, used for daily driving (140mi) and 4x4ing out to camp/fish (not really towing anything)

Mods: Intake, Exhaust, EDGE Programmer (didn't download the Juice stage 6), stock down pipe I think.

Problem/situation/location: AZ, Driving up a hill(less than a 6% grade) no more than 2mi in length, no extra weight, cruise control engaged at 65mph, outside temp was 68deg F. Information screen beeped and indicated "check engine temperature", I looked at my stock temp indicator and pulled over since it was up at the top of the hot area. Shut the truck off after a second and popped the hood. Overflow tank had vented into the engine bay and was a little low. After I filled it back up(less than 1qt.) I proceeded to drive the rest of my trip with no problems. The next day before starting the truck again I checked my coolant and added just over 1 gal. Truck has had no other symptoms of overheatting since the dummy light, I tried to reproduce the problem and went up 7% grades without a hiccup. I was thinking the thermostat might have been stuck, but I'm new to diesels.

Has anybody else had this happen? Or know what to do about it? Just seems odd that I've driven through 2ft. of sand for an hour without a problem, but a little hill does this.

TIA,

Austin

Damn, is this common on these? Will my warranty cover this, and is it safe to drive until I get time to figure it out? Also do I have to uninstall my tuner to take it to the dealership?

yes the egr is a very common problem on the 6.0l it will be covered under warrenty, I would for sure take everything out that has to do with your edge (pending you don't know if the dealer is mod friendly) but better to take it out than to have them tell you no because of it

So should I just unplug it, or remove all of it all together? I can't fix the thermocouple in the exhaust either way though, and how long is my warranty good for?

Well, I called the dealership just now and they can take a look at it on Wed or Thurs, so if I can figure out how to uninstall my programmer I will send it to them since he said it would be covered under warrenty. Does anybody think I shouldn't take it to them? How hard is it to uninstall my EDGE Juice set up?
