EGR Valve Sticking

I have an 08 6.4 Tuned with SCT and DPF Delete. It just started losing power. When you first take off from a cold start it runs fine and after its a minute or two it has absolutly no power. Took it to the ford garage and they said that my egr valve was stuck. Would this cause a big power loss?

if it's misfiring they should be able to easily spot that. i think its more likely you have a fuel issue

I'm not sure exactly what sensor it was it should be here first thing this morning! Would that sensor cause my truck to do this? I hope this fixes it because I bought a new 5th wheel camper and am supposed to pick it up today and head to tunkhannok, pa to work in the morning!

Amazing that one small thermocouple can take down a truck. At least they fail safe instead of fail fire.

Glad to hear that's all it was. Which sensor was it?
