Is this a cab off fix


This is a view up from the bottom looking at the egr cooler. It looks like it is leaking from the joint between the two. Is this a cab off fix

Not at all, you can either fix or block the EGR without removing the cab. If you've never done one before I would be happy to walk you through it. Takes a few hours if it's your first.

Only basic hand tools needed and an EGR blocker kit runs anywhere from $20-$30 depending on where you get it.

I would just block it and be done with it.

I hear you about blocking it and being done with it.its going in the shop next week for the reflash and if it's covered I'll let them fix it. The rear main looks like it's leaking all so, I don't have time right now to get into it... I'll let the garage take a look at it

They are notorious for leaking back there. I think there was actually a recal on that at one time. They have to pull the engine to fix the leak. Big pain in the butt

Are you talking about the oil leak or the coolant... I would think it's easier to drop the trans to fix the rear main

if it's actually coming out from the joint between the 2 coolers then that is a failed horizontal cooler. I have also seen the coolant elbow between the 2 coolers leak too

Not to get off subject but where did you grab power for your running board light?

On the 2008- 2010 Fords the power wire for the running board lights is a white wire located under the kick plate when you open the door.

That wire will only have power when the doors are open. That way your lights aren't on all the time!
