egr coolers

Hello, i need an educated opionion on my lower egr cooler, the mount were it conects in the front from the other cooler just started to leak. How bad would it be to drive it around like that. I mean since i had my radiator replaced i mark a line with a sharpie of the coolant level and it's only moved a 1/16 of an inch. I know i need to take it to the dealer but i"m out of town working and this jobs only has 4 more days so i don"t want to come back up here to a dealer to pick it up if their is any major problems.

Thanks Chris

just keep an eye on it. since coolant flows into the horizontal cooler first and it takes the most heat of the exhaust it's the one that's most likely to fail from being starved of coolant.

i've had one of those tubes on the shelf for months now waiting for a cust to return(same thing, small leak). i'm interested to see what the condition of this guys truck will be if/when he returns
