EGR delete solution?

Is it possible to delete this function yet? I have a gummed up EGR valve, that keeps sticking, which chokes out the truck. I am stuck - no EGR valves in the country for another 2 weeks.

Anyone want to buy a truck?

Hey, trust me when I tell you that I know how frustrating this can be. Ford is releasing a new EGR valve design that will no longer use coolant. Sorry I don't have all the exact details for you, but atleast hope that it may help the problem. By the way, your dealership parts department should have the new part number listed in their system, unfortunately Ford just isn't shipping them out yet. Depending on what your valve looks like I would atleast get your dealership to clean your valve and use that until the new valve gets in.

Sorry for the problems, but then I have had my valve replaced 4 times. Although I think I know why mine has failed so many times...

What will happen if I just unplug the sensor? Will the truck throw a code and de-tune?

I had the valve pulled and cleaned, but it keeps gumming up and sticking...

I am probably missing something, but when I looked at those EGR delete kits I only saw stuff for the 6.0L. I thought the only way to disable the EGR on the 6.4 was to use a spartan tuner.

When you say it chokes out the truck, what exactly do you mean? I might be experiencing the same thing with mine. If I'm stopped at a red light or something and I leave at part throttle the motor seems to not run right. It gets kind of quiet actually. But it still moves the truck.

This may be different for you guys, but once my EGR was bad the truck would stumble badly and have trouble getting up to 25 mph's. But usually it would throw a CEL very soon after the symptoms got this bad. Before this though I would sometimes experience a lack of any power. Usually only lasting maybe a second or so.

Elite diesel has one out. It is a fair amount of money and requires you to use custom tuning.

I blocked mine and its pretty damn easy. go to menards and buy a piece of 16 gauge steel, next to the exhaust manifold on the drivers side is the first egr cooler inlet, the exhaust pressure signal tube is right there and is kinda in the way, but i think its an 8mm head bolt top and bottom, used 1/4'' rachet with 6pt socked to make sure i didnt round the bolts breaking them loose, remove both. carefully pry the exhaust pipe and coole away from each other with a screwdriver, till the stainless steel gasket falls out. Take gasket and copy it onto your piece of steel, i use spray paint because its fast and accurate, cut out the outside but leave one corner large i just left one square so you have something to hold onto to position it. drill your bolt holes, give yourself a break and make em a little large. i used loctite red to glue the gasket onto the blockoff plate so i only had one thing to line up and a handle. you can pry the coolers and exhaust apart far enough to install at this point but you have to use a lot of force so be careful. i found out later that loosening the clamps holding the egr cooler works pretty well when i blocked off the top but didnt try on the bottom so you might want to loosen the three clamps. anway i pried them about 3/4 inch apart with a prybar starting with screwdrivers to get the pry bar in. if you pry it to 3/4 you'll end up with just enough room to get your block off back in with no problems. bottom bolt is easy to get in and out from the bottom, top bolt sucks, i broke it loose from the bottom then screwed it in and out from the top.
