99 7.3l EGR SENSOR/HOSE/TUBE Exhaust Back Pressure Sensor

Well after inspecting the EGR/ Exhaust Back pressure Sensor I found 3 holes in tube. No parts store has it in stock and i dont see spending 30-70 bucks for it and wait 2-5 days to order online.. Can this be made Using just FUEL hose Rubber/Metal Tubing,Brake line? I see at each END there is a round Cuppler or round part and it looks to be FLARED.. I dont know if both peices Come off or not But i think i can make this cheaper then 30-60 bucks useing my old 5"16 metal Fuel Line. or i can use other kind of stuff..



Can I even DEL this sensor? DO i NEED IT. Can i by pass it? Other ways of fixing it?


Thanks

Dennis

i made mine out of hard brake line and bent it to match the old line with a bending tool. With the fittings to match the ends up I think I was like $20-25 into it.

It's just a tueb that can handle lots of heat.
However, it's only for the exhaust back pressure sensor. No EGR system at all on your truck.
Also, I would leave it hooked up. The PCM uses it for fueling decisions.

The cold romping is a cold oil issue

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

No.
#6 injectors fires, depleting oil and fuel rail. #8 fires right after it with an empty rail trying to fill back up. The oil is thick and can not be replenished quick enough. #8 basically misfires till oil is flowing fast enough to keep up.

I didn't say anything about bad injectors.
How many miles is on the oil and what weight oil?
And you probably replaced #8 cause the CPS was faulting it and making you think it was bad.
How is the GPR and UVCH? How long do you let the GPs run until you start it?
