EGR cooler time.
Well my 2005 6.0 goes into the dealership 9/17/2012 for a new EGR cooler & a new oil cooler. Luckily I have a extended warranty that will cover all but $100.00 of the repair, not sure what I'd have done if I had no warranty! Cry out loud I suppose as they say thats around a $3,000.00 dollar job!
This all started about 6 weeks ago when I was checking fluids and saw the degass bottle was low. I refilled it and it went low again in about a week. The dealer told me the steam from the exhaust in the morning was "normal", guess we know that's not the case. I pulled the EGR valve & found water in the intake.
Sad that the customer has to do the diag for the dealer!
