EGR cooler hose

Hi guys, I have an 03 f250 that started dripping coolant on the ground about a week ago only when I would start it and never when warm, iv narrowed it down to the coolant hose on the EGR cooler. I still have the orange hose. I have a new blue hose coming from ford and my question is can this swap be done with the turbo in the truck? I really hope it can, alot of work for such a small fix. If anyone has done this before please give me any pointers you can or tricks you found. Thanks alot for the help

-Brad

Yes it can!!!

First drain a couple gallons of coolant out.

Remove the CAC See it's in the way:



Then remove the 2 torx screws, you can see one on the right. IT IS A PAIN to get the one you see. there is a tool that helps, I dont know the name and I don't have it. Have a magnet in case you drop something down there. cram a rag under that area.

The cap then comes off, oh, you need a new gasket for the the cap. I don't recall the part number though. After the cap comes off you can use a small pry bar to gently pull the hose off the tube that goes to the EGR cooler. It's a tug. Some have cut the hose before, I didn't, just pulled it off.

Then when you install the new one, make sure you put it on the right direction. I added some coolant to the end going on the EGR cooler tube for it to slide.

Slide it back just far enough to put the part to the oil cooler back on and then slide the new hose forward on to the oil cooler tube. When you do get it there, you need to twist the hose to lock it into place, you will hear it.

I practiced the twist on the oil cooler part when it was out to see how it worked.

Have fun, should take you all of 20 minutes. Just kidding!!!! A Ford Tech can do it in 20, not me. I lost track of the time!! Dang #10 torx screws any way!

yes, they are o-rings sorry about the missed naming! The one for the cap is odd shape as you can see by the cap, the other will go inside, you will see that when you get it a part.

After I had it all back together I thought to myself, I should have flushed the coolant system at that time, and disconnected the lower radiator hose and hooked a hose to the oil cooler outlet tube and back flushed the oil cooler just for giggles. Would it work? Not sure, but what the heck. What could it have hurt. Too late.

I wonder if any one has ever tried that?
