EGR Tube replacement question
Finally my first question after 1 1/2 years on here... I have an '05 Ex that I'm "bullet proofing". Unfortunately, I only put 7k miles on it after I bought it before the EGR tube cracked. Long story short, the EGR was replaced before I bought it, but the oil cooler was not. I saw the thread several weeks ago discussing doing the flush before replacing the oil cooler so that makes all kinds of sense to me so I'm going to replace the EGR cooler tube, flush it, and then tear it down and bullet proof it.
I have an alldata account for the truck and they have you removing pretty much everything on top of the motor to get to the EGR tube.
My question to those that have replaced their own (or a friends) EGR cooler tube is - is this the case or does just the turbo/pedestal and intake have to come off?
Opinions are always welcome but I'm looking for those with experience changing the tube.
Thanks in advance and you have a great forum here.
