egr plugged

I have an 06 with 60k in an f550 it had a bad miss so I hooked it to the scanner and it came up with several erg codes and a cylinder 1 missfire. Pulled the egr and it was all scummy and plugged up so cleaned it all out and reinstalled. The miss is a lot better but still there more in the low end.. truck is bone stock. Thoughts comments suggestions please?

Also since egr was plugged what else should I check for being plugged?

Anything/everything that connects to the intake. Such as check your MAP sensor hose and the nipple.
Maybe the EBP sensor, drivers side exhaust manifold, stainless steel tube coming off the front of it and going towards the back. Remove sensor, blow the crud off it and then down into the tube.

Whitejohn try throwing a couple of bottles of Rev-X in before pulling the injector. If it is sticking that will most likely clear it up. Also synthetic oil keeps that from happening.

To remove the egr cooler, remove the turbo, remove the oil/fuel filter cans, remove the intake. Replace the passenger side up pipe, reassemble in reverse.

You should remove the intake and clean it out. That crud is all over the inside effecting flow and it is going into the cylinders.

It is only held on by the v-band clamp on the rear and 2 bolts through the manifold in the front, and the hose connection.
