EGR cooler leaking or not...?
I am in the process of changing out my oil cooler and doing an egr delete. After a few delays in the project I finally got everything out of the truck and now I have questions. I had asked before and did some tests that were recommended from here and thought I narrowed it down to the egr cooler leaking as to why I had coolant blowing out of the degas cap, but now I dont know.
Here is one of the problems I am having, The intake is all gummed up with black wet soot and all the intake ports into the motor have the same wet soot, but after removing the EGR cooler it only has dry black soot, it is not wet in there. So if the intake has black wet soot, but the egr cooler has dry black soot, does that mean that the egr cooler is not leaking or can that still be the problem. If the head gaskets are bad will the intake manifold get wet? Please help me out I dont want to put everything back together only to have to tear it apart again.
Thank you very much for the help.
