Cleaned egr today, have a ?

Is any dampness in the manifold acceptable?
I found a little when before I vacuumed the intake.
Am I in trouble?
Delta's are 6 to 8 degrees.

I assume you aren't noticeably losing any coolant? How about white smoke?

Had a Sinister coolant filter installed today, had a "combustion leak test" and it failed. Tech said more than likely it's the egr cooler but it may be the head gaskets or both. he recommended an egr delete to begin with. Is there a more definitive test before I break out the big $$$$? I prefer the BPD egr cooler to the delete, but I would like more info on the entire problem. Any Ideas?

Thanks.

I have a hard time believing it is a bad EGR cooler if you aren't losing coolant, it is dry under the EGR valve, and no white smoke.

That being said, it could have just happened I suppose.

I prefer keeping the EGR system. I installed the BPD EGR cooler for reliability purposes and like it very much.

Took her to a new dealership today and had a tech hook up his diag. tool and took a long ride. His opinion was "This truck is running awesome" 5 degree delta and great turbo operation. His advice was to keep a close eye on the coolant level and drive the @#$%^ out of it.
NO CHARGE!
Just earned my business.

I bet it was pill from the ccv, which is normal. Just check again with the nose pointed downhill overnight that would fill it with coolant if the egr took a dump. If it's bad, unplug the egr while driving until u get a new cooler, but I think it's alright. The oem cooler is fine as long as u maintain the coolant and keep an eye on the delta. I use my scangauge2 and it's great. If u are still running gold coolant, put on a coolant filter, run it for 5-10k, change the filter and do a coolant flush with only restore, not vc9 or restore+. then, switch to cat ec1 elc. I should b good 4 a long time.
