So assuming your not you have not seen your truck spewing white smoke. One way is to pull the EGR valve and see if it's wet. I found the easiest way to get those stubborn things out is to take a 2X4 and put the end on the top of the firewall then using a length of heavy wire looped thru the EGR valve hold down tabs and over the 2X4, then lift. It'll pop right out (you'll need to rotate the EGR valve a little to get the wire thru the bolt holes). You need to get yourself something to read the engine oil temperature and the coolant temperature. Anything over 15 degrees difference is an indication your oil cooler is plugging up which reduces the coolant flow thru the EGR cooler which will fail due to coolant flashing into steam.
