Nope. No white smoke, no puking. Some days it would lose coolant and some days it would not.
Only black smoke, but again, FICM tested bad. So that sort of sums that one up.
Here's how this whole thing sort of started... When I first noticed problems anyway.
Got off the freeway one day. Truck had no power, was black smoking and throwing the EGR code. Limped it home pulled EGR valve. Very clogged up. Inside intake was dry. Cleaned it, put it back in, but did not replace the O rings. still was black smoking though, so I decided to replace the EGR valve. Still black smoking. Didn't really plan on EGR and FICM at the same time!!
So anyway, when I went back in to replace the EGR, just 2 days later it was a fairly wet in there, whereas 2 days before, it was dry. figured maybe EGR valve o-rings to blame since i had not replaced them.
Decided to pull the EGR valve again today, drier inside than before. Why would it get drier? Carbon was not "wet" more like "barely damp" and sort of flaky. would flake off when you touch it. However the valve did not move freely, and was actually stuck. Partially open stuck. Cleaned it and moves freely again.
Not sure where to go with all of this.
