Ok my buds '05 truck has his EGR valve removed and a machined plug in it's place. Still has his EGR cooler in place, his EOT / ECT difference is less then 15 degrees, has replaced his coolant cap several times, I'm pretty sure his thermostat is stuck open due to cooler then normal temps, never tows, never had a tune installed, but now he is burping up a little coolant everytime after he shuts down and it sits for a few minutes. He said he once saw a short, less then ten seconds worth, cloud of white smoke on a highway trip which disappeared right after backing off on the throttle. Coolant level was low but still visible then at times he says it's high. I'm thinking HG's but why the heck is it loosing it only after it's shut down. IDK, maybe a small hole in the EGR cooler, which still has it's exhaust inlet side open leading to a slug of coolant coming out and flashing through the turbo and out the exhaust. Scratching my head on this one as I've not seen these type of issues all at once.
