EGR Valve Bad?

Great Forum - First Time PS Owner (04 F250 -born 9/03) and quickly learning to work on diesels (LOL). I think I should have started with a 7.3 before buying a 6.0. OK, enough BS, I need help. Should I be able to manually open the plunger in my EGR valve. While I had it out cleaning it, I was able to pull open the valve manually to clean the seat. It work smoothly, with some resistance, but I am concerned that I should not be able to open by hand. Any now for sure of this is OK or not? I am planning a 1200 miles trip starting tomorrow.

Thanks for the Help!

Just unplug the thing and be done with it. You've already cleaned it which is half the battle. Sounds like it's just fine to me.

Dont unplug it. Let it work the way its supposed to and then when you get back look into putting a egr delete on.

After just having the dealer replace the Oil Cooler and EGR Cooler, I continue to have "Woofing" noises, or burping back through the Airbox, so after cleaning it tonight and re-installing it, it continued to do the same. My understanding of the problem is that the EGR vavle is what is allowing this burping. So I unplugged the EGR valve and road tested for about 30 minutes and seems to have resolved the burping. Who Knows, tomorrow shall bring yet another issue with this darn truck. Anyone else experience this "Burping"?

Yeah

It is the vanes in the turbo starting to stick. A small amount is ok per ford but cleaning it should take care of it.

Stroketech - you say it is the Turbo Vains are sticking. I just seen a video on here demonstrating the "Turbo Fart". Mine does this under acceleration (without consistancy - Half Throttle, 3/4 throttle, very intermitantly, etc) - whaddya think on that?
