truck back from dealer

My truck was fogging everyone behind me with white/grey smoke. also bucking up hills. dealer replaced egr cooler,EBS and retuned the pcm.
there is a spot in the throttle that it seems to want to hesitate at. I think they didn't replace the EGR valve. should they have replaced it? if I take it back will I have to pay the $100 again?

They may very well try to charge the $100 again. Sounds like you have a good case to insist on not paying it. Do you know if you have the heat induction flash for the FICM?

There really are a number of things that could be causing the issues (bad fuel, injectors, electronic (FICM), wiring, sensors (EBP, ICP), etc).

Easy things to check yourself would be wire chaffing and the condition of the ICP connector (oil soaked?)

Also - can you pull the DTC's and post? Have you changed fuel filters and drained the water separator?

Of course hey may try to charge you but they shouldn't be allowed. It's a business of course and the point is to make money and not work for free or cheap. Warranty work pays close to half by comparison to customer pay, so they usually try to get you to pay. Say you brought it in for that and it's still there, what did they do? if the problem is still there.

If you've picked the truck up the ticket is closed. They will make you pay again. I learned the same thing the hard way on mine. In the future, I will drive the truck for at least a hour or so before I sign anything to make sure nothing is wrong. Or you could just go to one of the org techs and know it's done right the first time.

I really appreciate all the replies guys. I'll try to answer them all.
I have not gotton a check engine light, so will there still be DTC's I can pull and post?

I have changed the fuel filters about 500 miles ago and I did drain the water seperator right before I took it to the dealer.
When I get time I will look at the chafing areas.
I took it in for white/grey smoke and for bucking under load. Smoke is gone and now it really doesn't buck any more but it spits back from the air filter it sounds like when under acceleration uphill. It doesn't spit back all the time, just every once in a while...

Next time I will not sign or pay until I drive it either!!
Thanks guys...

Probably Scuffy or Jon in Winston Salem, NC. It's we'll worth the drive. Trust me. I drove 420 miles for Scuffy to work on my truck. He lifted the cab, changed headgaskets, studs, did some EGR stuff , and fixed an oil leak all in two days. It took my local dealer almost 2 weeks just to remove and decoke the turbo last time I took it in.

His truck is under warranty. He was asking about Ford dealer techs. That guy is a private shop.
