Question I need a new EGR Cooler

I am new here to this forum, and am glad to have found you guys...it's fantastic. I have a 2004 F250 company truck that is at the dealer in need of a new EGR cooler and a has a hose going to the turbo that is blocked. They want $5400.00+ to fix it. Can I get the cooler and install it myself to save some jack. And is it a dealer item? Thanks again for all your help.

That is insane. Take it to another dealer. They are trying to rip you off. You can buy a full EGR delete kit for $600. The list price on a factory EGR cooler is $595.57 + tax.

The dealer that my company usually uses is about 100 miles away. I would like to fix it myself if I could get the kit.

You can do it yourself. Dealer only item. I would check into a full EGR delete kit. $600 shipped and will never have that problem again. It's a fairly big job. Have a lot of stuff that needs too come off. Check this delete kit out before you install a factory cooler. First Coast Diesel Performance I could see $5400.00 if they were doing headgaskets and some other stuff. The delete kit is the same price as the cooler.

I noticed coolant dripping from the back of the engine off the starter. I took it to the dealer and that's what they said. They said it is leaking internally and externally, which they say is causing the lack of power on take off issue. By the way, thanks so much for all the info. Can I use this delete kit on a vehicle used on the road?

Yeah, you can use it. Mine didn't have any power issues what so ever when mine went. I think they are feeding you a line.

Mine has a power issue, and shudders when you let off the throttle. Once it shifts thru 4th gear, it seems to be ok, but has no passing power until it shifts back up. But it is definetely leaking coolant. And they said some hose for the turbo is blocked. I have never put a wrench on one of these engines, but have been a mechanic all my life, so I think I can fix it if I know what it needs.

I really don't thing the cooler is causing the power issue. I don't doubt that it is the cooler that could be leaking. Any coolant puking out of the degas bottle? I think you could have an issue with the EGR valve itself causing the power issue. I would remove it and see how dirty it is. That is a real common problem.

No, there is no coolant coming out of the bottle. I will pull the EGR valve and clean it. It was replaced when the thing had about 70,000 on it under warranty, and now it has 145,000. No real issues till now.
