Leaking EGR Cooler

Hi all, I have a 2008 that has a leaking EGR cooler. I currently have 64k miles and my warranty runs out Feb. 13th. Do I let them fix it under warranty or do I just go ahead and delete everything including the DPF? Do I purchase an extended warranty? I'm looking for longevity more than a race truck as this hauls my 13k lb fifth wheel and I don't want to be sitting on the side of the road with the wife and 2 kids.

Thanks
Scott

I'd let them fix it under warranty. About the extended warranty, I bought it because I dont have the money to fix it out of pocket if something happens.

Let them fix it under warranty. You can later delete, but at least if you let them fix it you will have good parts to go back to stock with if you ever need to.

Plus if for some reason there are updated parts to go on or they find other issues so I say let them do it then deleted rights after. That way it was hooked to fords computer to check for any codes/issues. I find a lot of people complaining about the warranties. It always seems that they find a reason not to cover the issue. If you have the money I would put it towards deleting if you don't have emissions testing. It would increase reliability and you could run low tuning to not put your truck at any harm.

I just received a call from my dealer and they told me that Ford has denied the warranty to fix the cooler due to the location of the crack. They said that the crack was due to metal fatigue. The crack is in the cooler at the drivers side exhaust manifold and it is on the nipple where the rubber hose attaches. The crack is at the base of the nipple and the cooler. I argued with them and they told me all they could do was submit it again and then we would have to wait on an engineer to come look at it. Does this sound right? I thought the coolers were covered with the engine 5yr 100,000 miles? This truck is completely stock and has never been modified!

The coolers should be fixed under warranty. I agree with above. If possible let them fix it and then delete the coolers and egr valve.

I have never used this dealer before. My original dealer has lost there diesel tech, not sure why, so I need to find another dealer. I was good buddy's with John the original tech and he was great to work with. They have not replaced him yet so I either wait or move on to another dealer, either way I am starting all over! I can say that this dealer isn't working out very well!

Typical dealer and Ford B.S. They do whatever they can to soak you. I'd find another dealer.
