Burning coolant

Ok, just got my 04 f350 outa the shop for a clogged EGR. Now 1 week later, I am fogging the neighborhood. Severe white smoke, and overheated, I put in a 1.5 gal of antifreeze and burnt thru it in 2 miles. I have had it with this EGR crap. Does anyone know who is making this bypass tube to install in place og the EGR cooler? This truck has 161,000 miles on it. The engine was replaced at 81k by Ford. Of course the 2nd engine has no warranty...LOL Thanks

You don't actually need the sneaky pipe like the 05-07's do because your EGR up-pipe has no restrictions. You just need a block off plate. Check out the link.

Thanks for the welcome. Has anyone else done away with the EGR and cooler? What were the changes experienced ie: performance problems, fuel mileage? ect.

Oil Cooler

From what i just learned, any loss of coolant or coolant -oil issues, I'd check this item first, Especially if someone else worked on your truck.
