WTB: 6.0 EGR valve

Seeing if someone local has an EGR valve I can pick up for 2003 6.0. I figure most anyone here has EGR deleted.

Truck started doing some funny stuff that makes me suspect the EGR valve does not close fully.

Yes, I know it needs an EGR delete. That's on the list, but time is precious because we have an infant.

Thanks

Are you looking for a used one to hold you off? If so, have you tried some junk yards around you? They might have some trucks there and I'm sure the EGR will still be in there (if it wasn't deleted)

Yeah, just looking to get a working valve in there for now so I don't have to look at the codes.

I suspected that my EGR valve was leaking, so I welded it shut. My problem didn't go away (missing when hot).

At some point when I have time, and when the truck is otherwise running well, I'll do a delete. I don't have the 8 hours to spare right now because we have an infant.

Just a thought, if you are able to weld, and when you have the time, just weld some plugs in your stock cooler. Almost free that way.

I need to replace my oil cooler and delete egr, right away. But I'm trying to sell some stuff to be able to afford it. As soon as I do, I'll contact you if you still need it, it's almost new. Replaced just over a year ago...

Are you running a stock tune? IIRC, you'll still need a tune to keep the codes from popping up even when you delete it.

Tune is stock as far as I know. I don't mind adding a tune, exhaust, and EGR delete when things are otherwise sorted, but don't want to add any new variables now. Chasing a rough when hot condition. Runs perfect until oil temps get to ~170, starts missing when it warms up.

Replaced a couple of injectors a month ago. It was running great after the injector replacement, and then all of the sudden started running rough. I was halfway through the tank of diesel, driving daily. Starts and runs fine when cold.
