Your concern is definitely a real important one. If your egr cooler is compromised in any way, then don't delay in getting it deleted or replaced. The longer you let it go, the greater the chance that collateral damage may occur. The egr cooler usually fails due to a clogging oil cooler. Egr cooler failure can also lead to head gasket failure or hydro-locking of the rt-bank cylinders. Letting the motor idle less is not going to ensure much.
