I'm not familiar with the egr motors. Does it have an egr cooler like the powerstrokes & 444's? The truck owner believes the head gasket is blown.I have to check it out Tuesday, & I was hoping for a bit more info than I have.He says no water in oil.If there is no egr cooler to leak into the intake, then it is most likely gasket or cracked head. Unit has 99000 miles. Delivers oxy & acet. on daily basis. Adds water daily.Thanks in advance.:help:rock

I have an 05 bus w/ Dt466e. It does have an EGR cooler and it is right above the turbo. They do tend to leak. The problem we had was with the VGT would get all gummed up with an antifreeze and soot paste and not let the vains change their pitch.

egr cooler?

Thanks for taking time to answer. As soon as I checked the engine, I found it. Pulled it off & checked it in a bucket of water & air pressure & walla!!!!!Leaking. A 1,000 dollars later the problem fixed. I told the owner a head gasket would have been cheaper! C U in the funnies. Bob:happydance
