Its time to change my CCV filter, message on overhead lit up to perform service. At 143,000+ miles, did change CCV at 67500.

Question I have is on EGR Cleaning. I have never cleaned it or have had any codes related to it. How often are others cleaning or like me haven't cleaned it. Just wondering since book calls for it when changing CCV filter.

Changed the CCV filter couple of days. I weighed the new and old one with fish scale. The old one weighed 15oz. more, so it was holding about that much oil accumalated over 76,000 miles.

Mike,

Genos garage offers the kit to clean the EGR. You basicly remove the EGR Cooler and plug the end and fill it with simple green. After it disovles the soot you hose it out and put it back on with new gaskets. If you are not having issues I would leave it be. What I would suggest would be to flush your coolant if you have not do so.
