Im a little confused by your post. From what I understand, you were getting a squeal when using the EB AND you noticed soot on the engine. So you ordered up some new gaskets and are trying to get the manifold off to change them? or was the squeal and soot after the new gaskets?
Yes if you mess with the EGR cooler, you will get coolant everything. About 1/4 gallon will dump our if your on level ground. You will need to remove the entire EGR cooler to get to the manifold bolts. Also when filling coolang back up with an intact EGR cooler, make sure to bleed the system properly, cooler is prone to trapped air and cracks otherwise.
