The EGR valve is disconnected but there are still gases getting to it. Buy the delete kit. If you can't afford it, throw a freeze plug in the crossover tuber (shiny tube runs across the front of the motor from egr cooler to EGR valve. Throw it on EGR cooler side.
Exhaust side of turbo is almost impossible to get to. It's pretty much in the transmission tunnel of the cab. I will get EGR delete kit. Wish I could do EGR cooler delete too but the kits out right now I don't think will work. I believe my cooler is in a different place. Gonna try to get to turbo. Seems like the gases coming out of the hole on EGR valve is wet. Even the water seperator has specks of oil on it
