Was the egr valve covered in carbon?

 

When it finally levels out does it do it again or fine for the rest of the day?

yes the egr valve carbon up.

every time you start the truck and drive it does it .but once you get pass the point ofloading up.seem like turbo is lagging in boost pressure at this point.

Upper section of the EGR valve was blocked by carbon sludge. Also P2262 came scanner, which tell me that the turbo is not getting signal to advance to open the exhuast side of turbo ?

Did you replace the egr valve or just clean it?

 

Make sure the mass air flow wires are all connected in the connector

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
