Thank you for that

Ok , the filter for the regen , needs to be removed and baked at 500 degree

to burn off all the soot, this is a normal occurrence, I have seen this before

I suggest you get it baked , to clean it up , other wise you will still have issues

I hope this helped you

I dont know the fault code number dont remember. The truck is on the road now...but the dash computer says egr plugged.
Expert:  cumminsdr replied 1 year ago.

The fault should be on the dash. There could be many reasons for the egr issue not just the valve, If the driver can provide the fault numbers it would be helpful
