I believe we are missing some steps here? Coolant was leaking from the connection at the exhaust manifold and the parts involve many gaskets and seals and no torq specs for installation?

HI

If it is leaking at the exhaust end , then replace it

trust me, not worth rebuilding

as far as gaskets go, they come with new(rebuilt ) Egr valve

Torque on the bolts are 32-35 Ft Lbs

I hope this helped you
