I saw a you tube on cleaning the egr pipe and how important it is, I pulled mine today at 20000 miles and it was not to bad but cleaned it anyway. This should be in the maintence manual to be done every 20000 miles. it is very simple ti do I believe the reason that mine was fairly clean is I have been using Stanadyne since the truck was new

Important? No. It does nothing for you. Some people will clean it periodically just to monitor soot accumulation in the intake, but it really does nothing.

Someone should stay away from youtube. Having owners pull and clean the egr diffuser tube would create more issues than it would help. It also does not help anything.

I cleaned the Mass Air Sensor but not the EGR diffuser tube... yet. The reason I am seeing to clean it is to prevent the plastic swirl valves from eventually sticking and not closing under their spring tension. Isn’t that a good reason to periodically clean the diffuser tube?
