jfirstford is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I finally got a chance to read through this whole thread and now I'm a little confused and slightly more enlightened about the effect of an unplugged EGR Valve in my '04 build PSD.
So if I'm understanding this correctly, although no code(s) will be generated, an unplugged EGR Valve in a '03-'04 build will cause some degree of insufficient fan clutch engagement, therefore higher potential for engine overheating and less efficient A/C condenser coil cooling. And that degree of insufficient fan clutch engagement may be anything from none-at-all to less-than-it-should-be?

From my understanding that is correct.

I questioned whether the PCM might need a couple drive cycles of the EGR being unplugged? Just thinking out loud on that one.

I need to scrounge up an older 03/04 or retry with a newer truck with VXCF9. Just from the look of things maybe the newest strategy is the kicker with having an unplugged EGR valve?
