Using your trusty Owner's Manual you may have noted that changing-out the crankcase vent filter (CCV) is a required service at the 67,500 mile interval. Further, for those 2007.5-2012, 2500/3500 pickup truck owners [the non-diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) style aftertreatment] there is also a "clean the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve and cooler service" required.

The '07.5-Current Cab and Chassis trucks and '13-Current 2500/3500 use the DEF exhaust aftertreatment. Looking closely at their Owner's Manuals reveals that a CCV filter change is also required at 67,500 miles, However, the cleaning of the EGR valve and EGR cooler is NOT a requirement. We asked the folks at Cummins and they responded that you may wish to include the cleaning, but it is typically not needed until the second crankcase vent filter change. They did suggest an inspection of the EGR valve. "Sooty/dusty is good, shellac/crusty needs to be cleaned." If the valve is shellac/crusty, don't skimp, go ahead and do the entire EGR system cleaning.

If you price these parts over-the-counter at Mopar the cost is $180 plus $40 for the cleaning solution.

We would suggest using the Cummins equivalent parts for the gaskets and filter that are needed and we'd also suggest using "Purple Power" as your cleaning solution. The folks at Truck Trend magazine did a comparison of several cleaners and Purple Power was their winner. They found the Mopar cleaner to be one of the least effective.

The Geno's Garage 6.7L EGR Cleaning Kit contains the following:

  • (1) CV520010 Crankcase filter
  • (2) EGR valve gaskets
  • (1) Small exhaust manifold gasket
  • (1) Large exhaust manifold gasket
  • (1) EGR butterfly gasket
  • (3) EGR plumbing gaskets
  • (3) Cooling system O-Rings
  • (1) Airhorn gasket
  • (2) Rubber plugs

Freddie Frugal

Freddie Frugal knows that if you are going to spend time cleaning the EGR valve and EGR cooler, that you'll remove and clean the intake air horn that the EGR valve is bolted to. The replacement gasket for air horn-to-intake manifold is 4940849 and it is included in our EGR Cleaning Kit.

Additionally, our kit has thorough instructions for removal of the parts and tips on best method(s) for cleaning.

Finally, Freddie Frugal adds two rubber plugs for the ends of the EGR cooler assembly so you don't waste cleaning fluid. Fill up the cooler, cap it off, and soak it overnight. Use the caps to shake the cooler with the cleaner inside.

This kit makes the maintenance simple. (within reason) The one thing that i found out was if you remove the rt splash liner, you will be able to access the rear 15mm nut on cooler a little easier. When flushing cooler, I have a high pressure nozzle on hose, was able to use house pressure without firing up pressure washer. Purple Power got the soot off Great!

This kit is awesome. It's great that the ORings have been added to it as well. Genos pricing is great and they were able to ship out the kit to me at a very reasonable price. I will be purchasing all of my parts from them here on out.

This kit is awesome. It has everything you need to clean your EGR valve and cooler. Even plugs for the cooler to let it soak and instructions on how to do the job. My only complaint is that there were a couple extra gaskets for both butterfly valves which was never talked about in the instructions or even the youtube video, which I recommend watching. This project took about 2 1/2 hours to take apart, I let it soak for 5 hours and reversed process took 2 + hours. It was not hard but "cumbersome" in some spots. I'm not a mechanic but I'll turn a wrench and this project was a good one. I have a 2013 Ram 6.7L and honestly I could have waited to do this. But it's done now and I will wait another 67,500 for my perform service light to come back on. Local parts house does not sell this kit and the dealer wanted $1300 and that was without the crankcase ventilation filter. Again, great kit, and it came fast!

Great price with good instructions
