Crank sensor appears to be ok however I noticed the EGR valve tube (steel tube) bolted to the exhaust manifold leaks and I see that one of the bolts is broke off. I cannot stop the leak. Apparently they must have tried taking it off when they swapped out trannies. That much leak be causing my truck to run like crap for the first 20 minutes ? -
Answer 2
crank sensor may be improperly installed.... -

Comment 2
EGR pipe leaking will NOT cause your car to run rough...The EGR will block any vacuum leak when it is operating correctly...if it is STUCK OPEN, it will run rough all the time except when accelerating. -
Comment 3
