I have been following the instruction that a search has brought up.

I have a couple questions though:

When moving the pintel around to free it up are you supposed to stick
a star (torx) screwdriver bit in there and go left to right? Or just make
sure it goes up and down easy. Then use a bit of force to make sure
it goes down all the way? While spaying/soaking the hell out of it.

I used three types of cleaners from carb to electrical parts cleaner.
How much black stuff should still be in there. It just would not come
out.

On the intake right under the EGR there is a "cap" that has a hex bit
opening. Should I have opened this and stuck more cleaner in there
to? I seems to be connected to the sucking part in a "Y" fasion to the
EGR.

Is it OK to put cleaner in the exhaust (blowing) part? I stuck a ton
down there and it all seemed to come out the exhaust.

After all this I shook the EGR and was able to hear the pintel move.
Good?

All in all it seemed to be very clean before I started anything even
after 40K.

For about a minute after finally getting the truck started there was a
sulpher smell is this normal?

Yes, that is the correct procedure...

I used cleaner until I stopped getting black stuff out and the pintle moved freely. Mayb a 3rd of a can.....

Not sure on that one...

The egr doesnt have to be spotless inside. As long as the pintel seats good and moves freely, and there isnt a bunch of junk in there, its ok. Cleaner is always better of course.

I dont know about the cap on the intake

You can spray into the tube going to the exhaust. At least make sure it isnt plugged, doesnt need to be real clean. All that will happen is the cat converter will burn it off, it might help clean the cat some too.

The sulfer smell is most likely the cat reacting with and burning off the carb cleaner. Shouldnt be a problem.
