Motor oil additives are in the equation plus the quality of the fuel itself.
Some antioxidant additives are said to produce a varnish deposit that becomes irritating once carbonized (OH / Phenol radicals).

If we all ride bicycles, what will we be riding on, it's gas and diesel tax's that pave out roads!

Jeeps don't need pavement so we can manage
This morning on French TV an eminent advisor said we should soon envisage to work from home and use video conferencing. I'm under the impression the project is to install optical fibers to recuperate the expensive metal used in telephone wires going to each house: its a clever way to liquidate the country and evoke modernism.
Is anyone using bio-diesel nowadays ?
We had a local Swiss company producing di-ester from waste cooking oil collected around Geneva; then they moved to France and vanished in the aether. Instead of installing $100 worth of Viton seals to be compatible with bio-diesel people were threatened to face high expenses. When you want to get rid of your dog you say the poor animal has rabies

We will be all riding mountain bikes and any monies saved will go to medical bills for those who break their necks riding bicycles.

"How long can a government pay for a majority of healthy retired fit and educated people who officially worked 35-40H per week, retired between 55 and 60 (mean age is 58), have an average life expectancy of 85 years, receive full medical care at no charge, buy foreign cars and most industrial goods from emerging countries?"
I can't answer the question, but I think other countries have better ideas than ours (USA) which is run by big business and their cronies, the right wing crazies. It sounds like France takes care of their people instead of dumping them in the street.
The weather is getting warmer. I will be pursuing some of these EGR fixes. Thanks for the help. I just wish there was an easy way to disable it with no CEL. Maybe, Green Engineering if i can get the bucks together.

This separator that you speak of lives on top of the valve cover toward the back of the engine and has at least one hose coming out of it and looks like a small hockey puck. This is a separator that can be removed and cleaned with a mild solvent. If this device gets fairly dirty then it will leak. When you remove it, make sure you do not lose any of the gaskets and that all of the surfaces are clean before reassembling.

The engine is still at the dealership but it is not in Miami but in Melbourne, near Cape Canaveral.
Have a great time in Florida.
