Hi dancer714,

Thank you for the donation.

EGR system passage is usually due to clogged EGR passages and valve resulting in insufficient flow. Cleaning/replacing the EGR valve and cleaning the EGR passage under the valve should solve the problem.

Int Ind Service? I am not sure what is meant by this.

Cat converter. This could be due to a bad or clogged catalytic converter.

If the Check engine is showing, retrive the trouble codes and let me know what they are and I would be able to understand the problem better to assist you.

To retrieve the trouble codes, bridge the Service Check Connector and turn ignition switch to ON. Watch the Check Engine Light ( CEL ), it should blink.

Count the blinks, a prolonged flash = 10 while a quick flash = 1. A short pause is a continuation of the code and a prolonged pause between flashes indicates a new code is about to be flashed. The cycle would repeat once all trouble codes are flashed.

As to the dripping coolant, something is broken causing the leaking and you need to visually inspaect where it is coming from. How much would depend on what is causing the problem.
