06 F250- EBP Cleaning

New to this forum but have learned a lot from everyone's posts.
Here is my contribution.
Broad brush steps for removing and cleaning EBP sensor and tube.
Took me a solid hour from start to finish.

Remove air filter and hose on engine side. Un hook filter sensor harness and harness at hose. Remove coolant hose at fill bottle.

Red line represents location of EBP tube connected to Exhaust Manifold

Use 5/8" wrench at manifold, 10mm socket to post, unhook harness.
It is tight but I did not have to remove any more parts to do this job.

This craftsman weedeater string worked as a pipe cleaner. I also used carb and choke cleaner.

After cleaning picture: ready for install.

Reverse steps for install.
I have cleared the P0407 error code and will let you know if the truck runs any better and if the code does not return.

I will be doing the EGR valve sensor clean this week.

Did your truck run better after cleaning the ebp? How was it running before you cleaned it? Thanks for the help

I was actually getting codes for EBP prior to the cleaning.
I don't recall that the truck was running any different before or after the cleaning. I had read that the sensor affects how the turbo works but I do not know for sure.
Once cleaned, I stopped getting the codes.
It was easy so I figured it wouldn't hurt.

He also said that the ebp sensor gets cake and usually goes bad and u should replace that too so if u still get the code I would replace it. But thanks again

Glad I could contribute and help others. I really don't see any moving parts or anything that could go wrong with the sensor other than electrical connection.

After cleaning, I never got the code again.

I know this is an old thread, but, I just wanted to say thanks. This seems to have solved my low boost problem for now. And it cost me $0!
