Exclamation What is this/why is it smoking?

Hey guys,
For quite a while, I have been smelling a stroke smoke smell in the cab of my 6.0 . I finally have found where the smoke is coming from. Where the arrow is pointing (whatever that is) is what is creating the smoke. Any ideas?

Thanks

Looks like the ebp sensor tube. Does it connect to a sensor and the exhaust manifold?

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Would the ebp sensor have a metal tube going to it? I touched it and it is definitely metal. Not sure if that helps. Thanks again!

Yes, it directs exhaust gasses to the sensor. Apparently you have a hole in it. You need to trace it out. That would likely mess up your ebp sensor readings.

That is the EBP tube connection to the manifold. If you have traced it, it goes to the sensor about mid left valve cover. That is a lot if corrosion on the connection! Heat and salty water do a lot of damage.

Thanks for the help guys. Getting it fixed today. Will post with what is found. I'm thinking the tube rotted and is leaking exhaust fumes. Michigan winters sure take a toll on vehicles.
