EBP sensor freeze..

I seen several people talk about how their EBP tube gets blocked up or freezes...

Something to think about is switching to RCD up-pipe as they move the EBP sensor higher up the pipe to where if you have the EGR blocked or removed water will not collect in it..

Taking it off is very easy!




Enjoy!

If the coolers are removed you could just removed the stock cross over pipe and tap into a block off plated mounted up top behind the hp.

True but you will also have to add a drain plug as water collects there.

Not if you remove that cross over pipe. Only if you leave the pipe and the sensor mounted in the stock location. Just have to loosen the bolt to drain that out.

If you removed that cross over pipe your sensor will be mounted at the highest point so you dont have to worry about water. Plus it will be warm up there so no need to worry about freezing.

Haha yep, more money the better!!! I do plan on swapping up pipes at a later time ($$$$) when I do turbos. But for now I'm going to stick with taking out the cross over and relocated the sensor up top. lol

Quick question guys....I have had the EBP sensor issue too and I know about the reloacting option(s). I will do that when it warms up in a few months. For now I have been going under my truck and cracking open the lower block off plate once a week and letting the water drain out. I have not had any issues since i started doing this in early January.

So, now to my question....Should I take the EBP hose off too and drain water out of it, or do you think I have prevented that from happening with my consistant draining at the block off plate? Does water actually get into the hose...or is it the moisture from the water in the pipe blocked below making its way up into the tube?

Sometimes that tube gets clogged up. Mostly soot and stuff may clog it up, pretty easy to pull off and clean up. Also good to check the sensor.
