EBPV Stuck?

I drove my truck for about an hour after about a 35 to 45 min warm up and the EBPV is still opening and closing. The temp here is about 22 degrees today. Any recommendations? If I were to unplug the EBPV sensor is that gonna hurt anything? Does anyone have pictures of where it is located? Thanks your help is very much appreciated!

I have been having the same problems too, I scoured the forums yesterday. From what I have read unplugging the sensor will not hurt anything. However, the correct solution can be found at http://www.guzzle7pt3.com/ebps.php (If my info is incorrect, someone will chime in)

You can remove it by removing the turbo but so it wont come on and off remove the two prong plug below the turbo intake side. It keeps the hot air in the enigne to increase warm up it won't hurt anything but they do tend to leak oil slude from the peadestal when the seal goes out. People delete them for less crap in the exhaust to get the air out. Whats said is it decrases egts by 50 degrees but i never notice
