my problem im having is when im driving the truck the ebpv valve is closing and causing me a loss of power. my question is why is the truck not doing this in the driveway when i let it warm up for ten minutes?? when i start the truck it fires up and runs for about 10 seconds and the valve closes and it sounds like the devil comin out for about 10 seconds then it goes to back to idling and does until i drive it; then the valve starts closing again and i loose all power if i give give it some gas it pops back opens and the trucks drives normal but the second i let off it that dam valve closes up again. when my buddy starts his truck it the valve closes and it hisses for a good couple minutes until its warm then opens back up and he goes and drives problem free. could it be the sensor acting up?? replaced it pretty recently and cleaned the tube as well. and suggestions greatly appreciated
Put it on a switch. just cut the grey and red wire, splice into it, run it to a switch and then put 12v hot to the switch. Mine did the same thing. You might try holding the idle at like 12-1500 rpm's after the truck is warm, when the valve closes shut the truck off, then restart it, that reset mine. Now mine is switched, I use it as an exhaust brake!
Good call ford man. I should have added that, I use mine as an exhaust brake and really like it, but I don't use it to warm up, you won't notice much difference with it gone. Get a chip with a high idle tune if you need fast warm up's.
Thanks. I will also add that I had mine unplugged for 3 years before I gutted it and put in a blank pedestal. Had no problems in 3 years so for an immediate fix till you can get a sensor or whatever, just unplug it. The plug is by the turbo inlet
