Question EBPV question

Can I just unplug the ebpv?? or do I have to gut it?? Where is the plug??

It seems to stick until the truck is good and hot and if I have to let it idle a little longer without it plugged in then so be it!!! It sounds like Sh*^t!!!!

Thanks in advance!!

It is possible to unplug it. The plug is right under the intake on the comressor housing of the turbo.

Sometimes just unplugging it doesn't always fix the problem. May need to disconnect the control rod and wire the valve open.

unplugging it is easiest, but you can lose a bit of backpressure by gutting it, which is a good thing. or you can turn it into an exhaust brake

You can make the exhaust brake work, but it can be a bad idea (It does work for quite a few people though). If you want to do that do a little research so you can make an informed decision.

As for the original question. You can just unplug it if you just want to make it stop working, but you do lose some backpressure (which means slightly cooler EGTs) if you gut it.

Ok thanks. I think I will just unplug it for now and maybe gut it when I get a dp and put it in in nicer weather. Too cold to start that!!! and I have to go to work way to early tommorow!!! LOL

Thanks for all the help guys!!

OK thanks for the help. Haven't had time to look at it!!! My wife couldn't get the old girl to start this am... Asked her if she plugged it in and this is the answer I get "Why do I have to plug it in? I don't have to plug my car in so why does it need to be plugged in??" I asked if she used the glow plugs at least.. "what are glow plugs??"

Needless to say she doesn't have a key any more!!!!!
