Subscribing

I can count on 1 hand the amount of times the high idle came on and it was for maybe 15 seconds. Even at 20 below if its plugged in it does not come on.

from what i am finding out it is a oil temp sensor, my truck starts up and idles at about 650-700 rpm, no high idle for a bit and than down to regular idle. it does not matter how cold it is, it always does that.

so did you have a check engine light, or just the truck wasnt running right?

I have no check engine light, just the fact that it doesnt give me high idle at start up

engine light was on, so i went and got the scanner. I havent ever noticed a high idle when its cold out. The Exhaust Back Pressure Sensor...operates the EBPValve in the turbo, will close, causing the engine to work harder, building heat faster.

well i know either i need to clean the ebps or replace it since until the truck is warm it like driving with an engine brake on, could the reason the truck wont idle up at start up be also from the ebps?

The electrical connection is broken off my Engine Oil Temperature sensor, all it seems to do is tell the glow plugs to stay on, as if the engine were cold, even when it is warmed up. Idle is fine, runs good. Check engine light is on, but no code is set.

Does anyone have a part number for the EOT sensor?

Update:
Got one from the local Ford dealer, p/n: DY-961 F5AZ-12A648-AB

'97 Ford F350 4X4 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel
