HELP my '97

HELP!! '97 Acting up

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ok heres what happened I was driveing down the road in the snow yesterday, when i suddenly lost control,went round and round and the truck cut off in the middle of the road while i was going around, cranked it back up and it started doing a "turbo surge" kinda thing but the boost was forceing itself to 0, so I parked it and let it idle for 15-20 min.s then cut it off and then drove it home just fine, woke up today 40-45+ degrees today drove around just fine, came out of walmart to night after being inside probally 30+ mins with the outside temp. around 20 degrees and when I came out I cranked the truck up and took off(no idle time,had to leave *long story*) so the truck started "surging" again, forcing the boost to 0 then back to where it was then back to 0 or very low HELP ME

Yes thats probably EBPV. Definatley sounds like EBPV. Maybe the turbo isnt getting enough oil if its leaking that bad? Someone will chime in I'm sure.

most likly your EBPV is closed. Do you have a weird swoshing niose? If so unclip the plug just under your turbo from the drivers side. The plug will stop the EBPV from actualing.

Just unplug it and it wont turn on anymore. Most people unplug it and then remove the butterfly valve that is in the housing just after the turbo. If you unplug it it should slow down your leak or stop it.
