EBP sensor tube
Over the last few months I noticed the engine picking up a slight vibration at low RPMs. It wasn’t bad and sort of came and went. With 340k miles I attributed it to age and normal ware.
Well, the other day I pulled into a fuel station and noticed a very rough idle. Before I could wrap my mind around the vibration problem I was engulfed in a cloud of white smoke.
Fast forward to today... After reading many threads here I figured the likely problem was a bad injector. I wanted to check the easy/cheap things first so I pulled the EBP sensor tube to check and clean, it has never been removed. Initially I was disappointed because even though it had carbon residue it was far form being stopped up.
At this point I was focusing on the tube ends and didn’t really look at the tube itself. When I shot some cleaner in it I was surprised to see it shoot out the side. Anyway the photo is what I found.
I hope this is my problem and I ask anyone here with experience, what sort of problems would a hole like this in the EBP tube lead to? Thanks...
