EBP sensor tube

Over the last few months I noticed the engine picking up a slight vibration at low RPMs. It wasnít 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 didnít 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...

Replaced the EBP tube and problem solved.

Again, can anyone familiar with the fuel system explain how the EBP sensor is used in the fueling loop? Just curious. Thanks...

The pcm uses exhaust back pressure in combination with boost to decide how much fuel to inject.

Thanks FDD.
So EBP is a primary reference for fueling and boost is another. Are there any other references used by the PCM for base fueling?
