EBPV Deleted so now what the hell?!
Ok so the truck finally quit on me after a few months of running funny. The main issue was that upon startup, the damn CEL would come on and it would be slow to accelerate then it would shift really hard. Well after a few minutes, sometimes maybe even 30 sec, the light would go off and everything would be ok other than it would occasionally die when at a stop light. Well it finally got to the point where there was no power at all and it would creep about 5 mph.
So i replaced some leaking fuel lines, burnt connector on valve cover, got new sleeves and clamps for intercooler piping, new turbo, and non ebpv pedestal. Well the truck runs a lot better but still has the CEL on upon start up, accelerates slow, and shifts hard.
My question is what could be causing this to happen if the EBPV is gone? I have read several different ways to get rid of the code but it seems to me that when I did the EBPV all I should get is a soft code. Seems like if I plugged the tube it would be the same as it being clogged up so I dunno. Anybody have any thoughts? What is involved in a proper EBPV delete using a non EBPV pedestal as opposed to just gutting the EBPV?
