EBP Valve

So I have a 97 f250 auto 4x4 and the other day when i went to go to school, the truck ran like it had no boost or acceleration. Im pretty sure that it is the EBP sticking or somewhat. I talked to my local diesel mechanic and he said it was a wastegate or since they were not on these year trucks the EBP. I was really wondering, if I was just to unplug the sensor, do I need to do anything else? can i just secure the plug and let it be? or do i need to do anything else. Ive heard of gutting the valve but with being at school i really dont want to have to drive 3 hrs home to get it done and dont really want to pay to get it done. Thanks

How long did you let the truck warm up? How cold is it out?

Until the engine is up to temp the EBPV will work to allow the motor to warm up quicker! Leave it alone, it's doing what is suppose to? When the EBPV is kicking Lin while driving just give her a little more go pedal! It is a pain in the asss however it's doing what it's ment to do!

Alright. That's what I've been doing. I just didn't know if that sticking would hurt the motor or anything?

Mine does it to, if you wanted to do it correctly by deleting it, you can gut your turbo pedestal and do a EBPV delete, but the motor will take a lot longer to warm up! I have a delete pedestal for my truck but to lazy and un decided to install it!

So it won't cause any wear and tear just leaving it as it is?

Negative, now when it gets to operating temp it runs fine correct? If it did it ALL the time when motor was up to temp then I would say its sticking! But once the motor is warm it stops?

Yeah once the needle gets up to the c or a little above it goes away. It has just started it the last few cold days.
