EBPV Question

Hey guys looking for some help. I have a 96 F250 4X4 Crew cab short box with a PSD. Tymar Intake, 3.5 downpipe, and 4inch exhaust, 2 inch suspention lift with 33X12.5 tires. Everything else is factory. I have 190,000 miles on it with no problems. I have been playing the plug on the ebpv. I had unpluged it for a while and noticed that my oil levels were lower then normal. Is this normal with that or is there a problem? I pluged it back in and then I noticed that the oil levels had returned to the fill mark and I had not added any oil to make up the loss from the unplugging. I have noticed a few MPG difference when it is plug in. It seems to get better MPG unplugged. I am not sure what is really going on here and I hope someone can help me out. Thanks. Nick

If you unplugged it and lost oil, then plugged it back in and gained oil, I think you had better try it again. You should gain fuel mileage with it unplugged because it won't activate and it won't load your engine.

I am not sure what you by trying it again. I noticed that with it unplugged and i run it easy the oil level is just a little low on the stick, how ever if I run it hard it will show full on the stick. Now with it plugged in the oil never moves on the stick no matter how hard I drive it. I am not trying to be stupid here just looking for some help.

All I know is watch out because that oils your turbo and if you disconnect the electrical it could send the wrong signal.

Now here is the latest. I plugged it back in and it has been 3 days and I have not lost any oil, but non seems to have returned this time. I had added a half quart to fill it and it has now not moved from that spot plugged in. I think I am going to leave it plugged in unless someone can provide me how to prevent it from loosing the oil. Thanks
