EBP Tube

I want to clean the Exhaust Back Pressure tube but I am afraid I will break it off at the manifold. Does anyone know if I can clean it without removing it? I was thinking of taking the sensor off and cleaning the tube in place. With 480K plus miles on the truck I am not confidant I will not break it.

According to this you can just use a snake to clean it out... just remove the sensor...

Do you have a harbor freight near by? They have one that will work for 5-10 bucks.

I soaked my with WD40 because I was afraid of it breaking also. It was broken in half anyway. It looked like it's never been off. Nut still broke loose with no problems after about a 20 min soak tho. Had to get a new 1 at the dealer for about $75. Here is what it looked like. [IMG][/IMG]

Autozone actually carries these or they can get them the next day. Plus they are stainless. Just so you know, autozone calls them an EGR line. I don't know why since our trucks don't have an EGR, at least mine doesn't. I think I paid $35.00.

A piece of speedometer or choke cable will work. I used a piece of speedo cable in a cordless drill, worked like a charm.

Thanks for that tip hucorey! I just tried to clean mine - the wire I used went right throught the side of the tube. It looked pretty bad anyway so... off to Autozone tomorrow.
