Hissing when cold

My engine is making a strange hiss when its cold (even after I let it warm up for 10 min) It seems to lose power as well, but if I get on the throttle it goes away. If I let up it starts again. It goes away after about 5-6 miles of driving.

Any help would be great!!

Possible Exhaust leak that can effect turbo performance, but when the motor warms up and the metal expands the leak is minimzed and the sound dissapates and power is restored. This is my guess , I have exp this type of thing before.
I recently pulled my 7.3L PSD for a rebuild and my mech and I found an exhaust leak which was coming from the exhaust tubes that feed the drive side of the turbo. We noticed carbon depositis around the pipe and flange. This indicated a possible leak of exhaust gas pre turbo.
Good Luck.

no fear.

its your Exhaust Back Pressure Valve (EBPV). And it sounds like it is working properly. It closes off some exhaust, puts a load on the motor, and help the diesel warm up.

sounds like all is well, but if you want to conduct a test to make sure, read this thread...

Turbo Surge

someone goes into detail about how to disconnect the ebpv. it the sound goes away then i was right...LOL

Word!!!

I thought it was a vaccum leak at first, but then I realized I still have my EBPV connected and then took note of the cold. 1+1=EBPV!!!

In cold weather mine sounds like a mosquito sprayer until I touch the brakes.

99.5, the hissing sound could be the vacuum pump, or you could be hearing fuel and air being pushed through the filter bowl and pressure regulator.

Yeah, i ruled out the vacuum pump.

It is comin from the filter housing area....any common areas on this thing that i could start looking at. It squeals sometimes and other times i can just hear a leak of some sort. NO large fuel leaks. Could an air leak cause my truck to run hotter (egt's)? It makes the sound until i crack open the yellow drain thingy and let alittle fuel run out. Like my technical descriptions?

Any ideas guys???
