EBPV

Ok, I have heard about some guys saying they disconnect there EBPV so they get that horribly annoying, embarrassing sound. What are your ideas on that. It just started getting cool here, below freezing and it seems to be sticking on this year and harder to get it to open up. I read somewere on here of how to clean the sensor and port but I dont rember were it was. Any Ideas

A diesel sounding like a jet engine is embarassing? When its cold that's what will happen at random

Some guys unhook em, some remove them completely, others, like me, just leave it. If you arent having problems with it id leave it, if you are, unplug or delete it.

You can take it off and use some carb cleaner on it. Might be impossible to take off with the turbo still in the truck though. Turbo is easy to remove though. Then pull the EBVP housing off and clean it up good and throw it back together.

i've heard you can just lube the ebpv pivot with pb blaster or the likes. the sensor and tube can be cleaned. you'll see the tube running from the passenger side manifold, on the front. it goes up the front of the engine to the top center of the front and on top of it sits the sensor.

you can remove and clean the sensor.

some ppl remove the tube and clean with a wire and brake cleaner but, i've heard of some cleaning it while installed with the sensor removed and just push the crap into the exhaust.

there's s good writeup on this site somewhere in the 7.3 section - i think Maintain wrote it.

if you're in cold weather, id vote to keep it as it helps the engine warm up...

You can lube the mechanism and get it freed up without pulling the turbo. This will usually work unless it is really corroded!!! Why is it when a part starts to malfunction that everyone says "Remove it, you don't need it!!!" , why not figure out why it isn't working and fix it?

Thanks for all the input. I figured that if Ford put it on the truck it obviously have a reason for it. Ill see if I can crawl up on the engine and find everything and get it all cleaned up.
