Hey had same problem after turbo install reason is becuz the paper washer on there back down the shaft it is junk that washer. Pull out spider turbo and pedestal. Knock out the accuator rod on a hard surface the back side cap will pop out don't worry it won't break your eliminating it anyway. Now gut it. Now take a brass plug I think 3/8 tap the hole first then send plug in and seal it up with some tef tape place cap back in hole evenly around becareful of oring on the cap clean good put some grease on before the install back in. And reassamble bolts of pedestal and turbo with neverseize. Mine took 1.5 hours quick and easy. Its also called gutting the pedestal there is a write up somewhere in here. good luck bud BUY ALL NEW ORINGS AGAIN 4 OF THEM

If you still want the valve to work get a new rebuild kit. I think I got mine from Rifraff.

you will get a soft code. a stored one. since you have to unplug the plug on the pedestal and leave it unplugged. dfuser makes a ebpv eliminator that will take care of that. but it runs just fine.
