Question I think my ebv closed?

I was letting my truck idle before I ran it the other day and after about a minute it started making a hissing noise like something was shoved up the tail pipe. I believe this is the ebv but it was 60 degrees outside. To my knowledge, I thought the ebv should only close when it is really cold outside? Should I be worried about this or is it normal?

just unplug it. It is located at the bottom of the pedistal, it's a yellow rubber boot with a clip on it flip the clip and pull out the wire. Problem solved, you can always plug it back in later if you want.

Was it very cold last night where you were? I believe it comes on/off based off of oil temp, so if the oil was still very cold it could come on. Mine is gone, either way. I deleted it all together, new non-ebv pedestal, and I gutted the turbo exhaust and plugged it. Bye-bye!

lol it was cold for me...I live in Texas so it doesn't really ever get truly cold like you guys up north deal with. It was 55 degrees.


And thanks srtokin I'll probably just do that since I don't think I will ever need it living down south.

Is there a performance increase to gutting the ebv and changing to a non-ebv pedestal?

You can eliminate the potential for future leaks if you get a non-ebpv pedestal, and it won't make your truck slower when it closes in cold weather. It does go off right when you hit the accelerator, but they can malfunction. The benefits of removing that butterfuly valve are less resitriction, which usually results in 50-100* EGT drops, not so much for performance though.

As long as it only comes on while you sittinng still and only when the engine is relitivly cold then your ok. Mine was coming on while going down the highway, thats the only reason mines unpluged.

Thats cool to know cause mine comes on and with my 5" exhaust its loud as hell, plus it pulses i guess. It sounds like it open and closes, almost like a lope.
It doesnt get that cold down here in the south plus i always let the truck come up to temp before i drive.
