EBPV

Hello guys, the past couple morning have been cold, snowy, and windy...my ebpv keeps opening and closing when idling and I think its time to either get rid of it or do some maintenance. Recommendations on how to do maintenance? Never done it before. Or just a new pedestal? Thanks guys!

How cold does it get there? I would get rid of it and if you are worried about cold starts plug your truck in over night with a timer to turn it on a few hours before you leave.

You can find delete kits on ebay for about $150.

i removed mine completely, placed a bolt that didn't protrude into the exhaust passage and welded it in there, as for the pedestal, gutted and tapped the hole and used a bolt with sealant, theres a video on youtube, thats where i got my idea.

I'm leaning more toward either gutting it like your saying or installing a switch to be able to turn off the signal to the EBPV. Do you think a simple switch would work or do i need to go through the gutting process?

You could just unplug it. Just throws a soft code.

Just unplug it you can get a plug to put in the sensor wire to fool the computer so it wont throw a code that's all I did she still idles up when cold but the ebpv doesn't operate.

Where did you get your false plug?
