Ebp sensor

If i unhook this sensor will it effect the way the engine runs, Im guessing i need to clean it cause my milege is like 10 in town and im wondering if you have to run tis sensor pluged in and it can just be tied off so it doesnt interfere with the belt. Thanks.

I don't think you should unplug it, here is a link that shows how to clean the EBP sensor and the tube leading up to it. If the sensor is plugged too bad, then he tells you to replace it. My truck was low on power until I cleaned the tube and sensor, and it probably affects your mileage also.

I did the cleaning this past weekend and i think it took me longer to find the tools then it did to remove and re install the tube. When reinstalling you will want a second set of hands on the man just to help line things up.

I think it took me 20 minutes total to remove, clean and reinstall. Its simple. my tube was not that dirty and I replaced my sensor because i figured after 160k its got to be dirty, and the sensor was. I got the new sensor on ebay for $20 shipped for a new ford part. lucky find i guess.

I dont know if its me or what but my truck feels a little bit smoother and a little faster on the low end. now when i say little i mean LITTLE its not like a night and day difference, but it seems better.

search around. if you can get one for a few bucks like i did then replace it. if you have to spend 170 at the dealer, then that would be your call.

sounds like that little sensor is kinda important. I dont know enough about it to make a call. CSIPSD says it uses that for fuel maps and he knows his sheet.
