EBPV problems

Hey guys. I've been lurking for a while and have found some really great info on this site.
I've had a 2000 250 7.3 2wd 6 speed manual for about 4 years now. I am very familiar with the hissing sound the EBPV makes when it's cold out.

Within the last year my valve has started opening and closing in about 2 to 3 second intervals, and just keeps cycling. The valve will operate when I'm trying to accelerate or when idling. It's a real pita when I'm trying to get up to speed, and it's pretty dang dangerous when driving on ice or snow. The thing won't settle down until it's well into operating range either.

I noticed this summer the valve would open and close even though the temps outside were pushing 80 degrees F. After I tap the brake pedal it would quit and then do it again 2 or 3 more times.
I have cleaned and inspected the EBP tube a few times, I also installed a new International sensor. Found it on ebay for $5 brand new.

As a side note, I also did the Stancor mod a few months ago. Though Stancor doesn't make the part anymore. Now you get it through White/Rogers.

Does anyone have any insight on what I should look for or test to get my EBPV to operate normally? I don't want to delete it, I just want it the way it used to be.

Thanks in advance, Bill.

I'm aware of the option to delete the EBPV, and it may come down to that.
I was asking if anyone knew what to do to help fix my problem though.
Thanks, Bill.

no such thing as a kit. my exhaust is louder and much cleaner sounding.. not all mufflyyy noisy like the normal straight piped 7.3's anyway you remove the turbo and pedestal obviously. Drill out the butterfly valve, you can weld it or tap it(mines welded) tap the pedestal for a NPT plug(forget the size off the top of my head) and plug it. voila.

You can clean it and it would probably help..

Winter Operation, Hard Starting, Hissing Sound Etc...

I am thinking about deleting mine though, but either one would work.

Thanks cjcross.
Is there a way to clean the unit while it is still on the truck?
If I have to take it off I may as well do the delete mod, which I really don't want to do.
Does anyone else have any ideas?
Thanks guys, Bill.

you can see it if u remove the dp then maybe try letting some penetrating oil set on it for a few hours, just dont be alarmed by the smell when ur turbo warms up itll go away.
