Red face EBPV getting stuck

hey guys.

on my girlfriends truck the EBPV has been sticking for a few weeks now. I know that I could gut it or remove it but I kind of like having it there for the deceleration tune. I have heard in the past that the ebp tube coming from the passenger exhaust manifold can sometimes get clogged up. could this be the reason the valve has been sticking? thanks

does it just stay closed the whole time?
mine would stay closed when i was driving until the truck was warmed up.

you can always unhook the actuator or unplug the sensor at the base of pedestal for now.

It will come on and go off if you literally floor it. I know it should go off after moderate acceleration but it doesn't. It actually almost creates an egt issue. I will unplug the pigtail on the pedestal...I don't know why I didn't think of that...lol

EXACT same thing happened to our 450 at work after we got it back from a turbo rebuild. The actuator rod had come unhooked from the stud/nipple on the bottom of the turbo. Reinstalled the rod and clip and was good to go. The clip that holds it can be tricky so make sure its on there good
