EBPV stuck [email protected]!

Well, this thing is driving me nuts. I posted this on FTW as well. My EBPV valve has been sticking for a while now. Usually it only sticks for a mile or two in the AM but yesterday it was stuck partially closed and today its closed all the way and won't open. I drove 16 miles to work with the valve closed. I couldn't get over 50 mph and any hill I took dropped me under 35 mph. My egts are dangerously high and it wouldn't open up.

I would appreciate someone posting some information on "how to" remove the EBPV without changing pedestals. I'm also wondering if there's anything else I can do to correct this situation. For two weeks I didn't have a problem at all even when the temps were below freezing. Then last week the ICM went out and it sat for a week. I got it back on Saturday and the valve was sticking partially. Nows its Monday and the valve won't open at all. Not sure what its going to do this afternoon but the temps are over 50 today so hopefully it will open before the trip home.

I'm really tired of my wife's attitude but I do have to admit this truck is turning into a money pit. I'm getting very frustrated myself. I waiting on some more reviews about the 06 dodge trannys to see if I want to trade her in on something a little more reliable.

It's not hard to do, it just takes a little time. Since you live in CO you may want to think about this before you do it. I know that the EBPV is there to help with cold start warm up. It may not bother it to gut it, but I dunno. A friend of mine did mine a couple years ago and I have not had any problems but I live in TX.

Yea, I thought of that. First, I'm planning to move south soon. Second, it really doesn't get that cold here that often. When it does the truck is plugged in and I let it warm up. I really think its best when the temp is way below freezing for days on end. On my old engine it would open, even on the coldest days, before I even pulled out of the drive way.

have you thought about unplugging it first to see 9if that works? Might not be a bad plan before you gut it.......:shrug: :shrug: :shrug:

dog3434,
I now that you have a SD and mine is not, but since removing my EBPV I haven't seen a difference in warm up times. It's really not hard to remove.
Just my .02 worth.

Thanks for the responses. I would appreciate someone posting the location of the air and oil temp probes. I'm also not sure how to unplug the device. Do I have to wire the valve to keep it open?
