EBPV Sensor Tube

Installing new engine, and snagged some manifolds from a Med Duty truck because they were in much better shape. The pass side manifold has a plug which is frozen in and stripped. Do I need to go through the trouble of drilling it out?
The truck has a non ebpv ped, is the sensor required, will I get a CEL with out it, or could I just leave it plugged in with out the tube on it?

Re: EBPV Sensor Tube

You could just leave the sensor plugged in without the tube and it shouldn't set the CEL (it will set a code) unless it's a 1997 (and I can't remember, but may only be Cali 1997 trucks). Cheers!

You can leave it plugged in and not run the ebpv and be just fine.

Re: EBPV Sensor Tube

If you are not chipping the truck with a programer that does not need the EBPS then you will be fine. If not fix it because it also has to do with your trans shift points and fuel delivery.
