Hey all,
Well i was plowing tonight and my truck would lost power and it sounded like alot of air was being pushed out the exaust. Is this air in the fuel lines? I dont know what it could be. Do i need to replace to blue fuel lines underneath the fuel filter bowl. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Mine started on a road trip from FL to WY. A bit unerving when you have that far to go.
Sorry, but I don't have a quick fix for you, I will follow this thread so I can fix mine too.
I just had mine replaced about 5k miles ago... have you ever had yours replaced?

On the hot side of the turbo I believe. I was at the stealership for a IDM fiasco.... another story, however, they replaced it, i had no idea what it was and figured I got took. I have read on hear about wiring in a switch to operate it manually.... I think that it would be a great idea, as when it is closed it is supposed to work like a psuedo engine brake.....

Unplug the plug that is under the turbo and your problem should go away forever. It is in fact the EBPV that is causing your problem. When unplugged the EBPV returns to an open state ans stays there. It will not hurt anything and the only reason we have it is to promote quicker heating of the engine in cold temps.

Really? When? Is it coming in the form of cash, check, or money order? Just kidding. Glad I could help.
