truck looses boost going at crusing speeds and then comes back to life once i get in to it harder. I can hear what sounds like air escaping, but like i said above if i get into it harder it boosts up.

Any ideas??

It will go away after about 30 minutes most of the time.

Is it cold out? Is the truck up to operating temps? Sounds like EBPV. Do a search on it and you will find a bunch of stuff.

If it does it while cruising then the ebp tube is prolly clogging up, but at the same time it's job is to close to aid in engine warm up.

Fix is to gut it as in removing it.



BTW Just seen your location, my grandparents use to have a place there before my grandpa died. Used to be up there every summer for the fair and 4th of july, miss it up there.

Nope, I unplugged mine then deleted it once I was able to.

I remember being up there before there was a walmart or a home depot and a lot of other things up there.

I can get you a price on a non ebpv turbo pedestal, you will then just need a small pipe plug to plug the hole where the rod is for the valve.


I havent been up there in a few years, kinda hard since my grandpas passing. I'm only a few hrs south of ya over by flint.
