Default Bad Luck EBPV

ARGH!!! So sunday change my oil, change out to 203 t-stat, check all other systems ..I've been hard at upgrading my filtration to go Jackson to Revelstoke.

Last few mornings, I felt my waste gate was sticking when warming up, wasn't too concerned it's been cold.

Monday came out to truck to be"What am I leaking !!!" looking at a trail to my truck. OIL! did I not tighten filter, drain plug? No it's leaking off the end of block. I open the hood to the whole valley filled with oil.

With Skyski's advice I determine it's pissing out the EBPV actuator. Today I called Gillette Diesel, a well respected large regional shop outside SLC. They recommend changing whole pedestal for $385. Any thoughts, I've seem some other diesel forums where people are having them rebuilt. Gillette says the rebuild has marginal success Thanks in advance for your response.

MAJOR BUMMER as now I'll be driving the bone stock 01ex and burn about $500 in d2 and will not be able to touch truck until Feb 2 when I return.

At least it happened in my driveway and miraculously I believe I dumped most the oil in my driveway and engine seems fine when I added oil to find leak.

Can't you just replace the actuator or is it leaking from the pedestal itself?

Default could be wrong but...

I understand it as it's the seal in the pedestal theta the actuator moves through

Now is a great time for the ebpv delete. When do you leave for your trip?

Default lvn today

Leave today. Biggest challenge is I can't stop working, getting ready to deal more than an approximate diagnosis. For all the trouble with the EBPV, don't you think it helps warm up time?

My drive always starts with 2.5 miles of 30mph speed limit. I notice that during this initial stretch my EGT's are 800ish. But when I get to town 9 miles later my EGT's at 30mph are 400ish.

Definitely a $1 plug is better than $385 part.
I really appreciate the input N2

I would go for the delete too. Mine sticks when its cold as well and it does not get cold enough where I live to really be useful.

When I did my delete most people wrote little change not having it. I also removed the AIH.

I think you can freeze plug the valve and tie the butterfly open and address the issue when you get back.

Rebuild pedestal for $60ish with new actuator and guts. EBPV only helps warm engine when parked. Truck should return to low idle and valve open when brake is pressed. I think its a good thing....

You can delete the pedestal you have now with a 1/4 or 3/8" pipe plug. Just remove actuator rod, tap hole and plug - no way I'd buy a new pedestal, ever!!!

The valve is a little harder to delete. it can be wired open, but the right way is either get a 'high flow' outlet adapter (replaces the part with EBPV in it) or remove the shaft/valve and weld up the holes.
