Read numerous posts that concluded an EBPV issue. Some posts recommended unplugging it from the pedestal. Does the sound stop once unplugged or is there another reason for unplugging it?
Thank you in advance.

Unplug it, and tie the valve open.
If you ever pull the turbo, delete it.

This started while away from home and tools. Will driving the truck cause damage?

Best not to drive it much if its staying closed as it restricts the exhaust quite a bit. Best to unplug and tie it open as suggested until you can fix, replace or delete it.

If the little release doesn't much, you could pry it off. Then just use some bailing or tie wire.

Usually when the valve is not working properly you just don't have much of anything when you give it the throttle and it is more of a whooshing sound as air tries to get past the obstruction of the valve.
