How to Change DPFE Sensor on a Ford Explorer Sport Trac Check Engine Light EGR
Our local shop wanted $381 to do this job and I have read online that some Ford dealerships charge upwards of $600. Total cost for me was $38 for the part, and about 5 minutes of easy labor. The part changed was a DPFE sensor, which effects Exhaust recirculation.. It was malfunctioning, so our check engine light would not go off. We were getting a light error code. P1400

P0401 EGR Insufficient flow test
Here is how to test code P0401 and the DPFE sensor. Sure, the DPFE has a
high failure rate, but do we "throw" the part at it, or do we test it to be
sure it's actually failed. AND, this is a great way to confirm the
repair to prevent a "come back"

How To Clean A Ford MAF Sensor - Simple & Effective
Cleaning a Ford mass air flow sensor. This procedure should work on most
Ranger Mustang Taurus F150
etc. from the 1990's and 2000's. After doing this, my truck performed much
better. Smoother running, and more responsive. I used paint thinner and
denatured alcohol with a cotton swab.

you have to be thinking - what can make both banks run lean. Here's how
to make this task simple with a smoke machine.

How to replace an O2 Sensor and save money.
I show you how to replace your O2 Sensor. This is being performed on a 1997
Chevy Tahoe. Automotive oxygen sensors, colloquially known as O2 sensors,
make modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible. They
determine if the air fuel ratio exiting a gas-combustion engine is rich
(with unburnt fuel vapor) or lean (with excess oxygen).
Ford Dash Lights & Shift Indicator Repair
This is a video of a 1997 Ford Explorer with burned out dash lights & an
inaccurate gear select indicator. I show how to remove the instrument
cluster, change the bulbs, & replace the shift indicator. While editing
the video, I noticed that I couldn't stop saying "now". Sorry. You'll see
what I mean at the end of the video.
Ford MAF Sensor Cleaning
Ford MAF Sensor Cleaning
FORD Mass air flow sensors are in charge of measuring the amount of air
that enters the engine. The FORD Mass Air Flow sensor is a very delicate
sensor. It uses two wires to measure the amount of air flowing into the
engine. The two wires are heated by electricity, and the more electricity
used to heat the wires, tells the ECU how much air is flowing past the
sensor's heated element.
Between very fine dirt and the trend towards oiled filters, it's very
important to clean the FORD MAF. Cleaning the MAF has so many benefits,
like reducing pinging, increasing mileage, and preventing it from burning
out, saving you lots of money. There's no reason to not clean the FORD MAF
sensor once every 6 months. Also clean it shortly after installing or
reinstalling an oil filed air filter.
You don't need many tools. You'll need a flat head screwdriver and safety
Torx or Tamper Proof Torx bits. Make sure you get the size seen on screen,
which is T-20.
Now, it's time for an important note. Only use the electric cleaner seen
here. It's ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER. This is the only thing you should
use to clean your MAF. Only ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER. No windex, no carb
cleaner, no brake cleaner, no rubbing alcohol, and absolutely no Q-Tips.

*This video is an EXPERIMENT I wanted to try on my car, and is for
INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content

I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something
new, regardless of the outcome.
Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the
downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often,
frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat.
I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the
converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle
out of gas etc... etc...
It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the
converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000
miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of
course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good
luck and have fun!
