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"

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!
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).

Smoke testing for codes P0171 P0174
These two codes mean a V style engine is running lean on both banks. So
you have to be thinking - what can make both banks run lean. Here's how
