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
Ford explorer engine trouble
(SOLD) but feel free to watch or comment
I have been getting worse gas mileage and a "ticking" noise in the engine
since I used supertech oil. I used to get 400 miles per tank now I get 200
per tank. runs alright, changed plugs, wires, coil pack, put in new
valvoline oil, fuel filter, air filter, nothing. just looking for some feed

Ford Explorer 4X4 Front Hub & Bearing Repair
In this video I go over replacing the front hub and bearing on the Ford
Explorer line of vehicles from start to finish. This bearing is common for
abs codes but more common for a grinding and or humming noise.

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).
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"
P0401 EGR Valve Port Cleaning
This is my DIY for clearing the CEL code P0401 (EGR Insufficient Flow) on a
98 Honda Prelude.
In cars with OBD2 if the EGR valve is restricted by carbon deposits it will
detect that and throw a CEL. To get rid of that CEL you must clean out the
carbon to allow flow.
After combustion occurs within the engine it creates Exhaust. Gas from the Exhaust straight from the engine is very bad for
the air. The EGR valve recaptures that Exhaust and runs it through the combustion
process again, which lowers the temperature of the fumes (Exhaust gas) and lowers the amount of pollution
exiting into the atmosphere.
If you don't fix it you won't pass SMOG in California. You may experience
rough idling and poor acceleration.
Get your "EGR port plugs" from Honda. They will have it.
Removing the injectors are important to allow clearance to the port plugs.
When you pull out the injectors you might as well clean them since they are
Slide hammers make pulling the port plugs out easily.
Drill with a bit the size of your tap. Drilling halfway through the port
plug to should be enough distance to fully grab the port with the slide
If after you clean your ports and valve the CEL has not been cleared, you
EGR valve maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.
How to Change the DPFE Sensor on a 2001 Ford Focus
Changing the DPFE Sensor (Delta/Differential Pressure Feedback EGR Sensor)
Most shops in Dallas will charge $280 for parts and labor, but the Ford
Factory part is $61 and can be changed in less than 5 minutes without any
tools. Some DPF Sensors are a different shape and location, even though you
may have a 2001 Focus with the same specs. The other type is $61 from

*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
shown in this video is not intended to encourage emissions test cheating.
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!

1999 Ford Explorer, 4.0L OHV Engine - Vacuum Leak ??? - video 2
1999 Ford Explorer, 4.0L OHV Engine - Vacuum Leak search.
I think there is a vacuum leak in the upper intake plenum gasket. This
leak is causing a Check Engine Light (CEL) code of P0171 (Bank 1 lean) and
P0174 (Bank 2 lean). There are many reports of this type of Vacuum leak on
the various Ford forums and some great how-to's on making this repair.
Where is my leak??? This is me spraying carburetor cleaner all over the
area of the upper intake gasket area and plenum (plastic).
