LOL...This Car Hates me!!



Hello All:

Guess What...That's Right, the CEL came back on!!! The Dreaded P0401 Code...LOL

This Car Hates me...LOL...Well I know what I have to do,But my Question is:

Why did Ford think it had a Better Idea when it came to the DPFE sensor, and that Damn Pipe clogging up??

I have been told this is a common problem, with Ford...

One more Question:

Is there a way to bye-pass that Sensor, and if so, what would it do??Mmmmm

I don't know of any way to bypass it. Make sure the hoses are on good and I'v seen some reversed. Not on a Taurus but it may be able to be done.

Also, make sure the EGR valve gets a vacuum when it's supposed to. (That EGR vacuum regulator again.)

Ouh, you may block EGR pipe, but you will get DPFE related codes.
The better idea to repare all. Usually P0401 appeares when DPFE is bad ore EGR valve is too old and faulty
