hey mullet!

You helped me with my 01 Ranger showing a code po401 by suggesting the dpfe sensor. I got that info from a post you made for someone else. Now I have the same code on my 05 Explorer 4.0...............don't see the dpfe, I assume it is built into the EGR valve? Is replacing the valve the likely fix for this vehicle or something else? Thanks. Tracy

Re: hey mullet!

Nope. An 05 also has a DPFE sensor, but it may not look the same as the one on the Ranger. You can tell a DPFE by looking for the 2 small hoses that run from the EGR tube to the sensor.

Good luck!

confused Re: hey mullet!

That's strange, the parts departments at the 2 dealerships here say they don't list it either. I'll look closer tomorrow. Thanks TG

Hi Tracy,
After a certain year model, which I think was 2004, Explorer engines don't have a DPFE anymore. They have an EGR assembly that Ford calls EGR Module and that has no serviceable parts. The equivalent of the DPFE is part of it and you'll see the 2 vacuum hoses now connected to it. I've replaced a couple of these on V6 that had the MIL on but can't remember the codes that were in them at that time. So far, none on V8s. Here's a pic that shows the module. Cheers
