It only has 96000 miles on it. the DFPE is a part that is hard to get. I will try the EGR first. thanks for the input.

Re: 2001 Ford Windstar trouble codes

If you put an EGR valve on it will be a waste of money. as a ford tech take my word for it the DPFE senser has been a problem senser for years. Time and time again somebody comes into the shop and tells us to put on this EGR valve the PEP Boys sold them and its not the problem. THe DPFE senser is cheaper and easier to replace. When you open your hood look right above the valve cover. The DPFE senser is a small black 3 wire senser with two small vacuum hoses coming off it as far as the mis fire try plugs and wires first hope this helps
