02 Windstar.....egr code

My wife has an 02 Windstar that has codes for EGR flow and cyl 5 misfire. Being familar with the 3.0L in cars, I'm fairly certain the valve is the issue. My question is; has anyone changed them in a mini van? Any special steps to take or pitfalls to avoid?

Re: 02 Windstar.....egr code

I doubt the valve is the problem. Almost never change egr valves on older fords. More likely cause is the DPFE sensor,plugged egr passages,or rubber DPFE hoses. Look at the two rubber hoses from egr tube to the sensor. If ok either needs sensor or passages plugged. As for the misfire need to determine if its compression,fuel,spark issue. Does it miss at all times or under load?

It seemed like it missed most under egr command off scenarios where it should NOT be getting exhaust gases

So it's missing with egr off? In that case need to evaluate misfire more. Possibly no link in two codes.
