Code P0401 Insufficient Exhaust Gas Flow

I have 96 explorer 4wd 4.0 engine with 70k miles. hastily replaced egr
valve and reset code but code came back after 2nd start. getting very
week vacuum at the vacuum supply hose (less than 1" i believe). zero
voltage read at EVR Solenoid power supply but i'm not sure if i should
be getting 12v signal with engine hot and normal idle. supplying 12 vdc
doesnt seem to affect airflow through solenoid. any advice would be
appreciated. TIA

Re: Code P0401 Insufficient Exhaust Gas Flow

Usual culprit is DPFE... don't stick your finger over the vacuum hose
checking for vacuum... you're going to feel a "nibble" because the EVRV is
duty cycled. Not sure how you are checking the electrical side of the
EVRV... these have 12 volts supplied as long as the key is on... PCM
switches the ground side of the solenoid.

Thanx, Bob... there's lot's of times I come across sounding like a real
dick....truth of the matter is.... I'm a real dick. Just doing my part to

Re: Code P0401 Insufficient Exhaust Gas Flow

i was checking power supply to the solenoid with a dvm with the engine
hot and running. it showed 0 volts dc. dpfe seems to be consensus on
most of the forums i've checked. thanks for response.
