2001 ford crown victoria 4.6L engine with codes p1288 and p1401

The 1401 code is for a DPFE switch or connector that is not sending the correct signal the PCM expects. The 1288 code is for a temperature sensor which may be showing a higher cylinder head temperature due to low coolant levels, blockage of water flow or bad thermostat.

The DPFE gives readings of the mix of exhaust gas returning into the intake manifold to be burned again to lower emissions.

The combination of these 2 codes can mean that too much exhaust gas is too frequently going into the intake manifold and is overheating the cylinder head causing the 1288 code. So fixing the DPFE may eliminate this secondary error which may reset itself after the first problem is fixed.

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1401 indicates that the EGRP SIG circuit input is greater than the self-test maximum.

Possible Causes:

-- Damaged EGR Position sensor/EGR valve assembly.
-- Open in EGR Position sensor harness circuit.
-- Short to EGR Position sensor harness circuit.
-- Damaged EGR Vacuum solenoid.
-- Damaged EGR Vacuum solenoid harness circuits.
-- Damaged EGR Vacuum solenoid-valve.
-- Damaged PCM.

Hope this helps, also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Car sometimes wont start unless you spray starter fluid, just replaced filter. oem codes are p0734 and p1401

P0734 = 4th gear incorrect ratio (that's the torque converter 'lock-up' clutch - inside the converter).
P1401 = doesn't exist for 2002 Hyundai Accent's
P1401 exists for 2000 Accent = DM-TL Air Pump Motor Curent Draw is higher or lower than expected (normal is 17-36 mA). DM-TL = Diagnostic Module for Tank Leakage & is part of the Evaporative Emissions Control System.

These two DTC's are not associated/part of the Accent's Engine Managemenet System (EMS).
Best to have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this starting problem with your vehicle.

Check engine light says on . code 1401,what does it mean?

P1401 - DM-TL air pump motor current draw is higher or lower than expected (normal = 17-36 mA).

This is an electrical issue with the pump, it's not related to a leak in the evaporative emission control system.

00-30-001 2000 ACCENT DMTL DIAGNOSIS: DTC CODES P1401, P1402 AND P1403

p1402 - dm-tl air pump motor is shorted or disconnected.

2000 model year accent is equipped with a new enhanced evaporative emission system. this new system is capable of measuring leaks as small as 0.020" diameter. the new system pressurizesthe evaporative emission system with a diagnostic module for tank leakage (dm-tl), while the previous model's system appliedengine vacuum through the purge valve to detect system leaks.

service information
vehicles that have the check engine light illuminated and have dtc p1401, p1402 and p1403 stored in the ecm should have their electrical systems diagnosed related to the appropriate dtc. these codes are not related in any way to an evaporative emission system leak. the conditions that set the diagnostic codes areas follows:
p1401 - dm-tl air pump motor current draw is higher or lower than expected (normal = 17-36 ma).
p1402 - dm-tl air pump motor is shorted or disconnected.
p1403 - dm-tl changeover valve is shorted or disconnected
