Exhaust Gas Recirculation System Is the main problem here. the other code P0118 may be a bad temprature sensor or your thermostate needs to be changed. Last it could be a weak water pump.
So what is an EGR system and how does it work? EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation, and as its name implies, this system allows exhaust gasses from your car to be re-circulated into the engine, helping to reduce emissions. These systems are mostly comprised of the EGR valve, a DPFE (Delta Pressure Feedback EGR) sensor, hoses, a vacuum regulator, some vacuum lines, wiring, the computer and the exhaust tube leading to the valve itself.
The car's wiring can be tested in the normal fashion by looking for broken and lose wire, and all vacuum lines can be checked easily for cracks, leaks and correct routing.
The last thing i would then check is the the EGR valve, EGR vacuum regulator and DPFE sensor (or similar flow sensor).
I hope this helps and good luck

The DPFE sensor is a very common failure on all Ford models. Just have the sensor replaced. Or do it yourself. It is very easy to change you can do it in 10 minutes.

CODE PO455 EVAPORATIVE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM LEAK DETECTED.POSSIBLE CAUSE - CANISTER VENT SOLENOID STUCK OPEN OR.FUEL TANK PRESSURE SENSOR HAS FAILED MECHANICALLY.OR BAD FUEL CAP. CODE PO1400 -DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE FEED BACK EGR SENSOR CIRCUIT LOW VOLTAGE DETECTED.POSSIBLE CAUSE -DPF EGR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORTED TO GROUND OR DPF EGR SIGNAL VREF CIRCUIT OPEN OR DPF EGR SENSOR IS DAMAGED OR HAS FAILED.I WOULD HAVE GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP TO USE THEIR DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO CHECK OUT YOUR EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM.AND EGR VALVE BECAUSE PARTS IS TOO EXPENSIVE TO BUY.IF YOU DONT NEED THEM.SEE YOU CAN REPLACE THE DPF EGR SENSOR AND THE CANISTER VENT SOLENOID.BUT IT COULD BE A LEAKING GAS CAP OR SOMETHING ELSE.SO LET GARAGE CHECK IT OUT.TO BE ON SAFE SIDE.NOW YOU CAN BUY THOSE 2 SENSORS AND IT COULD FIX YOUR RIDE.I KNOW MONEY IS TIGHT ECONOMY IS IN BAD SHAPE.

This may have to do with a bad wiring. Check all the wiring associated with EGR operation. Whenever a computer throws a code about high or low circuit voltage, it is usually attributed to abnormal wiring.
