There should no vacuum at the EGR valve at idle. Look at the solenoid that controls the EGR valve....it could be stuck open or the solenoid is shorted open

SOURCE: vaccum lines

There is a diagram for that system under the hood above the radiator, the 2 lines go to 2 exhaust tubes, one is pressure and one is reference, the hose size is different so you can't get them mixed up, the EGR "box" is the EGR pressure transducer and the signal from that controls the EGR through the Power Train Control Module AKA the PCM. You have to use special
Hi-temperature silicone rubber hoses from the Ford dealer, ordinary rubber hose will just burn up in short order, they are around $15-20

Well the code is telling what you already know, that the sensor is sending data that is too high. You would need to hook up a fuel pressure gauge and check the accuracy of the sensor.

My car overheated. changed gaskets p0401 light comes on when car reaches hot temperature.


p0401 is an insufficient EGR flow. check your vaccum line that is connected to the egr valve to see if it is cracked. then start the car and unhook the vaccum line and it should have suction similar to a vaccum. If that is good then you need to take your EGR valve off and look up inside of it and make sure it is not clogged up. Also look where the valve connects to the engine and make sure the hole there is not clogged up with carbon. If that is all clean then your egr valve is bad

You need an egr valve/egr valve control solenoid. You can get them through Napa, Carquest or Dodge. You may also need the coolant temperature sensor (for the ECM) as it may have damaged this in the process. Very common problem on the 4 and 6 cyl Dodge engines.

Hope that helps.
