1405/405 error code for ford ranger 1996


P1405 is an EGR code this can be caused by a bad EGR valve and vaccum selonoid and or a bad DPFE sensor and blocked or melted hoses going to the DPFE.I usally remove the EGR Valve and using a hand held vaccum pump ck the Valve to see if it opens correctly if it is then ck the DPFE hoses if they are ok . Now if the EGR valve is bad You need to replace the DPFE and the Selonoid and the valve because the Valve not working burns them up internally. If the Valve is good first replace the selonoid ... its the cheapiest .... if that doesn't fix it replace the DPFE and the hoses going to it . If you know some one with a good Scan tool it may have a EGR self test prcedure built in like mine does and makes this easier but if not i have told you how with out a scanner

I have a tropubleshooting code of P1405. On a ford Expedition 5.4l. Where do i fine the DPFE sensor (DPFE sensor upstream hose off or plugged.. aaECM detected EGR flow in a negative direction with aan


DPFE sensor failures are VERY COMMON on Ford vehicles. However, clogged EGR ports are also very common on 5.4L Ford engines. The DPFE sensor is located on the left side of the engine. It connects to two silicone rubber hoses that connect to the steel EGR tube coming from the back of the engine to the EGR valve. (See picture of the sensor below)

Another common failure is a DPFE sensor that has melted due to excessive exhaust back-pressure. If you find the DPFE sensor melted, suspect a restricted exhaust. (smashed tailpipe, clogged catalytic converter, etc..)

My 2002 Escape started shifting badly and I smelled something melting, I looked under the hood and the EGR sensor was laying on a hot manafold, melted, and the hoses are gone and I don't know what goes...


Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

The hoses connect to the EGR pipe there are two different size connections one is smaller than the other and the hoses are two different sizes. The DPFE sensor also has a small and larger port connect all the small ends with the small hose it goes EGR tube, small hose, DPFE then do the same with the large port.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

My code is p1401 we have checked the egr valve and it is not clogged and its still running very rough


By searching for DPFE, you should find threads with links to pictures/diagrams of the DPFE and EGR and their location. When you find them, check and make sure the hoses have not come loose/melted/developed cracks. If they look fine, 95% of the time the DPFE is the culprit and replacing will remedy the problem.

PO402 trouble code....how is this repaired


Exhaust gas recirculation flow excessive. First things to check is your vacuum hoses to egr position sensor (Dpfe sensor) Egr solenoid & egr valve. If they are off, melted or sucked in they need to be replaced. Usually a specific code will be set for that but not always. Of the three the dpfe sensor also known as egr position sensor is the most common & easiest to replace. Next in order is the egr solenoid. Lastly if it comes to changing egr valve make sure to clean all carbon build up in cavity that egr mounts to. They commonly plug up.

Do you mean "DPFE"? DPFE stands for Delta Pressure Feedback EGR sensor. It is the sensor that tells your onboard computer whether the EGR Valve is opening up when it is told (by the computer) to do so. It has 2 hoses made of high temperature silicone that connect to two small metal tubes that protrude from the larger metal tube that connects the EGR Valve to the exhaust maifold. Sometimes the high temperature exhaust gasses will burn the DPFE sensor nipples if the vehicle is equipped with the black plastic DPFE sensor. This is sometimes caused by a restriction in the exhaust system such as a bent pipe or a clogged catalytic converter. In such cases, replacement of the DPFE sensor alone will result in a repeat repair.
If your vehicle has a build date prior to May 2002. there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) pertaining to your DPFE sensor - I would recommend having it checked out by a professional.

Dpfe sensor broke in the REF tube


One hose is reference the other is pressure, the hoses are different sizes, do you have the factory high-temp silicone hoses required? they are different sizes so you can't mix them up, vacuum hose will burn up in short order, the failure of this sensor is almost always caused by excessive exhaust back pressure, you may have a cat converter starting to plug up.
