SOURCE: P0153 error code for 2000 Ford Taurus SES V6 3.0L

the tech is right.. the trouble codes do not tell you what is wrong with the car... they just give you a general area to look in which involves testing multiple components and sensors. if the tech quoted you for and hour diag time i would say that you should at least expext to spend somewhere in the 300$ area depending on part cost.

My 2000 ford taurs engine check light is on with an emmission code p1405 what should i be checking?

Check vacuum lines running to the valve covers the rubber end sometimes get holes and have to be replaced. One on the front and one on the back valve cover. Also check the pvc valve tube running under the throttle body same thing the rubber connector gets a hole in it. One more thing check the gas filler neck when you take off the gas cap look for hair line cracks in the plastic coating thats on the inside at the top its gray in color.

Check Engine Light On-OBD reads two codes P1405 & P0401

It is located on the right front valve cover area. It will be either black or silver and have a 3 wire connector with wire colors BN/WH,GY/RD,BN/LG. It will have 2 rubber hoses going from it and connecting to two metal tubes which run to the exhaust.

Now what sets the the P1405 is.
While driving, the EGR monitor commands the EGR valve closed and checks the differential pressure across the EGR orifice. The test fails when the signal from the DPF EGR sensor indicates EGR flow is in the negative direction. Make sure both of the hoses are hooked up and not damaged.
P0401 sets when:
The EGR system is monitored during steady state driving conditions while the EGR is commanded on. The test fails when the signal from the DPF EGR sensor indicates that EGR flow is less than the desired minimum.
So the DPFE could be causing both codes.
I would also recommend that you take a hand vacuum pump and pump vacuum on the EGR while engine is running and make sure you have a drop in RPM so you know that the EGR ports are not stopped up,they are bad about this too.
As far as the rattling converters this could possibly have an effect because it does use exhaust back-pressure along with vacuum to help open the EGR but if the exhaust is still basically stock this probably won't have enough effect on the back pressure to cause this unless they have stopped up and have so much back pressure it is blowing the hoses off of the DPFE or getting so hot it melts them. You can check this with a vacuum/pressure gage, just hook it into one of the hoses from the DPFE and you should have 1 PSI at idle and 3 to 4 PSI at wide open throttle. Anything more would be a restriction.
If all of this is ok then replace the DPFE.

CODE P1405

Check the hoses to the DPFE sensor from the exhaust pipe, the sensor is near the EGR valve, if the hoses are ok then replace the sensor, careful not to tear the special heat resistant silicone rubber hoses, they are about $10 each and ordinary rubber hose will burn up.
