SOURCE: Failed Emissions test. OBD
The trick to setting all the monitors is:
Make sure you have more than 1/4 tank of fuel but no more than 3/4.
Clear codes then Do Not cycle key off. Start vehicle and drive,make sure you do at least 2 minutes of steady spead between 40-50 mph and at least 2 minutes at 50-65 mph, usually about a 20 to 25 mile drive will set them..
If you turn the ignition off before the monitors complete then EVAP will have to see a 6 hour cold soak before it will attempt to run again.

SOURCE: EGR Sensor/valve replacement
The EGR is a three part series; the valve, soleniod, and sensor. They are fairly easy to change, a few hours with a buddy. They are located on the top back, center of the engine. Take a look you will see something that is small and cylinder like with a wire connected to the top, that is the vavle. I would replace all three at once as they are all together and you have to take of one to take of the others. The total price will cost you about $250 in parts. However, you must know your engine type on the Sable/Tarus as the parts are different per engine.

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.

Yes that is what is wrong the intake manifold is plugged with carbon restricting EGR flow you need to clean out the ports to correct the problem if you run the car to long you will burn the DPFE ( the EGR pressure sensor ) out agian
