Not sure what your diagnosis was but usually it is not the valve that goes bad. Its usually the DPFE sensor. Both these parts are easty to replace. The EGR valve looks like a flying saucer on top of the engine with a vacuum line going to it. Its most likely green line. The DPFE isnt far away from it. There are two lines going to it and an electrical connector.

    How would your car (2001 Focus) react if either you ERG sensor or valve need to be changed and would they both cause engine light to come on.


    The idle would be rough. And the check engine light will come on. It can be cleaned out or replaced, They are about $50 and up. Hope this helps.

    Need a pic veiw of 2004 ford f350 6.0L diesel EGR


    1st of all when Ford started out with putting "EGR's" on those diesel engines, they rushed it and are nothing less than a pain in the ***! i recommend having an EGR cleaning service performed by your local Ford dealer, i know they charge up the wazoo, but they're the best people to perform the service period.this is a VERY common problem with those engines and that service is "supposed" to be performed every 30K I believe. i dont recommend attempting to remove and service it youself, this WILL only make it worse.

    Change erg valve and oil senser and location of each


    before we repalce these can I ask why.

    Generally a low flow egr code is not the valve. Its either the DPFE sensor or the passage in the intake for the egr valve is clogged.

    If the car struggles at idle and the oil light comes on then the light works and the sensor works.

    A stuck open EGR valve could cause a struggling idle so in this case the EGR valve would need to be replaced but not the oil sender.

    Engine service light


    The DPFE (Diferential Pressure Sensor)sensor is usually mounted on the engine and is connected to the pipe that runs from the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve with two rubber hoses. When the sensor goes bad, the Check Engine light comes on and typically sets any or all of teh following fault codes: P0171 & P0174 (lean codes), and/or P0401 (insufficient EGR flow). Nine out of ten times, the fault is not a bad EGR valve or a vacuum leak, but a bad DPFE sensor. A replacement costs about $112 at Ford, or about $48 at an aftermarket auto parts store.I hope this helps.
