Error code P0402 2001 Ford Escape

Okay, I posted on this site back on April 7,2009 about error code "P0402" for my 2001 Ford Escape. I have replaced the following parts:
EGR valve, DPFE sensor, idler air control valve, EGR vacuum sylenoid and "ALL" four of the O2 sensors...I AM AT A LOSS! The light came back on again! I am about to drive the truck into a lake! That should fix the problem.

This might sound crazy but it works with these Escapes most of the time. Go buy a can of Seafoam from your part store. With the engine off, disconnect the brake booster vacuum line and place it in the can of sea foam. Start your engine and keep your foot on the gas pedal and keep the RPM's around 2k.The vehicle is going to smoke like crazy for 10 minutes or so, when the smoke clears up for the most part, go drive it for a couple of miles and see if that helps. It cleans out the carbon buildup from you intake and sensors and takes care of that code you getting most of the time. OR, you purge canister needs to be replaced...

Getting error code U0414 P0118,P2060F what does that mean and what parts do I need to change for my ford escape 2008

With all these codes you need a professional to help fix this, you will likely throw parts at it and still not fix it. If you do want to try a repair at very least go on eBay and try and find a used factory repair manual set. If you google each code the explanation of the code will show, but it will only give you a system of the car, that means it can be a sensor or a part or the wiring or the computer that runs the system. Good luck

2003 Ford Escape will not start. Error code P0446 came up on the reader. Replaced starter and did not help.

That code does not have anything to do with it not starting. That code is for EVAP control leak. What is the car doing when you try and start it? Does it turn over or anything?

P1676 error on a ford excape - what is the cause of this error code

is this Autozoned code? or a real scan tool. for modern cars.

did they show you, tell you or did you write it down wrong?

do post what tool produced this code, its rare.

a Honda Ford? really??? is this an engine swap?

if not a honda. you might want to post to Ford, as we dont have books on fords here.

but like all DTCs there are many causes, and the tech does the test

stated in the FSM. got FSM? factory service manual... youd need that.

no engine stated, or any year, Ford, so not possible to answer lacking that..

P1 xxx means factory ford only code. do not read other makers of cars codes, just ford. or fail big time..

i looked from 05 to 2011 codes for ford escape and get zero

Radio code ford escape 2003

You need to take the radio out of the dash. Post up the serial number beginning with the letter M and I will give you your code.

If the serial begins with V this is a newer radio and you cannot get these for free anywhere on the net. I recommend this site for the newer V serials requiring codes. Its the cheapest and best around. Click here.

2001 Ford Escape error code P0402

Ok here is the solution when I had the exact same problem with my 2001 Ford Escape:

Idler air control valve
EGR vaccum sylenoid
EGR valve

I did all of this work myself (and as a girl it was not hard at all), it cost me around $170.00 for all of the parts, had it done in less than 2 hrs., erased the codes and have not had a problem since then! I hope this helps you out, cuz it sure would have helped me out when I encountered the same problem.
