Where is the egr(dpfe) sensor located in ford explorer-xlt 2002

4.0 SOHC?

If so it will be on the drivers side of the engine. Look for the metal tube that goes into the upper plenum just behind the throttle body. Follow that metal tube and you will see to hoses coming off from it. Follow the hoses up to the DPFE sensor.

It is common for the sensors to stick at a certain voltage. With them unplugged the Computer should default a value of around 5 volts. With it plugged in the voltage should be around 1 volt (key on engine off). Voltage should increase as EGR flow increases. You can supply vacuum to the EGR valve with the engine running. If the engine stalls the EGR is working and the DPFE is most likely bad. If it doesn't the EGR is not working and the DPFE is not your problem.

Also make sure you check the two hoses carefully. They do get old and crack/burn out. If they are leaking the sensor will not be able to sense EGR flow accurately.

97% of the time it is the DPFE sensor. The other 3% are bad hoses, EGR, wiring, etc.

Engine light on 2002 Explorer. engine code P1400

This may have to do with a bad wiring. Check all the wiring associated with EGR operation. Whenever a computer throws a code about high or low circuit voltage, it is usually attributed to abnormal wiring.

What tool/how do you remove tube from egr valve on 2002 ford explorer v6? I have tried std 1 1/16" wrench, but there is no room to move given the location of the egr valve/tube. Is there a specialty tool...

The only other thing you may be able to try is using an adjustable wrench with a shorter handle, these are a pain to get to no matter what you do, but sometimes the adjustable wrench trick will work. Hope this helps
