I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with 168,000 miles on it. after a tune up I also had the check engine light come. I looked for answers and took it upon myself to change some of the obvious things. I replaced the EGR valve and the vacuum solenoid. Still wouldn't clear the code. Found a site (Link at the bottom) that said it is the EGR Pressure sensor that is the root of all these darn codes. It's located between the intake and the firewall. It has a connector and 2 rubber hose connections. $35 bucks later and what do you know...all fixed, now I can smog this thing. wish I would have found this info sooner. 2000 Taurus

I have a 1999 ford taurus and i've replaced my egr valve about 2 years ago. i reset the computer and it stayed off for about 3 weeks then the check engine light came back on. I went to have the code...

You may be able to remove the egr valve and spray brake cleaner, carb cleaner, or let it soak in something like seafoam for about 15 mins and the spray it with brake or carb cleaner. This works for me. Good Luck

Can't find the EGR sensor on my 2000 taurus. An auto store showed me a picture of where it is but it's not there. Where the freak is it?

depending on the size engine most are located under the plenum or near the left rear of it.. Of course the are 4 EGR items on this Ford. Valve, solenoid, Relay, & Manifold switch

Where is the EGR pressuure sensor at. Need to replace it.

Ford Taurus SES 3.0 L 6-cylinder
EGR valve are directly behind the intake manifold.


I listen from Taurus owners that just had the same problem (EGR insufficient and EGR excessive) and they replaced the EGR valve and the 4 oxygen sensors (if you do this use Ford sensors). This didn't fix the problem; then changed the Vacuum Regulator Solenoid and a tube mounted sensor part numbers F63Z-9J459-AA, and 4U7Z-9J460-AA. this fixed my check engine light and code issues, as well as it stopped idling so high that it caused the trans to jump into gear. It sometimes jumped so hard that he thought he had a broken motor mount.

Good luck (remember rated this).

Check your idle air valve, maybe your air filter needs to be changed. EGR valve may need to be checked at as well.

I have to by a new EGR valve for my 99 taurus with dohc. I need to know if it is easy for me to replace the part myself? Is it easy for me to get to on my engine?

Yes, EGR valves are usually in a very accessible place on the engine. You may have to move a couple of things out of the way, but it's one of the easiest things to replace on your car.

Egr valve insufficient flow detected

You probably pulled a code p0401, insufficient egr flow. Your DPFE sensor is more than likely at fault. There has been a lot of trouble with these sensors. Then reset CEL or disconnect battery for 5 minutes.
