Change your spark plugs and wires, replace your distributor cap and rotor, have a mechanic set the timing correctly by moving the distributor and using a timing light gun. You did not tell me the year so look on the website for the exact specs to set your timing correctly, It will tell you how many degrees to set timing

I have seen this happen and found it to be a silly thing. The cam sensor was on upside down. Yes I know Impossible you say but it was on upside down. It drasticly retarded the ignition timing and caused poor drivability. Check it out You may like what you find.

I hope this helps.

    it sounds like you may have a bent engine valve, if the cam belt was wrong then u bent a valve, do a compression test of the engine cylinders and let me know what you find, bet u have at least one a dead cylinder.

    sounds like a Bent valve or a timing belt that was installed wrong

    get a shop manual and recheck the valve timing

    the timing and the compression are the most common causes here.

You don't give the year built, but back when ECM where first introduced it was known that the vehicle would run rough for await till the ECM had time to learn so of speak, by driving on the road. We had to drive down the road a few miles first to get running right on it's own.

Ford e150 codes: p0401, p1401 and p0174. read the more details to see what the symptoms are.

Stop, DO NOT replace expensive parts or O2 sensor! Ford Explorer codes p0174 , p0401 , rough idle and check engine light on. First thoroughly check all of the hoses and elbows connected to the intake and EGR (vacuum system) for splits, cracks, holes or tears, this could quickly cause these codes and fixes for less than $10. Check all connectors and the EGR valve sensor it could have a crack as well, inspect thoroughly because a split sensor could appear attached to the vacuum hoses but hoses could just be sitting there not actually attached due to a split or crack. This was my problem replaced the EGR valve sensor and the two little vacuum hoses attached to them for $50-60 with in stock parts at the local parts store. Took less than 10 minutes to replace and is easily accessible, the check engine light turned off immediately without having to reset the codes by disconnecting the battery, idle became normal and fuel efficiency better. If you have THOROUGHLY inspected every hose, connector and elbow and found no issues, clean the MAF with electrical contact cleaner ( let dry) and clean the EGR with carbon cleaner. A dirty MAF or EGR could also cause these codes to pop up. If this still doesn't work, then consider replacing the EGR, if that isn't it then try the O2 sensor. Good luck!

Check and see if the EGR valve is leaking, to check this spray water on it at idle, if the water steams off the valve is leaking and is the source of your problem, also are you sure you hooked the new DPFE sensor up right? re-check it..
