P1400 DPFE Sensor Circuit Low Input

for instance if the EGR valves orifice tube assy is carboned up, it could cause the DPFE to put out a corrupt PID to the computer.

If any of the vacuum hoses to the DPFE sensor are compromised, leaking vacuum, or clogged up, that could mess with the PID it sends to the computer.

So there are a number of other things that can cause the DPFE sensor to output what ever signal it sends to the computer, so we have to take All of that into consideration when doing a trouble shoot.

The EGR system is a mature & rather rugged system, so In most cases, look for something simple, like a bad rubber vacuum line or loose fitting, or carbon build up in the EGR orifice tube assy, or maybe a leaky EGR or EVR diaphragm or vacuum line.

Seeing as how the EVR has been replaced I suppose it's kinda low on your suspect list, but with Murpheys Law being what it is, I wouldn't take it off the list yet!!!!

Get a vacuum tester & check the EGR & EVR diaphragms to make sure they're holding vacuum & that the interconnecting vacuum line is holding vacuum.

Hope helps.

I have a 2006 Saab 97x 4.2i, check engine light is on the the codes that came up are p0014, and p1400. Can anyone tell me the problems

Please follow the link for info you requested on P0014

P1400 Saab
When you check engine light came on code P1400 the reason should be Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light). However Saab manufacturer may have a different definition for the P1400 OBD-II Diagnostic Powertrain (P) Trouble Code. So you should chech it on our car models.
Saab P1400 Possible Solution : The crankshaft sensor signals the fuel injection computer or the ignition control when the cylinders are firing. This causes the ignition coil to provide a spark and the injector to inject fuel into each cylinder at the right time.If either sensor isn't working correctly, the car will run rough and the engine will be less efficient. In later car models, the car's computer can usually keep the vehicle running, but the engine warning light on the dashboard goes on to warn the driver.

What does a code p1400 mean on a Mitsubishi longer sport 200 mean

Here's a link to your code P1400. p1400 is your manifold differential sensor(MDP) and has nothing to do with your cat.

There is a small map sensor (MDP) that sits directly on top of your intake manifold. The sensor doesnt' seem to effect the car in any REAL way. I drove for 2 years with that code with no problems. I've just recently picked a used one from a guy who did a 6 bolt swap and the code is now gone. I didn't notice any difference by changing it though.

I think I paid 30 dollars shipped or something. New I believe they go for approximately 95 dollars US. Definately worth finding a used one if you can.

I have 1999 ford ranger 3.0 flex fuel. 109,000 miles. i get a code reading of p1400. is that a sensor problem or some kind of valve. and can you give a cost for repair estimate. thanks ...

The code P1400 reads "DPFE Sensor Voltage Low" (Ford, Mazda). Often it's caused by a bad DPFE sensor or clogged EGR passages. DPFE stands for (Differential Pressure Feedback EGRI) I would clean the EGR valve which cost nothing. If that does not cure the problem, you may need to replace the DPFE sensor, which does cost, and it may not fix the problem. If you want to be sure you replace the correct part, then visit your local Ford dealer.

Exhaust gas recirculation flow insufficient detected.
Maybe you got a bad DPFE sensor, or the pintel inside the egr valve is not opening all the way causing the insufficient flow.

Check engine light on a 1997 nissan altima

gadiame: The code P1400 is for the EGR valve and Evap canister purge control solenoid valve circuit.
An improper voltage signal is being sent to the ECM through the solenoid valve.
As far as whether the engine using a timing belt or gear? You mean chain? This engine uses a timing chain.
If I can answer any other questions, write me.
