I would go to a parts store and ask for the to take a test to it(it is free) schucks does it. Or get it a diagnostics done on it but it would be a good idea.
I was told by more then one mechanic sensors go out, Yes even the brand new ones because what made you replace it the first time may be doing it again to the one you just did.

the rear one is a single sensor and is located in the top of the rear differential , unplug it and take the retaining bolt out and it pops straight up out of the differential. the front has 1 for each wheel,and is located on the backside of the wheel hub. take the tire off and look on back side of hub it should be the only sensor thare and is anchored with one bolt then just fallow the wire to its disconnect point. this vehicle is known to have problems with the rear sensor so i would replace it first and see if this fixes the problem

Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator is going bad...this will cause the fuel pressure to be high and create a flooding condition. Which in turn will gas wash the motor and contaminate the O2 sensor with excessive fuel. Check fuel pressure with a gauge at the valve you are using to relieve pressure. You can find pressure specs on-line for that particular vechicle. If pressure is high...replace regulator, O2, change oil and reset computer by disconnecting battery for ten minutes...

The DPFE sensor is a very common failure on all Ford models. Just have the sensor replaced. Or do it yourself. It is very easy to change you can do it in 10 minutes.

you probably have blocked passages in the intake manifold. remove the egr and check the port for a clog. you can scrape most of the carbon out with a pick or screw driver and then use some spray carbon cleaner in there. also check the metal exhaust line to the egr
