SOURCE: EGR VALVE ON 96 FORD PROBE SE
If it's a 2.0L, 5 speed (1994-7) there are two DPFE solenoids (both w/ 3 vacuum ports) near the oil filter, which control the EGR valve. They are discontinued and impossible to find except on junked cars. (FORD #'s K5T44093-4)
I have to junk my 1996 Probe if I don't find them - Missouri emissions.

The P0403 code represents a problem with the Exhaust Gas Recirculation Solenoid or circuit.Below is the chart that explains and directs us to where the problem may exist.
Since there are a number of components or wires that can be at fault for this code,I feel it is not going to be something that we should attempt to diagnose via long distance. You may wish to check the basic wiring and vacuum supply to the solenoid, but if you find that the ECM is at fault, you will want to have this type of problem backed up by a good part and labor warranty.
Most solenoids need about 20 ohms or slightly higher resistance on the primary winding circuits to function correctly.

You are right. You need the vent valve not the purge valve. The vent valve is a dealer item. Also this is a common problem and GM has released a bulletin on this that involves moving the location of the valve and running some new lines. It comes as a kit from GM, and it costs about a 100 bucks.
