The DPFE is located near the EGR valve, it has 2 very thick silicone rubber hoses connected to it that come off the exhaust. It is rectangular and about 1/2 the size of a pack of smokes

How to replace it
A DPFE (delta pressure feedback EGR) sensor on a Ford is designed to sense the amount of EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) flow. The EGR is used to introduce burnt exhaust gases back into the engine through the intake manifold only at cruising speeds. This introduction of exhaust gases helps prevent pre-ignition by cooling the combustion temperatures, and it helps reduce emissions. A bad sensor will cause a stumble or rough engine at part throttle around 40 mph. And when the sensor begins to fail, the "Check engine" light will come on and show a code of "P0401," meaning that EGR flow is insufficient.

I believe the sensor that you are looking for is on the drivers side of the engine. If you have a 4.0 SOHC engine or a 5.0 engine the wiring will be the same. You will have a brown with a white tracer, a brown with a light green tracer, and a grey with a red tracer to the sensor. If you you have a 4.0 EI then you will have a Brown with a white tracer and 2 brown with a light green. If you follow the 2 tubes coming up from your exhaust manifold you should be able to locate your sensor it will have to tubes or hoses going to it from your exhaust manifold. Good luck.

SOURCE: rEPLACING mass air flow sensor
The mass flow sensor on the 1999 intrigue is along the intake tube right
after the air filter intake housing. Loosen the two clamps that hold the
MAF sensor between the Air filter box cover and air intake tube,
disconnect the wire leads at the MAF sensor connection and remove the
MAF. Note it's uncommon for the MAF sensor to go bad and 95% of the
time, cleaning it with MAF sensor with MAF cleaner will fix any problem
it may of had to trigger the DTC codes.
Start with trying to clean it first just by following the instruction on the MAF cleaner. This should save you time and money to get your Intrigue running 100% again soon.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Usually mounted on driver side,on a bracket over exhaust manifold or on a bracket on intake manifold. One of the 2 hoses that attach to it goes directly to egr valve. If you still cant locate it follow hose from egr valve it ends at sensor.
