Jason, thanks for the info. Does your CD have any thing for DFPS?
I am also considering DFPS, since the car stalls when I apply vacum in idle, I think EGR is OK.
I read many postings in archive, many people ended up replacing DFPS, some was talking about a recall for 2000+ tauruses for DFPS, there was no such recall I could find...
Some also talks about cleaning, how do I clean this thing...?
The extended coverage for certain 2000 and 2001 Fords covers replacement of the dpfe sensor for an additional 24 months or 24k miles whichever comes first. You can call the local Ford dealer and see if your car is covered under program number 02M01. I got my letter in January of 2003 I think thats when they started the program. If you need some proof you could always google it or maybe try a search over at Flatrate Tech Forums Every time I have seen the P0402 Excessive EGR flow code it has been the dpfe. Oh yeah if you register at myford you can see if you are eligble also.Originally posted by FullDuplex@May 9 2004, 12:03 PM
Is there any thing out here in the Internet to back this one up. I like to go to dealer armed in case if they start bsing me.
Like any TBS, or anything...
