Brand NEW DPFE Sensor

We are your DPFE Source!

DPFE's in stock for 99% of Ford vehicles from 96 - 06
(and a large percentage of earlier and later years!)

This sensor is a high quality aftermarket reproduction from one of the largest sensor manufacturers worldwide. Please use the Ebay compatibility guide to verify that the part fits your vehicle. You can also use our own application list below to double check - begin by determining your engine size, then look to see if your year and model is listed for that engine size. If you need help, just let us know and we will verify the application for you. If this is not the sensor you need, click here to view our other sensor (two DPFE's fit the majority of Ford applications after 1996).

Please take a moment to open the hood and visually verify that the sensor is correct for your application since mid year changes are sometimes not represented in the parts books.

Note: If you have trouble finding your vehicle on the list below, click here to search by vehicle year.

Following this application guide is some information discussing how the DPFE sensor works, why it fails, and how to replace it.

We have personally owned several Ford vehicles, including a Taurus, a Sable, and a Focus that the DPFE sensor failed on. Usually the failure starts with an almost imperceptible surge while cruising. Gradually it develops into an annoying surge and then the check engine light comes on eventually. Checking the code will usually reveal that you have a P0402. Other codes that may appear include P0401, P1400, and P1401. This problem was so bad for a few years that Ford actually put out a bulletin saying that if you had any of these codes and symptoms, don't even do any diagnosis, just replace the sensor!

Following is a quick explanation of how the DPFE sensor works:

When OBD2 was introduced, the EPA said that we now have to be able to know if the EGR valve quits working and turn the check engine light on if it does. Ford chose to do this by installing a slight restriction in the tube that brings exhaust to the EGR valve. Now we all know from science class that when there is flow through an orifice, there is a pressure drop across it. So Ford installed a pressure sensor across the orifice - when there is flow because the EGR valve opened, the pressure sensor detects the flow and informs the PCM that the system is working. That's why they call it a Differential Pressure Feedback EGR Sensor! Now, what do you think happens when you run hot exhaust gas into a little electronic sensor? It does not last very long - and that is why you are reading this!

Anybody can install it - no rocket science required! If you own a Ford with the DPFE it will probably fail - sooner or later - buy it for a spare! Compare at around $130 at many parts stores - for an aftermarket part!

We have found that this DPFE interchanges with the following part numbers. This list is not conclusive - there are others not listed:


Terms and Conditions:


We strive to provide "100%" customer satisfaction by offering the best combination of quality, price, speed, and service that you will find anywhere on or off Ebay. We value your patronage.

Domestic Shipping
We strive to ship all orders within 24 hours on business days (holiday periods excluded). If a delay occurs that is longer than would normally be considered commercially acceptable, we will attempt to contact you. Please be aware that time zones and scheduling may not allow same-day shipping in some cases. If a shipment is especially urgent, please contact us, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs - next day options may be available.. In addition to allowing at least 24 hours for shipment, please allow 2 - 3 days for Priority mail, 1 - 2 days for Express mail, and 1 - 5 days for UPS. Shipping costs are available to you through Ebay before bidding. If you do not find the shipping cost acceptable, please do not bid. We also think shipping cost are high - but unfortunately, cannot control them. Giving us a low rating because of shipping costs is unkind and does not benefit anyone.
As per Ebay policy, we will ship to your registered Paypal address only. Please make any needed address changes with Paypal before purchasing.

International Orders:
When placing an order from outside the USA, please use caution when selecting your shipping option. First class mail is an economy service and may take 30 days or more in some instances. First class mail is also not trackable. Priority mail International averages 7 - 10 days, and Express 3 - 5 days. These times will vary by country and can be longer if there are customs delays.
We are a legitimate business and will NOT falsify customs documents - please do not ask.

Each item in our Ebay store has its own return policy. Please take a moment to read it. With rare exceptions in case of a gross error on our part, shipping costs (either original or return) are NOT refundable. (Local auto parts stores will not pay your travel costs to return a part either.)
Shipping costs will be deducted from refunds on "free shipping" items.

We guarantee our parts to be as described by part number, picture, and verbiage. While we do our best, vehicle applications, however, simply cannot be guaranteed. In most cases, we do not generate application lists. It is the nature of the auto parts business that, in rare cases, a part will not be correct for a certain vehicle even though it "should" fit. This may occur because of errors on application lists, mid-year production changes, changes to the vehicle since it was built, the fact that a car was not built for the US market, etc. It is the buyer's final responsibility to visually verify that the part they are purchasing is correct for their vehicle. If a part does not fit your vehicle, this does not mean the part is "not as described."

We accept Paypal as well as all major credit card directly through Ebay. If you need other payment options, please contact us.

If you have a problem with an item purchased from us, please let us know before leaving feedback and we will work toward an equitable resolution. We really appreciate 5 star seller ratings in every category – if we can do something to improve toward meeting this goal, please let us know - we do value customer input. If you are prone to hostility in the event of a problem, please do not purchase here. Problems can be solved much more easily when civility is kept intact.

All of our products are covered by a warranty. Please see details in each individual listing for length and terms as well as the warranty statement on our website. Warranty covers parts only. We do not warranty labor unless specifically stated. In absolutely no case will there be any warranty for loss of use, towing, incidental or consequential damages, etc.
