    If you are getting a p401 code- egr insufficient flow- then this is probably the culprit. The factory sensor is made of aluminum and corodes badly. I have changed one on my 98 taurus and my 98 e350 van. Both were an easy fix and problem solved.

    Do not use on V8 SHO

    The SHO V8 gives off too much heat where sensor mounts. The plastic sensor melted and vode returned, I have to get aluminium sensor from Ford for my application.

    Check this before replacing EGR valve

        Comments about BWD EGR Position Sensor:

        If your vehicle is running rough and throwing a code for the EGR valve you may want to try this part before replacing the EGR valve.

        This installs in minutes and from what I've read this EGR position sensor fails more frequently than the actual EGR valve. Installation on my Mazda Tribute consisted of plugging in one electrical connector and slipping on two vacuum lines. All told it was less than 5 minute job from opening the hood to completing the replacement.

          Comments about BWD EGR Position Sensor:

          I went and got this part after seeing a P0401 Code on my truck PCM-EGR Insufficient Flow Detected. I hope to get better gas mileage on the road. I took my old one to the store to compare it to the new aftermarket one, the one I took off was factory and there was corrosion on the one by the way, I can say it was time to be replaced. The old one sure was making my truck not ride smoothly.This plastic design is slightly different than the oem metal sensor it replaced. I correctly hooked the hoses back the way that they suppose to go, I did not hook'em wrong. My truck sure was hesitating, stumbling, poor low speed acceleration 1st thru 3rd gear when I was on the road. It was easy and simple to change it out on the truck, I pray that the hesitation is gone when i get on the road. The code is not present anymore on my diagnostic device. Im glad I ordered online and saved good, 35% off one time code use per household. Thank You AAP for good discount codes. You the best.The factory sensor is made of aluminum and corodes badly

            I got a check engine code P-401 for the egr system but after doing some research I found it was this part that was bad. The best thing is that I got better fuel mileage after replacing it.

                Comments about BWD EGR Position Sensor:

                On my 2000 Sable, this fixed the P1401 code. According to internet commentors, these fail all the time, so the P1401 code means just replace this sensor. I checked with a local Ford/Mazda tech friend and he agreed.
                This plastic design is slightly different than the oem metal sensor it replaced. The difference meant that the vacuum lines wouldn't quite reach, so I suggest that when replacing the dpfe, you take the old sensor to the store with you along with the rubber vacuum lines, and buy new lines that are a couple inches longer. By taking the old ones in, you will be more likely to get the proper diameter vacuum lines. On mine there was a clear difference in line diameters on the hose and the sensor tubes, so it was easy to get them right. If in doubt, note which line goes to which tube. You may want to mark one of the metal lines with tape or a marker. On mine, the fat tube is labeled "HI" and the skinny one is labeled "REF" and was labeled on both the old and new sensors. This is a fairly easy DIY job, though I did break the lock tab on the electrical connector, but simply secured it with a zip tie.

                    Comments about BWD EGR Position Sensor:

                    When I bought the car (1999 Ford SVT 2.5L) my engine threw out a P1401 Engine Code - DPFE Sensor. After replacing plugs and wires making the car more responsive, the code persisted, and a tiny hesitation was still noticeable during low-speed acceleration in 1st thru 3rd gear.

                    I installed this new sensor with the help of only a 5/16" socket on an extension. The code disappeared and the hesitation was completely gone.

                    There are 2 vacuum hoses attached to the sensor. Make sure the correct hoses are attached to the correct barbs on the sensor. The larger hose goes on the "HI" barb marked on the sensor.

                    Good product! -m.

                                    Sorry for any confusion caused. The EGR sensor (BWD EGR Position Sensor - Part No. EGR155) has to be pulled with hands. If it is stuck on the tubes pretty tightly you need both hands to pull the sensor out of that rubber hose. Hold steady the 2 metal pipes (you don't want to break those pipes) and one twisting or pulling out the sensor.

                                    If the raw unburned gas is passing through the exhaust system including your catalytic converter and coming out of the tail pipe. It makes the EGR Pressure Feedback Sensor to melt. So raw gas is leaving from your cylinders. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                                  I purchased this sensor and it was the wrong part that I needed.
                                  I actually need the EGR vacuum solenoid that is giving me trouble.
                                  Question is if I can return original part bought and in return purchase the part I need without any hassels.
                                  Employee stated that I could not return part once I bought it.
                                  I appreciate an answer from you.
                                  Thank you.............
