        Very good replacement, just be careful when fiddling with it, don't break the brittle plastic hoses.

              • Q:

                I have a 1995 Ford Explorer, sometimes i get a really sluggish, stumbling idle right at start up. I tested the EGR solenoid by pulling off the little hose that comes from the top of the EGR valve to the EGR solenoid and found out that its sucking air, I'm sure that it shouldn't be sucking air(solenoid should be closed) at idle, but what I do know is that the EGR DPFE sensor has a common incidence of failure on this truck, as well as the MAF sensor(which I have already cleaned and did improve the idle quality). I replaced fuel filter last year (2011). I have also replaced the spark plugs (but not wires)
                I am narrowing it down to the EGR solenoid or the DPFE sensor(all sensors are factory)

                thanks in advanced

                  A:

                  The EGR solenoid and or even the DPFE sensor may be the problem on your Ford Explorer. However, I 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.

                  The EGR control solenoid should be located on the intake manifold. For further assistance, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our representatives would be more than happy to assist you.

                I have a 1996 F150. The a/c blows ice cold but recently when pulling a hill the air changes from blowing out of the vents to the defrost vents then to the floor then back to the dash whenever the truck is level again.....any suggestions? I have been told vacuum control sensor but I am not finding this part. Is there another name for this part?

              • Q:

                Hi I have a 1995 Ford F-150 with the 5.0L and it is running really sluggish when giving it throttle but when I let off of the throttle it idles just fine and it is backfiring. I took it to the good year service center and they drove it all day yesterday and said it was running fine the whole time. I get the truck back and I am still haveing the same problem. I googled it and came up with alot of answers but one answer that was given over and over was the Throttle position sensor and the EGR valve. Any advice would help. I am at a loss. Thanks

                  Yes, it sounds like the Throttle position sensor and the EGR valve should be the possible cause of the problem on your Ford F-150.

                  Same situation with my 93 F150, Ended up replacing plugs, plug wires, rotor button and cap. Found one plug wire internally corroded and one had touched exhaust manifold. Also changed the fuel pressure regulator as the pressure was always low. Now running like it should.

                  A:

                  The purpose of the EGR is to allow a certain amount of exhaust to return and be mixed with the incoming fuel into the cylinders at cruising speed. This helps to cool the cylinders, allowing for a higher degree of ignition advance to burn more of the fuel. This makes the engine more efficient. If the EGR is not used, the ignition timing would have to be retarded somewhat so that detonation would not occur.

                  It appears to come from the main vaccum port on the intake manifold. Several other vaccum lines also connect at the same port.
