That explains why Soundq has the only Focus I've seen the boxier style on. I wanted a pic of the '01 DPFE sensor in it's location, mainly. Thanks for the update, I'll fix my documentation.I think you may be having a hard time finding the 'new style' DPFE because that style was only used on the 2001's. As I understand it, the 01's were the only year to have the DPFE sensor that mounts directly to the EGR tube. All the others have what I think you are calling the 'old style' (firewall mount).
Anyhow, I have one of the failed 01 DPFE's in a drawer. The replacement Ford now sells is a modified firewall style. I can get you pics if you want them. Tell me what you need and I'll take 'em.
Go nuts, aXon (you many want to do the "Save As" because I'm not sure when I'll take down the images):I do need a photo of the new style DPFE though... If anyone has one, that'd be great. Of the 3 Focaljet members parked in my parking lot yesterday, not a one of them had the new style DPFE (and one was an '03 ZX3)
The early 2000 and some 2001 models have the DPFE mounted on the firewall.Great info so far, but I'm a little confused...do all new placement DPFE's from Ford mount the way that is shown, or does that only apply to the 01's? So, if I replace the DPFE on my 2000, the firewall mount isn't used anymore? Sorry about this, just confused a bit.
Well that sucks. What year Focus do you have? Oh wait you have a 2000. Sorry. I'm gonna see if I can use that one on my 2000. I'll let you know in a few days.I went to the dealer today and asked for the DPFE for my car...it looked just like the new style part posted above, but when I got home, I realized that the wiring harness connector was not even close to fitting. I went back to the dealer, and he pulled out another DPFE that he said was the older style, but it fit; the downside: it cost $80, versus the $40 for the new style
I got a p0402 code the other day, after my CEL light came on. I have 56K on the odometer. Anyone know if I am under waranty?They won't replace it under warranty until the CEL comes on and the OBD-II code specifically says "Insufficient EGR Flow" or something to that effect. That takes a LONG time from the time it starts to fail. That means you go a long time with a lot of crappy mileage and driveability before they'll replace it free. If you feel like waiting it out, be my guest. Not to rain on your parade, but you'll probably be well out of warranty by the time that happens.
