2001_Ford_Explorer_Sport_Trac Wiki

This 2001 Ford V6~4.0L~SOHC is factory fitted with the ExhaustGasRecirc\EGR system pictured below.

The ExhaustGasRecircValve, left side of IntakeManifold throat, is Vacuum actuated by the EGRSolenoid.

The EGRSolenoid, mounted near EGRValve, is a 12v VacRelay actuated by the PowerControlModul\PCM.

The DiffPresFlowElement allows calculation of Flow from ExhaustManifold to EGRValve to IntakeManifold.

The DPFElement, mounted on 2 RiserHoses+Tubes, sends DiffPressure to the PCM for calculating Flow.
