I HAVE SEEN RARE CASES OF THAT USUALLY ON V-6 F-150'S, IF ITS BAD YOU SHOULD HAVE A
P0401 OR P0402 EGR INSSUFF FLOW OR EGR EXCESSIVE FLOW, THERES ALSO A CODE FOR
EGR CIRCUIT FAILURE MAYBE P0405 DONT REMEMBER, IF YOU HAVE A AUTOZONE THEY SOULD
CHECK CODES FOR FREE.

Hey guess what i fixed my damn car. It was something so stupid very very stupid i oughta kick my own ass. Anyways i was doing somem test for my DPFE sensor to see if it was good or bad. Well as i was doing that when i put my arm right over the egr valve i felt suction to my forearm. Yeah i had a leak from the egr valve gasket. So i took it off sealed it up and broke the screw on it because it was srtipped the circle nut on the other side. I used a regular nut and washer and sealed it tight. Now my car is running like new again with more power im freaking loving it. Thanks guys for all your help i greatly appreciate it.
