I found that out the hard way (told a friend to go there)

2 weeks later he called me said autozone did jack.. I hooked my diablosport handheld up to his exploder, found a cmdtc p0401 - he brought it into ford and had his dpfe sensor replaced for free under recall..

Last one I had on my car was a stuck open EGR valve. I had to replace the whole system and now that one is starting to act up every so often...
