If you've got the tube leading from the header to the EGR valve, then if it
had the DPS sensor, it would have 2 hoses coming off the tube from the
header to the EGR valve that ran to it... small block about 1/4" thick, 3:
long and 1" wide.
If it doesn't have the sensor, with the valve you describe, it nmay infer
EGR flow by idle speed reduction when the EGR is given vacuum.  If it
doesn't see a drop in RPM, it flags the flow low codes.

It could be 2 things.
1 fuel slosh. You's feel this at 1/2 to 3/4 of a tank of gas, and it's just
the gas moving around in the tank.

2 An automatic transmition. It could be dropping out of gear durring rapid
deceleration, and as soon as the truck is stopped going back into first.

Also remember that the 2002 4-door Explorer is 100% brand new.  New front
suspension, new frame, near rear suspension, etc.

I had something like the following happen to a friend of mine. He had a
tonneau cover on. The mechanic found the problem fairly quickly. Turns out
there was a cantaloupe rolling around back there.

David thanks

I took a better look at my header tube and I found 2 thin tubes coming off
of it which I traced back to the block you described (they were hidden under
the intake).  After looking carefully I found that one hose had split at
both ends.  Replaced it and now the code is cleared.  Weird Ford could not
find this problem.

Thanks again
