There was an extended warranty added by Ford to warranty the DPFE sensor (not valve). If I recall the warranty was to 80K miles. This applied to my 2000 Taurus Duratech, I don't know if it applied to the Vulcan or other model years.
The reason for the extended warranty was Ford was experiencing premature failures of many of these sensors. Mine hasn't failed yet. I am only at 55K miles, but I kept the notice Ford sent out in case it does fail before 80K.

I read your post and wondered how you "checked" your alternator?.
Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts and others will diagnose it free of charge.

The pressure sensor on the air conditioner receiver tank, rightin front of the motor next to the radiator) may be the problem. It is about a $25 part which can be replaced without losing coolant. You can do it using a pair of channel locks. To test, unplug the plug on top (clip holds it);take a jumper wire, which could be a cut-off extension cord or anything -there should be either 2 or 4 pins in the plug; take the wire and hold to one pin while touching the others one at a time with the other end and you should hear a clicking sound.That means the sensor is bad.
#2146 of 2996 No heat in my 98 Mercury Sable, 3.0
Dec 17, 2005 (8:06 pm)
I am baffled! My car's heater just wont work! Last year a friend gave me the money to replace a leaking and fauly heater core. The heat worked fine for the rest of that winter. I used my ac all summer, and now that it's cold, all I get out of the blower is cold air! The engine does heat up, though slower now (maybe the cold temps?)I replaced the thermostat, and the problem with no heat still exists! I was told I may have a blockage, does this mean a new heater core again? I live on a very small wage, and I have two infant grand children, so I cannot afford a mechanics bill, and so I try to do everything I can do, myself. It is getting rather cold, esp. for the babies, and it is the only car I have. I cannot begin to express that I know how to relace a heater core, so I pray that is not the problem. What else could it be? I have taken as good care of this car as my means will allow, I change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles, and the car seems to run good. The transmission is sluggish in cold weather, my father who is deceased said that fords are notorious for this. Is there anything else I can do or check for, before we must drive the remaider of winter without heat? (the worst is yet to come)I am at a loss, and really dont know what to do! I have been online for hours and days trying to find a solution to this problem,maybe this site will help. Any suggestions I will at least look into and or try, as money will allow. Thank you, Lorie
