P040D EGR temp sensor#1 Transit diesel
Had this code come up on our Transit last week. It had low power (not limp mode, just low) and it went through a tank of DEF in about 1000 miles. I had researched the code here and found that on the 6.4L, when they threw this code, the #1 EGR temp sensor was replaced per TSB. I checked with the parts dealer to see if they had one or when they could have one and since our warranty appointment was far enough away, I ordered one and left it there for the tech to install if they needed it.
Well, he got in there and checked the resistance and found it was at 1.789K Ohms, so they got the one I ordered and installed it and now Baby is back. I don't know what the range is supposed to be but 1.789K ohms was too much.
Anyway, I'm not concerned about it failing again because anything that runs through their shop gets a 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty. For us, that will be over 200,000 miles.
