    Anyone know where the exhause pressure sensor is located on a 6.0 PSD. Got a code for sensor failing. Truck runs fine otherwise. Also if anyone might have diag specs for this sensor it would be much appriciated. The local Ford dealer says they cannot allow me to speak to their technicians, I guess I understand that but it's quite rediculous to me. I have other heavy equip. tech call me from time to time (and vice-versa) and have never not told them everything I know about the subject, guess it is a different world in auto, techs refusing to help other techs.

    Well thanks in advance.
    Tom

    I google searched this and I found the EBP sensor lies at the front right corner near the secondary fuel filter. This is for a 6.0 or Check the driver's side ehxaust manifold near the front of the truck.

    Thanks Dav. I tried to search on Yahoo but every time I try those search engines I get everything but what I am searching for. I must use to wrong keywords or something. I really would like to find the ohm specs or voltage pinouts to the ecm but seems as if Ford/international keep them in their belt. I do appriciate that information. I thought it was likely the sensor mounted to the turbo glad I didnt just guess. I'll probably get the sensor and change it hopeing it would clear the code but I'd feel alot better if I knew it was bad if you know what I mean. Its a company truck and its company money but I dont like to change a part and then not fix the problem, I got an image to uphold. Dont wanna be called the comeback kid, we already got one of those.

    On my 2005, it is directly behind the smaller filter housing(secondary) fuel filter. After dinner, I'll take a pic and post it. It is in the cast aluminum tube under the filters.

    Disregard this post, this is the wrong one. It is located at the end of a tube running from the drivers side front exhaust port up under the brake master cylinder reservoir. Sorry for the confusion!

    What year is it POS? I think the ebp sensor is covered under a recall on the 04 and 05 models? Look up recall 05e15.

    2004/05 Emissions and EBP Sensor Recall 05E15:
    Certain 2004 and 2005 trucks are being recalled for computer reprogramming and replacment of the Exhaust BackPressure sensor and, in some cases, the EBP sensor connector. Econolines built between 12-9-03 through 5-28-04, and SuperDuties and Excursions built between 12-1-03 through 5-31-04 will have the EBP sensor connector replaced. SuperDuties and Excursions built between 9-29-03 through 11-30-03, or between 6-1-04 through 1-18-05, and Econolines built from 6-1-04 through 3-3-05 do not have the connector replaced. All of the above trucks will be reprogrammed to the latest calibration level. Since many trucks ahave already had the EBP sensor replaced with the current level part, the sensor part number should be inspected. If the part number on the sensor is 1850353 over a number starting with "C1", the sensor does not need to be replaced. Any other numbers, or unreadable numbers, will be replaced.

    2003-05 Various Running Problems, Check Engine Light; New EBP Sensor:
    Trucks built before 1-17-05 that exhibit buck/jerk, hesitation, lack of power, stalling, stumble, black smoke, surging, rolling idle, changes in engine sound at idle or when driving at a steady speed, or with the trouble codes P2263 or P0299, may have an exhaust backpressure sensor signal that is incorrect or erratic. A revised EBP sensor is available if this is found to be the case. Part number 4C3Z-9J460-A. Broadcast Message 3815.
    Normal EBP signal reading should reflect atmospheric pressure with the key on/ engine off. Typically, this is 14.7 PSI/0.88-0.9 volts at sea level, decreasing one PSI/0.10 volt for every 2000 feet of elevation. It should be within 0.5 PSI of BARO and MAP sensor pressure signals

    Here is a little info.
