EGRTA Sensor Replacement

Can anyone tell me which sensor is the EGRTA sensor? Is this a dealer item only and are there any secrets to repacing it?

My truck lost all power yesterday. It actually started out intermittenly about a week ago (meaning it would go in and out while driving). The EGT gauge would read all over the place and never seemed to read right and I am now throwing the P040D code constantly.

After doing some searches I am pretty confident that it is the EGRTA sensor and was hoping to get some info from those who may have had to change it.

I posted this in the Tuner forum because I am currently running the Spartan 210 tune. I am not sure if that is pertinant to this issue but thought I better post it in case someone else has had this issue and was caused by something else.

mick, thanks for the follow up as well. You guys ever notice that when you finally get a handle on things it is Sunday and you now have to wait for Monday. The wait is going to kill me.

I hope you all have a good Mother's Day and thanks again.

Can you guys confirm that i have the right sensor? I just picked up part# 8C3Z-12B591-D from the dealer and the connecot type is round where the origial one is rectangular and the actual sensor portion the sits in the pipe is about 1/2 inch longer that the original. Does this sound right? And do i need to pull the pins out of the old connecter and insert in the new connector? Or did they package the wrong part in the wrong bag?

I think the part you bought is a DPF EGT Sensor. The part number you listed is
for a DPF EGT Sensor.

So what part number am i looking for? I believe i need the EGRTA sensor. I am throwing the P040D code, have absolutely no power and the temp on the DD is not reading correctly. Either the gauge is all over the place or it reads about 200 when driving.

Just got off the phone with Ford and they said that the prope part number for the one listed in the diagram that mick attached was 8C3Z-12B591-B not (-D). I am totally confused not on which part I need.

I would say that you need the one that ends in "B" ... the EGRTA Sensor
and not the DPF EGT Sensor that ends in "D". This is only based on
what I have read though, as I have no actual experiance with messing with
these things ...
