    for p0402,
    Causes:
    A code P0402 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
    The DPFE (differential pressure) sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
    There is a blockage in the EGR (most likely carbon buildup)
    The EGR valve is faulty
    The EGR valve may not be opening due to a lack of vaccuum
    Possible Solutions:
    With a P0402, it is common for people to replace the EGR valve, only to have the problem return. The most likely solution is to replace the DPFE sensor.
    Check the voltage at the DPFE sensor both at idle and when the EGR is open
    Replace the DPFE sensor
