EVP Sensor Failure May Cause Drivability/Fuel Economy Issues on Ford Crown Victoria

The EGR valve position (EVP) sensor can fail on this vehicle. The EVP sensor measures the EGR valve position and transmits the date to the engine control computer. If it fails, drivability and fuel economy can suffer, the Check Engine Light will commonly illuminate.
