Im not sure if anyone can tell my issue from these data readings but its better then nothing. So far i first started with DTC codes P0401,P0171,P0174 replaced the DPFE cleared code but it came back so i returned the DPFE and got a new EGR cleared code and back again. It could be that both the DPFE and egr were bad but i have not replaced it again yet(DPFE very common issue on rangers im told). Then my ranger started to stall randomly and i found in the end the issue was a bad PCM relay. After replacing it i only had a P0402 DTC and after clearing that i got the P0401 DTC again. My next step is checking DPFE volts somehow not sure yet, checking for leaks, running seafoam and if all fail taking apart and cleaning everything... trying to avoid that if possible. If anyone has helpful tips please let me know.

hey i have some of the similar problems going. i recently took apart the egr system and cleaned the valve, took the throttle body off and it was completely nasty with buildup, cleaned that. my truck is randomly stalling still and i now have a dpfe code and went from p0401 to p0402. have you made any progress? i would suggest removing the throttle body and cleaning it.
