P20E4-Exhaust-Gas-Temperature-Sensor-2/3-Correlation

Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor 2/3 Correlation

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) continuously monitors the Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor (EGTS) for proper circuit continuity and out of range high values. The EGTS is located in front of the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and/or in front of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). The EGTS detects exhaust gas temperature and converts it into a voltage and feeds back to the PCM with the voltage signal in order to control engine conditions to effectively reduce emissions. The PCM sets the P20E4 OBDII code when the Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor is out of factory specifications.

Cause:
Faulty Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor
Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor harness is open or shorted
Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
Exhaust leaks
Excessive particulate matter buildup on sensor

Symptoms:
Check engine light
