EGR issues

1996 5.0 with an EGR low flow issue. Local CA Star Certified garage says the cause of this error with Fords is very often the DPFE sensor. Where is this located? I have a factory repair manual which shows how it looks in position, but not exactly where it is.

DPFE is held on to a bracket that is bolted to back passenger side of intake. Just follow the vacuum hose from EGR to DPFE

Thanks for helping me to better understand the DPFE puzzle! Further inquiry shows the hoses from the DPFE go to the EGR pipe going into the EGR valve. They are actually rubber pressure hoses. Knowing the approximate location of the DPFE valve is helpful. My electronic copy of the shop manual is missing the 5.0 EGR system overall drawing. Hard to get to this stuff!
