The code 401 is for the EGR system meaning that the passages inside the INTAKE MANIFOLD are plugged up with carbon or the EGR valve is faulty, Idle the car, use a vacuum pump to open the EGR valve if the engine does not stumble and nearly 'DIE" then the EGR passages are plugged up or the EGR valve wont hold vacuum Do not just assume the EGR valve is bad before you test first and if it is ONLY ONLY ONLY buy it at the dealer even if aftermarket ones are free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please rate this a fixya if you feel the advice is helpful Thanks Randy.

Normally a shop would use a scanner to watch the operation of the EGR valve and sensor.
Code 401 means the sensor is telling the computer the flow is not enough. So the problem could be the sensor rather than the EGR valve. And yes one of the ports could be blocked too.

P420 is EGR system malfunction P1406 is EGR pintle position problem be sure and check power and ground before condemning the valve and the P401 is catalyst code i would fix EGR code first clear monitors and run a drive cycle to see if the cat code returned although the egr and catalyst are separate systems an EGR that isn't functioning may cause the emissions levels to be too high for a marginal converter to diffuse resulting in the cat efficiency code

It is very possiable that you may be getting a false code that will reocure till egr problems are repaired. The ecu may be trying to compensate for egr problems causing it to send the 607 code
