PO420 code has to do with the oxagen sensors, But allso can be triggered if there is a leak in the (Exuast) System some where, If the (Exuast) System is good ,Problem is with a oxagen sensor, If not replaced it can do damage to the cat (Converter) That is verry costly to have replaced,

Well, the po401 is saying is that the egr valve has restricted flow. After changing the egr and the tube, something else is causing the restriction. a more thorough diagnosis is recommended. The po420 code sounds like a possible catalyst failure or an o2 sensor failure.

If the code has cleared on its own then you need to disconnect the battery and re-connect it. This will clear the codes out of the memory. If you don't want to do this you can go to an auto parts strore and have them hook the little computer up to your car and they can clear out the code as well.
