you might need a stethiscope to hear where this is coming from could be a idler or maybe the tensioner or maybe the alternator .. none of these would bother power

CHECK THE PCV VALVE HOSE THAT CONNECTS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE THROTTLE BODY, THESE HOSES ARE KNOWN TO DETERIORATE AND ALLOW UNMETERED AIR TO ENTER THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER, WHEN THIS OCCURS THE OXYGEN SENSOR'S SIGNAL TELL THE PCM TO INCREASE THE PULSE WIDTH OF THE INJECTORS CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO ALMOST STALL.

Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on ...you'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

Barring any vacuum leaks, P0401 is indicative of a bad EGR valve. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.
