you don't have a reset button but what you can do is chk for vacuum going to your egr. chek the "vacuum switching valve" VSV and see if you have an "EGR vacuum transducer" those are 2 very common problems with toyotas

I have a 94 4runner that is flashing a 71 code. can anyone tell me what is broken?


Code 71 is EGR or The EGR VSV. The ufo delie next to the egr. Might even be the temp sensor inside the egr. I would replace all three. Or even check your vacuum lines, they may be routed wrong!

Need to find location of egr sensor


A 2000 Camry with a 4cyl does not have a EGR sensor. The ECU uses the readings from the MAP and AF sensors to determine if the EGR is working.
You have a EGR VSV (vacuum switching valve) and a EGR modulator but no position sensor. Only the V6 has this.

O2 Sensors


Autozone oxygen sensors do not function properly in Toyota vehicles. Just had a Tacoma yesterday with the same issue. New sensors, runs poor, check engine light on. Toyota sensors fixed it right now.

Code on diagnostics p0401


Code on diagnostics p0401:

What is going on?
Exhaust Gas recirculation low flow detected means that: there is vacuum problem in the EGR system - between the combustion chamber, EGR valve (mechanical - blown up diaphragm or clogged airlets/hoses) , EGR Modulator Valve (mechanical - blown up diaphragm, dirty EG/air filter or clogged airlets/hoses) and Vacuum Switching Valve ((mechanical - blown up diaphragm or clogged airlets/hoses OR electrical - VSV not properly synchronizing with the ECM, for instance).

Effects?
This causes the combustion chamber temperature to increase and produce Oxides of Nitrate (NOx) that is out of an acceptable emission range. This triggers the Malfunction Light (check engine light) to stay on (after a couple of driving cycles)!
Solution: Focus on EGR airways (hoses...) and organs (EGR valve, EGR Modulator, VSV), clean, check or replace the defected one. VSV seems to be criticale as it plays electrical & mechanical function. Once the repair is done, Clear the P0401 code using an OBII scanner.
