SOURCE: I got the code p0400 1.
first take the egr valve off then get some carb cleaner spray it into the egr valve ports let sit 30-60min then take a small flat head clean any carbon left over in it. then check the vaccume lines to it they to might be plugged you can take a small wire or push pin and stick it in the ports to unplug it.

SOURCE: Truble code p0400
the passage that causes this low flow is in the intake, it gets full of carbon and gunk, try running a wire through it, also make sure the EGR passes a functional test.

SOURCE: no vacuum to egr valve
there is an EGR vacuum solenoid somwhere that controls on/off vacuum to actuate the valve. i am not to sure of the location, but follow the vacuum line back from the egr until you find a device that looks like an electrical check valve for vacuum. that is a possibilty. but then again i am a ford,chrysler guy and am just giving you an answer based on my understanding of the functuality of a vacuum egr system

There is a VSV (vacuum switching valve) , usually mounted on the back side of engine block, under the intake manifold, as well as the map sensor, that can also cause that code if one or the other is faulty. It takes some pretty detailed troubleshooting to confirm this in some cases, so if that's not in your line of work, you may have to have it properly diagnosed, or take a 50/50 shot at which one first.
