Question about Chrysler Town & Country
the purge valve i believe is located near your gas tank unless theyve moved it i should look like a little canister cyclinder shaped. both codes could be set off by the same problem. try replacing the valve.

The lean running codes are related to the p-1000 code...
Running lean on bank 1 and bank 2 means your oxygen sensors sense too much oxygen in your exhaust flow. This means either your engine is getting unmetered air (air that the engine does not know is coming in, therefore does not send fuel to compensate for...) (air that your mass air flow sensor does not see). You could have either a bad mass air flow (MAF) sensor (in the intake piping after the filter; this sensor tells your engine how much air it's taking in, so it can send the right amount of fuel through the injectors to properly burn with the air available with as little emissions as possible), or you could also have a cracked/broken intake piping after this sensor which lets air in the intake that the sensor does not measure... A large vacuum leak could also let unmetered air in the engine.
Or... Another possibility here would be low fuel pressure (bad fuel pump, bad fuel pressure regulator, fuel leak), as not enough fuel for the air would also cause the same lean condition.
It could be that some oxygen sensors are bad...
These conditions are hard to pinpoint exactly unless you have a scanner that can read sensor data (MAF Flow, fuel pressure, oxygen sensor values)...
The first thing I'd do would be to check for cracks or damage in the intake piping... If there is none, then it might be a low fuel pressure issue, or sensor problems...

Code P1401 Is (DPFE Curcuit High Input )Its Part Of The EGR System It Tells The EGR Valve What To Do The DPFE Stands For (Delta Pressure Feedback EGR Sensor) It Messures Pressure In The EGR System And Tell The ECM Weither To Open Or Close The EGR Valve

SOURCE: check engine code P1494???
Definition of error code
Evap leak detection pump pressure switch condition
ECM detected the leak detection pump switch did change after solenoid was energized
1.-Leak detection pump defective
2.-Open or shorted circuit condition
3. Solenoid defective

For more information see if you can get a copy of this Technical Service Bulletin from your local Mitsubishi dealer.
DATE: September, 1998
MODEL: 1996-97 Eclipse 2.0L Non-Turbo
Evaporative Emission Control Leak Detection System Diagnosis
This bulletin describes the operation of the evaporative emission control leak detection system and how to diagnose diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) relevant to this system (DTCs 183, 184, 187, 160, and 161).
I think the whine you hear while turning the steering wheel is a P/S system that's low on fluid or a P/S pump starting to go bad.
The rattle under the dash could be anything from loose change to a loose component.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
