You don't try anything

The Codes you get are sensors reporting
an out of range condition.
That means you find out why,not change them

The 300 is a misfire issue

I suggest as much as i like to see you
do all your own work,that you go to a repair
shop, that know the technolgy ,and you will not
have any of the test equip needed to solve much
of anything on todays vehicles

00 Camry 2.2 egr problem po 401 low flow new egr valve new solenoid new transducer new map clean passages. I don't know what else to do

Here is an overview for the code as it relates to Toyota cars.
I would go back and make sure the tubes and pipes are clear.
In most cases, the passage is plugged up, or the sensor does not "see" the flow.

Possible causes
- EGR passage clogged
- Faulty EGR Vacuum Modulator Valve
- Faulty EGR Valve
- Faulty EGR solenoid valve
- EGR solenoid valve harness is open or shorted
- EGR solenoid valve circuit poor electrical connection
- Dead (Weak) battery
- Faulty EGR temperature sensor and circuit
- Exhaust gas leaks

Normally a shop would use a scanner to watch the operation of the EGR valve and sensor.
Code 401 means the sensor is telling the computer the flow is not enough. So the problem could be the sensor rather than the EGR valve. And yes one of the ports could be blocked too.

Clean the EGR valve seat. The EGR may have become stuck. A good way to check for vacuum leaks is to use smoke near every intake vacuun hose . And near the intake manifold. The valve will **** in the smoke. If you clean the EGR valve and it still misses. Replace it. The EGR can cause random misfire.

Every now and then the car wants to stall but it does not

You have verified the EGR valve will operate when vacuum is applied so the valve and chambers are good..correct? If thats the case, then
your issue here is the VSV (vaccum switching vavle), these intermittently get stuck. Follow the vaccum lines down behund the intake, you will find the vsv located on the back side of the block just above where the drive axle mounts to the block.
Replace this VSV and the modulator valve at the same time, they tend to fail togather.
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya
