I have a 1997 chevy lumina. i had 2 coded before, po420 and po401. i changed the egr valve, and now the po420 is gone. i just replaced the egr tube, cleared the codes, and now the po401 is back. car sounds...

Well, the po401 is saying is that the egr valve has restricted flow. After changing the egr and the tube, something else is causing the restriction. a more thorough diagnosis is recommended. The po420 code sounds like a possible catalyst failure or an o2 sensor failure.
