P0401 Help

I just put studs and an EGR delete on a 06 PSD. The truck is setting a CEL with a 401 EGR code now. This is a company work truck, and the customer is not interested in a performance programmer, is there any other way to eliminate the code?? Thanks!

I cleaned my MAF with throttle body cleaner and it went away.

Sounds like you need custom tunes to delete that code then. I believe that code is EGR Flow insufficient. Call vivian and get a tow tune since its a work truck.

I had the same issue, even running a tune. The person that tuned my truck did not want to eliminate the code for safety reasons. I plugged the EGR back in and tie wrapped it to the engine. The code went away after that. Still have the block off plate installed, just the now the EGR valve is sitting on the block.

Yeah, he said that if he disabled the alerts it would cause me to not get other important engine alerts. I argued but as you see I ended up plugging the EGR back in.

my truck sets a P0401 if it's 60 or warmer outside. my valve is still in place and plugged in

seems like all of these trucks will set it under different conditions, there's no real way to get rid of it other than a tune. different calibrations do different things
