P0401 - Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Insufficient Detected

Anybody have experience with this code? I've thrown it 4 times in the past couple of days and a few times last summer. It also throws a P1000, but that would be expected due to a failure on emissions testing.

So, I'm thinking that maybe soot has clogged the return to the air intake? Anybody have some input?

The P1000 I'm not worried about; you'll throw that code if any emissions relate d codes are tripped.

I get it EVERY day now. I remember reading somewhere that Spartan can change something in your tune to correct this, but I think it requires waiting for a new tune. I THINK. Mine doesnt seem to affect drivability at all, but I too am curious what is causing this?
