Why is EGR important to the p0401 code?

Usually on an OBD2 system that sets the P0401, the ECM/PCM must see the failure on two consecutive trips before it will permanently set the code and trigger the Check Engine Light. The EGR system is important because it reduces emissions by allowing burnt exhaust gas to flow back into the engine.

What can cause an EGR valve to malfunction?

EGR valves can malfunction by becoming stuck open or closed due to carbon buildup. When the trouble code P0401 is set, CO2 is reintroduced to the combustion chamber at the incorrect time or in incorrect amounts, which does not decrease the combustion temperature sufficiently enough to prevent the increase of NOx.

When to use the p003a boost control DTC?

The ECM illuminates the check engine light (CEL) with P003A and related codes when it detects a fault within the boost control system. The P003A DTC is activated when the ECM (Engine Control Module) detects the position of the “A” boost control arm (connected to the vanes), to be out of desired range(s).
