P0401-EGR System Performance-Needs a DPFE Sensor- AutoZone has it but refers to it as a EGR pressure sensor.
P0301-Cylinder #1 Misfire- Check the spark plugs and wires first. Number one is in the back unfortunately, you will have to remove the R. cowl screen, the R. cowl piece that the screen sits on and unbolt the igintion coil pack to get at it. You do not have to remove the Intake to do them. Same applies for the DPFE sensor. Just disconnect the connector and wiggle the sensor off the hoses. How many miles by the way??? If it does need spark plugs do the wires too. I did only plugs on mine and ended up with an intermitent skip at idle.
P1401-Think this is another EGR code.

Then you're due for spark plugs. Just remove one of your front plugs and check the gap- it should be worn wide, which will cause the misfire. The plugs are numbered 1-2-3 on the back 3 from the R. side of the car to the L., 4-5-6 in the front. Remember, replace the plug wires too!!!
