I'm thinking there is a single problem causing the two codes

    nope, 2 separate issues.
    401 is an egr flow code. need to get a diag on the components for the egr system. the most common failure is the dpfe sensor but you need to have it verified first.
    the 171 is a lean code. it could be a vacuum leak, mass air flow failure. pcv problem or low fuel pressure. it also needs to be diaged properly to verify.
