Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0400 stands for EGR Flow Malfunction. Sometimes this code is set when the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor detects a pressure change too small or too large.

The MAP sensor is located on right side of firewall.

Replacing the MAP sensor could not be the solution. There are more variables that could set the DTC P0400. Some diagnostics are;
*Check all vacuum hoses connections, inspect for leaks, clogs or incorrect routing.
*Check for malfunction in the EGR solenoid vacuum valve or the EGR by-pass valve.
*Check for a poor PCM electrical connection.
