I would go to this link and follow this article. I wrote this as I do Emissions Diagnosis and Repair at a Gold Shield Station in Calif. A P0401 is somewhat common on Toyota and they can be stubborn to resolve. The passages have to be 'perfecto' clean and I have seen a few of the vacuum solenoids fail on an intermittent basis. It is common for the transducer to become weak as well.
