PO171 is lean code for bank 1. PO401 indicates the computer has determined Exhaust Gas re-circulation is insufficient. Check the net for Ford vehicles which experience both codes as once. Saw a couple of videos which may be of help.

Check for clogged ports on the EGR valve. The passageways get carbon-like deposits that block the EGR valve.
