P0069 = MAP Sensor Too High or Too Low, I have seen this once before where the plugs have been switched between the the Power steering pump and Pressure sensor ( see pic ) otherwise Toyota's diag process says fix other codes in your case P0400/P1251 and if this is then the only code Replace the Engine ECU.

No problem. P0400 is an exhaust gas flow issue and not specifically the EGR valve. The exhaust gas exits the exhaust and first enters the EGR cooler ( Blue ) through EGR pipe, through passenger side of Cylinder head, through EGR pipe in to EGR valve and out into the intake manifold.

All the car can tell is when it calls the EGR valve to open/close that it cannot see the expected changes so assumes an EGR valve blockage.

Ensure the entire EGR gas circuit is clear on carbon build up, remove the intake manifold ensure it and the ports into the head are clear.

Is the valve a genuine one ( Toyota offer recon genuine which have had all the mod's carried out to match the latest spec) had plenty of non-genuine valves throwing EGR codes.

Has the EGR circuit been blanked off or restricted  (blank with a small hole )
