The P0405 code indicates a problem with the EGR valve. It may be bad or dirty. You can remove it and clean it with throttle body cleaner. Make sure the tube to the EGR is not blocked. As for the other two codes the it indicates a problem with the speed sensor in the transmission. They do go bad and you should probably have it replaced. This will cure some of your issues when driving.

Definitely looks like two seperate problems....

Trying to remember if there was a TSB on this problem, but it should have been fixed by was about the EGR freezing, and which EGR you had, top connection or side connection(Siemans) the tsb, you had to replace the EGR and harness, depending on which EGR you had.....

However, this code is usually about the pintle position sensor....

As for the other two codes, could be the speed sensor, the wiring to it, or the PCM....

In both cases, the only way to know for sure is with a scan tool....
