I'd check gas cap seal for cracks if not replace it first.

Re: Techs and mechanics...codes on a camaro??

I would address p1406, and p1441 first, as they are most likely causing p0174. sounds like the EGR valve pintle is stuck due to possible carbon build up, remove the EGR and look for carbon, around the needle pintle. then I would check all the hoses going to EVAP canister for damage or disconnects, also check for a faulty gas cap, if the tank does not pressurize it will throw a 1441 code.

Re: Techs and mechanics...codes on a camaro??

egr is likely failed, common on those with some age, 174 is the result of this, check for any re-cals at the dealer as well. cat dtc, cat has failed, likely due to the above.

Re: Techs and mechanics...codes on a camaro??

Ya.... Your cats most likely toast especially if you are running slightly lean and got some good heat build up, the cylinder bank should be fine though. I agree with everything else though.

Gas cap is the problem 80% of the time, had a gf one time who wouldn't listen to me because her brother-in-law was the head tech.... She spent over 500 dollars to find out it was a gas cap in the end go figure. haha
