Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

P0471 is for the performance of the number 1 exhaust temperature sensor, P1270 is for the swirl valve issue already being repaired. This could be a wiring issue or an exhaust or engine issue creating unexpected temperatures, but its most likely the sensor itself.

Have these issues been repaired and it still runs poorly or have repairs not been done yet?
