Hello the 2195 & 2197 is usually due to a stuck open evaporative emissions purge valve, check the valve and see if this is the source of your whistling noise. If its whistling from the egr valve, replace the valve. Neither should really cause a lack of power, that could be due to a weak fuel pump or clogged catalytic convertor. Check the items mentioned and go from there.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
