I added two screenshots of the fault codes. I kind of have a pretty good feeling it's the crankshaft position sensor.

O.k.,this model only uses one crank sensor with this engine here.Part number 12613030 for a dealer cost of around $49.16.It is located at the back of the engine on the passenger side as shown as #15 below.Your model does use 4 cam sensors.
