Hello and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question.

In most cases this code is set due to a vacuum leak and the place to start is to have a close look at the PCV supply line to make sure its not rotted out and leaking and if it checks ok the the usual suspect is the upper intake gasket leaking and the gasket will have to be replaced.
