Expert:  Andrew replied 5 years ago.
ok can you get all of the codes again so we can nail down a pattern to the issue you are having it would make it alot easier. the two codes you mentioned can cause the issue you are having also a bad idle control valve can cause the issue. if you could get the codes again it would make it easier to help you out..

p0505 and p1457 i changed out the throttle body yesterday and it had all the sensors on it but i got it used. these are the codes i got after i put it on i had 6 before i put it on

Expert:  Andrew replied 5 years ago.

po505 is a fault in the idle control system more then likely a bad iac valve. also check for loose or unconnected vacuum tubes on the intake...

 

p1457 is an evap bypass solenoid failure...check for corrosion on the connector for it and if non is found then replace it and celar the codes out...the pic attached shows its location.
