I have just submitted a report to have your question moved and addressed in the appropriate Lexus category.
The codes you have pulled from the car are for the intake and air flow meter malfunctions, a couple things to check here. Open the hood and look on the passenger side where the air filter is located, just behind the air filter there is a sensor with 5 wires going to it that is referred to as the mass air flow meter. Check to be sure that this sensor is securely connected. If the sensor is securely conneted then remove the 2 phillips head screws that hold it in and inspect the sensor for contamination or dirt. You most likely have a loose electrical connection here or a defective sensor.
