Hello. Welcome to Just Answer., Please allow me to assist you. The codes 24 and 32 indicate issues with the Mass Air Flow ("MAF") sensor. You may have something as simple as a cracked air tube that connects the MAF to the engine, or, a faulty MAF. Replacement of the MAF on this particular model is rather expensive. Further diagnosis by a qualified tech with a good scan too (that can read the MAF input values) would be recommended before purchasing a replacement unit.
