still, several are undefined and/or not applicable to your vehicle (ie for diesel engines only). please have the car scanned with a regular obd scanner and post the codes here.

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

in that case I would change al o2 sensors, check for intake air leaks or a failed crankcase vent valve, or failed airflow sensor.

finally, the secondary air pump and valves will need to be checked for proper operation.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
