I called for parts and I was told the sensors were a one piece item. For around 100.00 (dealer) price
Could this include all the items you mentioned?

My sons work on cars ... Is this something they could possibly do?
Can I call autozone for additional parts if necessary?

Yes the sesnor is part of the throttle body. You can only get the parts at the dealer. the part numbers are


Throttle Body Assembly, P/N 12589056
Throttle Body Seal, P/N 12581398
Throttle Body Harness Connector, P/N 88988585

You won't find them in the aftermarket. the price is around $400
