Good morning Ron, I hope you are doing great today. My name is***** am a GM master technician and would be happy to assist you with this.

So what you are seeing is a very popular combination of codes on these engine models. About 90% of the time it turns out to be a bad throttle body assembly, and the other 10% is either a loose air intake or dirty throttle plate. Verify that there are no leaks at the intake, and that the throttle is clean, if so then the truck is going to need a throttle assembly
