Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

With those codes it most likely has a bad purge solenoid. This is part of the evaporative emissions system and it will not hurt to let it go a bit if needed before addressing it and it may not even set the codes again.. if not dont fix it till its broken.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for helping you. THanks.
