Hi, the P0171 and P0174 are usually going to be caused by an intake leak, or a bad mass air flow sensor. I'd smoke test the intake for leaks and try a new MAF. The P0016 will usually be a bad camshaft adjuster magnet. I'd either swap the magnet with the one next to it to see if the code moves or just replace the magnet. The P0455 can be caused by a loose fuel filler cap or a leak in the canister purge system.Let me know if you need further assistance.Marty
