Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.What repair shop is doing these checks for you?
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.
The reason I would like to know who is doing the checks is cause with these codes this is normally a MAF sensor issue. If they were trying MAF sensors from your local auto parts store, they never work right. I won a bet with my boss on this. I installed 4 MAF sensors from 3 different auto parts stores, and showed him everyone did not work. If one did meter air properly, it would flat line 02 sensor readings. So let me know who is looking at this issue for you.
