By the sound of it maybe a idle control sensor check fuel filter/pump pressure spark and coils near the belt get a free scan at auto zone one of your codes will be emissions and o2 sensors thats normal with a car missing so look for idle control sensor or throttle position sensor let me know what it says the code number write them down when you goto autozone
