Hi yeah check YouTube just go to youtube and put in your code and there's some good advice on there I just checked on YouTube for your problem for your code and a guy was telling me that it could be your spark plugs that are bad or could be your plastic manifold coming off the engine could have leaks he said while the engine is running spray gas accelerant starter fluid around the manifold to see if its leaking cuz it could be you have a vacuum leak? A vacuum leak or could be a loose vacuum hose then he said also you could have a clogged fuel filter replacing a bad fuel filter, even could be a bad battery so check YouTube! Having multiple things wrong or just 1 thing could be the problem/problems you can go ahead and check to see these area's I mentioned these's might be wrong or 1 thing like I said before that's all I can say for you hope this helps?
