Before you take it in, I would recommend you check the code to be sure it's the same codes (P2187 and P2189). also, check your vacuum lines. I have replaced my both my ccv's (the one in Bank 1 was cut all the way around and the rubber diaphragm was completely severed. I replaced both ccv's and used my cheap $35 code reader to reset the codes. I have driven the car for almost 200 miles and so far all clear. So I'm pretty confident at this point the issue was the damaged diaphragm. Today, we took the engine covers off and give a it good inspection and ensured all the visible vacuum lines are secure. we also took the opportunity to clean as much as we could using WD40 and left a lot of WD40 on the hoses and electrical connectors to help keep them from drying out.
