So I got it scanned and it came back with PO170/173,P1189/1188 and P1250. I looked the codes up and it shows as something related to the fuel system. Any ideas what it could be?

It sounds like it could be a number of things like the CVV, MAF, 02 sensors, intake boot according to some posts I came across. Is there anyway to pinpoint the problem rather than just going through a replacing parts?

This article suggests to inspect the vacuum leaks in the intake system and any other vacuum and air handling hoses. Do you think the noise is more indicative of a CVV failure and probably not related to something else?
