Wasn't meaning to come across as condescending, perhaps poor attempt at humor on my part, which was lost in translation. I apologize to OP if that's how it came across.

The how likely is it that the ccv could be the problem on this? The idle shuts it off shortly after start up. Did all this other stuff and am thinking if I change disa only and it's not the full problem I'll be disappointed
Are you saying that your car shuts off shortly after starting?

I would check the fuel pressure and clean the ICV.

Thanks, we cleaned the icv, drove it today and it just hard idled, I have read a thread on the oil separator hose, I'm going to check that when I get to the car tomorrow. (before messing with the whole Cvv, y'all know anything about that? A lot of the codes in the thread were similar to the codes mine threw off.
