They didn't give me codes. It said what was wrong on the tester.

I'm guessing that the codes are 124, 167, and 332.

I did some research and if I had to start throwing parts at it, I'd start with the Throttle Position Sensor.
This is a guess though so I can't guarantee anything but that is the one component that could affect the way that the computer is interpreting the information that it is receiving from the other sensors that are also throwing codes.
The IAT may or may not be related.

Look at it this way, if you take it to a shop they will probably charge you $80 to figure out what's wrong plus the parts to correct it and the labor to install the parts.

Its actually for smog actually (big surprise) it so you cant have them reset it right before you smog your car. And yes you can do that by un hooking the battery for a while but that isn't really common knowledge to the average joe

Our truck had the CEL on for the longest time, so our friend has one of those code readers that can do most stuff (including resetting the codes). So my dad reset the code, brought it in, and it passed. Not too long after the CEL came back on lmao
