Throttle body gasket. EGR gasket. PCV valve.

I'd say they snowed you about that MAF.

The EGR valve is a saucer-shaped gizmo about 3 inches across. It bolts onto the UIM on the back corner, near the firewall, just aft of the throttle body. There is a green vacuum tube plugged into the top of it, and a steel hose going out of the bottom of it. A pair of 10mm bolts hold it in place. The gasket is about 2 dollars.

THis might be a stupid question, but did they reset your ecu? If not, try unhooking your battery for approx 11-15 minutes and then rehooking it. If you changed all this out without resetting the ecu, you'll still show a code, it's running codes stored in memory.

Just to add to that..unhooking your battery will not clear the code from memory. It will reset your cel unless you use a code reader.

Ah, okay. I was going off what I know best; EEC-IV, my bad. I guess I need to get mine reset too then.
