You have a build up of oil/water in the resevoir on your air intake duct, take the two clamps off, one on the throttle body, the other off the air filter box and spray the duct work with brake fluid cleaner (outside if possible) make sure you spray the resevoir, then wipe clean your throttle body with a cloth sprayed with carb cleaner. After the duct work is dry reassemble, clear your codes with a code reader and you should be good to go
Run into one of the big autoparts places like advanced auto, autozone, or Pep Boys, I believe they will all give free trouble code scan, which should pinpoint problem better, and save time and money. If fix isn't obvious from codes, then get back to us with those codes and we'll advise you further.
