    I'm guessing the codes are P0171 & P0174. You have a massive vac leak. Most likely at the rubber elbows or rubber hoses going to the PCV valve.
    Quite frankly I would replace both upstream O2 sensors just for preventive maintenance.
    When was the last time you changed the spark plugs. If you decide to change the plugs make sure you also change the rubber boots between the plug and coil.
