Are you getting both codes at the same time?? If so its probably your camshaft positioning sensor. If its running terrible with both codes at the same time its probably your vct solenoid.

Also this is disheartening. I had gates parts on my car when i did my timing belt and those same parts have now gone through 2 rebuilds. I bought new ones since the old stuff has about 30k on it and I ordered gates stuff again. Makes me want to use the stuff with 30k on it since i know that they are still good and hold
