I would do a compression test , IACV wouldnt cause this , mass air could
See if you can find a local FF member that has a xcal2 or 3 and send me a datalog and lets see whats happening
The code you set could be a
bad o2 sensor
bad o2 fuse
bad wiring to the o2 from fuse
Vac leak on the engine
I would find the problem then fix it , see if you can barrow a xcal2 - 3

Shaking hard? While idling or??????
Generally, idling and shaking is the result of a misfire, but it would likely throw a code for it. If it's shaking hard while accelerating that could be a Throttle position sensor.

There is a LOT of knowledge here and people willing to help you but first we need to know what codes your getting if any and what the issues are ??????
The PCV is located just below the header/head and to the right side , between the header and block right about where the trans bolts to the block

|cylenotkyle||My dad thinks it may be the PCV Valve. Does anyone know where that is located on a zetec? or the Air Idle control valve. I read that these are common problems and a lot cheaper than replacing the Catalytic converter. photos or a video would be nice.|

Like others say, get other opinions from other mechanics. Lean over their shoulder while they do the scanning or get it down at Autozone for free. Then you have the codes yourself and can cut out the middleman even worse.
Knowledge is power and money, baby............

Have you joined your regional forum? There ought to be a member in your region that can help you turn some wrenches.
Agreed you are getting taken to the cleaners with those estimates. I know biggest dealer here charges $125/hr. That's ridiculous to me. But some things HAVE to be done at the dealer.
