    You can look them up individually for your year at gearchatter.com I'd troubleshoot P0107 first. Not familiar with EGR codes but the first thing to check for P0410 and P0412 is the AIR PUMP fuse under the hood. If you don't have air/egr maybe the codes weren't turned off.

    Do you run a K&N filter or any other type of oiled air filter?

    I've seen oiled filters contaminate mass-air sensors. What will happen is the oil residue will collect on the sensor wires and then super fine particles of dust stick to that eventually coating the whole wire. You can take the 4 torx screws out and look at the wires to see if they are dirty. It should be obvious if thats the problem.Good luck.
