You will need to do an obd 2 scan. You can do this at advance auto or autozone. Its a sensor problem. Once you find out the code of what sensor is bad, you replace it

I got ripped off by a dealer with a similar problem that came back two weeks later. $2.99 of vacuum hose later I fixed it myself. Check all the vacuum lines for rotted hoses before you fork out 3K and they are easy to do
