I just changed plugs on my 05' you have to remove the intake plentum to gain acsess to the rear plugs. First remove plastic cover from top of engine, remove intake hose to throtle body, unplug electrical connections to sensors on plentum, unhook vaccum lines, there are two coolant lines that need to unhooked from underneth throttle body, remove plentum support bolts, one on back and one on right side towards rear, a flash light and a mirror is useful for locating these bolts, there is also two vaccumn lines on the very back off plentum that have to be removed. remove clip on back off plentum that secures the hose that goes across the side of the plentum. Remove the six hold down bolts on plentum, and remove plentum. Spark plugs are acsessed by removing the coil packs for each cylinder, simply remove each coil pack hold down bolt and remove coil, plugs are underneth coil packs, you will need a long extension and a 5/8 spark plug socket to remove plugs.

P2195 and P2197 means that the O2 sensors on each bank are seeing WAY
too much oxygen in the exhaust gas. In normal operation the signal from
the O2 sensors should swing back and forth between rich and lean...
Your sensors are locked on lean. Replace both O2 sensor.
Hope helps (remember rated this).

The descriptions for your codes are:
P2197 - H02S (RF) signal stuck lean
P2195 - H02S (RF) signal stuck lean
P2187 - Fuel System too lean at idle
P0102 - MAF circuit low input
Essentially what's happening is that your MPV is running too lean when at idle. Too much air and not enough fuel. As you speed up - it forces more air into the system which alleviates the problem.
Examine your mass airflow sensor. It should be completely clean - no fuzzies on it at all. If so - purchase some mass airflow sensor cleaner to clean the sensor. ONLY USE THE PROPER CLEANER TO AVOID DAMAGING THE SENSOR. Disconnect the battery to reset the system and turn off check engine light.
Otherwise you will need a scan tool to look at the voltages being supplied to/from the PCM for each of the Heated Oxygen Sensors and the Mass Airflow Sensor to determine which part is creating the problem.
