Service engine light soon.CodeP0101

Here is the meaning of the code.

P0101 GMC Description The Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor is placed in the stream of intake air. It measures the intake flow rate by measuring a part of the entire intake flow. It consists of a hot film that is supplied with electric current from the Engine Control Module (ECM).

The temperature of the hot film is controlled by the ECM acertain amount. The heat generated by the hot film is reduced as the intake air flows around it. The more air, the greater the heat loss. Therefore, the ECM must supply more electric current to maintain the temperature of the hot film as air flow increases. The ECM detects the air flow by means of this current change.

Vw jetta code p0128

this obd2 trouble code table can help you understand the meaning of code.
and for p0128, you can try:

Verify coolant strength & level

Verify proper cooling fan operation (check if it's running more than it should). Replace if necessary.

Verify proper engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor operation, replace if necessary.

Verify proper intake air temperature (IAT) sensor operation, replace if necessary.

If the above items check out good, replace the thermostat

Lean running condition A lean running condition means that the air/fuel mixture is unbalanced, and that the engine is getting either too much air, not enough fuel, or a combination of both. Optimally, this ratio should be around 14.7 parts air to 1 part fuel by mass, at low or cruising loads. This ratio is known as stoichiometric for gasoline. Ideally, at WOT, you should aim between 11.5:1 (Rich best torque at WOT) and 13.3:1 (Lean best torque at WOT).
Running lean, like having your spark timing too advanced, creates much more heat during the combustion process. This can lead to piston seizure, a hole in the piston, melted spark plug electrode or other complications due to overheating. You will not be producing peak power, and your exhaust will also emit more oxides of nitrogen, arguably one of the worst byproducts of gasoline combustion for our environment.
Common causes of a lean running condition are an improperly tuned carburetor, clogged fuel line, clogged fuel filter, or a vacuum leak.
Preforming a plug chop is a good way to find out if your engine is running too lean, as you will see a powdery white residue on your spark plug in the presence of a lean condition.
On the other end of the spectrum, richer ratios will also cause lost power, however this will most likely be accompanied by black smoke (around the 9:1 fuel/air ratio area), and fouled spark plugs.

Your crankshaft sensor doesn't always make the light blink. I'm almost positive it your crankshaft sensor.

My 97 taurus takes a long time to start sometimes not until engine cools down after driven. obd2 codes 443 174 171 keep showing up then engine light comes on then sputters and stalls can anyone tell me...

P171 and 174 is running lean that means you have either no fuel pressure, bad fuel pump, cloged fuel filter and somethimes vacum leak on your intake manifold gasket.
443 indicates EGR valve solenoid malfunction.

Vacumm control for intake runner

Are you refering to the EGR valve?
Also, when they replace something on your vehicle, they are required to reset the check engine light. Otherwise you won't know if something goes wrong again because the light is already on. Sounds fishy to me. It may be just a vacuum leak, but is good to have new plugs and wires and fuel and air filter.
