'05 chevy colorado idle problem in nuetral

It's an '05 Colorado Z-71 2wd 4 cyl (2.8L) with manual trans. When I'm in neutral or trying to shift it drops rpms and starts shaking voilently. I originally thought I got some poor gas with maybe some water. So I changed a fuel filter, used some sea-foam and it didn't work. I took it to an auto parts store and used their diagnostic machine and it gave me 3 codes. #1 P0017: crank/cam correlation #2 P0014: exhaust cam post time adv #3 P0101: mass air circuit. I tried cleaning out the mass air sensor between the air filter and intake and I think it may even be worse now. Can anyone help?!?!

SOURCE: 2005 chevy colorado runs rough and gets bad gas mileage.

Sounds like it needs spark plugs and wires, and a fuel system treatment.

Low idle on chevy colorado

The best thing to do is run a trouble code check on it.
Other than that check for a vaccum leak, the EGR valve, or the idle air control valve.
