generally, when the engine is washed, water gets trapped behind the spark unit and stays there, creating a shorting path for spark plug current. best to dis-mount the spark unit (follow plug wires back to source) and dry and clean it thoroughly.

Idle air control valve is the problem. "idle motor" tap it with a hammer it should temporarily solve your problem. it is right on top by the throttle body.

There could be many issues. These codes read your engine is running too lean. Check : all your vacuum hoses for leaks, PCV valve and hose, MAF sensor. This may require an experienced technician to figure this out. Hopefully I help'd!!

If you have this problem its possible you got water in the main harness conector on the top middle firewall. I used a hairdryer and put some silicone on mine to help. Also, the coils on the sparkplugs and the rubber around the spark plug can easily fill with water so check all plugs and holes.
