Change shops or DIY.

For DIY get a cheap OBD tool and use live data to see fuel trims - read forum messages about how & those codes.

Stop swapping parts at silly cost and find out what is actually wrong.

P0171 & P0174 are nearly always a vacuum leak. Just do a search here and read the conditions and results. There are too many threads to repost.

+1 above

A common cause of those codes has been the 1 in dia crankcase breather hose from the cambox nearest the radiator to the inlet manifold. It wears and splits on its underside out of sight

Also check the brake booster check valve and check the accordian hose between the MAF sensor and the throttle body to make sure it isn't split or loose.
