Default Please help! 10 Check engine codes

Hello fellow mustang owners!

I've just purchased a 2002 v6 mustang with 170k on it, as i was on a tight budget and trying to give it some love, but it looks like the previous owner was not as enthusiastic as i am...

Car is throwing 10 distinct error codes. I assume some of them are a consequence of another, but i don't know what i should fix first to start nocking them out one by one.

If there is some one with expertise who could advise me with a plan of attack, id really appreciate that. Here is what i get:

P1000 On Board Diagnostics II Monitor/Drive Cycle Test Not Complete
P1519 Intake Manifold Runner Control Runner Control Stuck Closed
P0443 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit
P1451 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Valve Circuit Malfunction
P0135 Oxygen Sensor Heater circuit bank 1 Sensor 1
P0141 Oxygen Sensor Heater circuit bank 1 Sensor 2
P0155 Oxygen Sensor Heater circuit bank 2 Sensor 1
P0161 Oxygen Sensor Heater circuit bank 2 Sensor 2
P1409 Electronic Vacuum Regulator Control Circuit

Thank you!

some or all of these codes can be generated by disconnecting things while the engine is running. i would try to clear them and see which ones return first. if they do your imrc, is either bad or the white clips that hold the runner linkage to the motor are broken. next the 2 evap codes are for your vent solenoid, that is located at the LR of the vehicle on the charcoal canister. check the connector for corrosion and make sure that the wires arent damaged, if all checks out i would suspect the vent solenoid is faulty. next, the fact that you are throwing all 4 heater codes leads me to believe that you have either a blow fuse that feed the heaters or a wiring concern.
