Hi Matthew. Thanks for contacting us tonight. You can learn more about these trouble codes by clicking the blue links - P-0134 and the P-0140 code. In regards to taking them seriously, any OBD-II trouble code indicates a problem that should always be resolved sooner than later. You should contact the manufacturer of your cold intake system to determine what they recommend for resolving this issue.
