After replacing the oil filler tube wtih out removing the intake manifold, which was BTW very difficult with adult hands, I started getting the P1124 & P1126 codes. After deleting the codes several times, it came on a few times after this. Last time I went to the car for a quick warm up after sitting for several weeks, the code just disappeared. Last week after a 150 miles run as I was parking the car the CEL light came on. Once I got home I scanned it and both the P1124 and P1126 were on as well as a new code P0150. I got a respectable 28MPG at highways speeds and some city driving during the trip. No missing, or performance issues. I will check all the items I have read about to make sure there is no vacuum leaks. I already triple checked the oil filler tube and there was no leakage or issues there.  If there are any other things I should check out, Let me know.

Replacing the oil filler tube in tight quarters is tough.  I would start with chasing every vacuum hose to see if one came loose!  Also, when I swapped out an oil filler tube once the dipstick tube also needed replacement.  You can cut out a section and slice in surgical tubing in it's place.

Also, the black plastic vacuum tubing used in the secondary air system gets very brittle over time and it does not take much to crack one.  I second kbrandsma's comment about looking for a loose vacuum hose but also look very carefully for a damaged/broken tube.  It would be very easy to do while changing an oil filler tube without realizing that you did.
