These codes ( Cylinder banks one and two lean) indicate that your engine is running lean, that is to say to much air and not enough fuel, since both cylinder banks are giving the same system lean code you do have a problem with fuel mixture control and not the O2 sensors, look for engine vacuum leaks like hoses, spray around the intake manifold with propane to see if the engine sounds different, when you find a leak it will change the idle speed, you can also have a detective Mass Airflow sensor or loose hose clamps on the engines air intake hose after the MAF sensor. causing this if no vacuum leaks are found

Testimonial: "Thanks Dennis! We just replaced the hoses on the power steering . That was leaking. O2 sensors have been coding also. We shall go back in there to check hoses and clamps. I think I still hear the pump some. But then I think it is just the Chevy whine. My Camaro has about 180,000 so I guess it's about time isome some things to go! It does seem like it is not getting enough gas. On taking off easy it kind do hesitates. If I get down on it it goes. But last couple. Of days it seems like it is having a hrd time running and getting enough gas. We will try your solution. Thanks"

dont take soo much in consideration after you have make all this things, some time is on only for any wire faulty, or a shrt electrical arc in any place in wire system. ask auto tap mechsnics for this maybe they have similar case before.

SOURCE: i am having a problem with a 2001 ford windstar.

Two bad O2 sensors is rare. The problem is before the sensor,intake vacuum leak, injector lower o-ring, IMCR stuck open or the control rod is off, vacuum hose(s) off, or MAF sensor. If this has a plastic upper intake, they had problems with o-rings.

switch, we run off snitches. 171 174 banks 1 & 2 Lean. Most likely cause are Upper Intake Manifold Gaskets, failed seals. It's not 1990 on. It's 1996 and on OBD2.

P171 Lean to bank one
P172 Rich to bank one
P174 Lean to bank two
P175 Rich to bank two.

These are conflicting codes. I would suspect that you have a bad MAF sensor. take it out and try and clean it before you replace it. It could also be a bad O2 sensor. But unlikely that both sides went bad at the same time.

PO 171 and PO 174

You did not list a vehicle, so here are the generic codes.
Code 171 is system lean bank one and code 174 is system lean bank two.
The computer is getting a signal from the O2 sensors saying the fuel system is too lean, and the computer can not make it rich.
Possible causes are low fuel pressure, vac leaks, EGR valve problems, and so on.

Try some injector cleaner in order to see if the lean condition improves. Lean conditions can sometimes be caused by o2 sensors or other sensors that are not within specifications.

these are trouble codes indicating -171-bank 1,174-bank2, both sides of the engine are to lean, many causes and extensive diagnosis procedures. low fuel pressure seems primary,leaking vacumn hoses, incorrect oxygen sensor readings,gas in the oil,and many other problems.if you are determined to fix this yourself you can go to mitchellonline and pay for short term use of their service info. very extensive.guess work not advised.
