Question about Cars & Trucks

P1506, p0171, p0174

The car threw the codes P1506, P0171 and P0174. The car shuts off after coming to the first stop. Sometimes, it will stop after a while of idling after I leave it warming up, but after I turn the car back on it might shut off again, but it rarely happens. When idling, before the car shuts off, it goes as low as 600 rpms to as as high as 1200. When I turn the car on it idles normally after the first or second stall. I checked for vacuum leaks, but it has none. I'm thinking it is the IAC valve. But the guys at Autozone it is possibly the MAF. Does anyone have a better suggestion?

SOURCE: Codes P0171, and P0174 bLean on a 98 Navigator. Any ideas?

O171 MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) Just try cleaning this part it usually solves that problem without having to buy new part.

0174 Both are mass air flow sensors. The other problem can be a vacuum leak Check PCV valave and all vacuum lines. Also make sure fuel filter and fuel pump are working correctly. You can clean the MAF with some brake cleaner make sure it is dry before you install it back

SOURCE: p0171 and p0174 codes

P0171 System too Lean (Bank 1)
P0174 System too Lean (Bank 2)

If a car has a check engine light on and has P0171 and P0174 codes stored, the most likely cause is a vacuum leak. These codes are set by the car’s computer when it sees too much oxygen in the exhaust. Excessive oxygen readings in the exhaust will set lean codes. This does not mean that the oxygen sensors are defective. It is a common mistake for people to replace oxygen sensors when lean codes are present. Just because the code is related to oxygen sensor readings, it doesn’t mean that the oxygen sensors are bad. If both of these codes are stored this means that both banks of the engine have excessive oxygen in the exhaust. If the oxygen sensors are replaced it’s most likely that the same codes will reappear. It is very uncommon for two oxygen sensors to fail at the same time.

Therefore the most likely cause of P0171 and P0174 codes is a vacuum leak. The source of a vacuum leak can be one of many things. The most common cause of a vacuum leak is a leaky hose. Vacuum hoses over time can become dry and brittle. The rubber deteriorates and can leak causing a vacuum loss. Many times a leaky vacuum hose can be found by listening for a hissing sound. A large vacuum leak can even make the car run rough at idle. In some cases it will not idle without feathering the gas pedal.

SOURCE: diagonostic trouble codes reported p0171

P0171 is system too lean bank 1, P0174 is too lean bank 2, and 302 is misfire bank 1. Look for vacuum leaks. If you don't find them, put a vacuum gage on it can check. The P0171 is almost always a vacuum leak. If not other possibilities are front O2 sensor is too old and should be replaced (if mileage is greater than 100k then replace). Try injector cleaner. Misfires are usually bad spark plugs, but could possibly be caused by insufficient fuel. I've never had a car of mine in bad enough shape to have that error.

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the described symptoms.

Condition/Concern:
Check Engine Light with a P0300 due to 2 - 4 cylinders misfiring on the same bank of the engine. DTCs P0171, P0172, P0174 or P0175 may also set for the misfiring bank.

Recommendation/Instructions:
If the published misfire diagnostic does not isolate the cause, perform the following suggestions as necessary:

  • Perform a fuel injector balance test for all 8 cylinders. If a fuel injector concern exists, it is possible to misfuel an entire bank of the engine, causing multiple cylinders on the same bank to misfire even though the root cause is a single fuel injector.
  • Inspect O2 sensor connections on the misfiring bank for corrosion or water intrusion. If water intrusion is found on the right bank, it may be due to the AC Evaporator Condensation dripping onto the O2 sensor harness. If this condition is found, reposition and shield the harness to prevent a repeat concern and repair the connections.
  • Check for excessive exhaust backpressure using the restricted exhaust diagnosis.
  • Swap the Position 1 O2 sensors side to side to see if the misfires move to the other bank of the engine. If so, replace the O2 sensor.
Please follow this diagnosis process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

NOTE: GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition.

check for vacuum leaks or a faulty mass air flow sensor. all the codes have to do with engine too lean(too much air).

I have a 1997 Ford F-150. It didn't pass emissions. The Codes that came up are as follows, P1506,P0171,P0430,P0174. And comments, P0430Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold( Bank 2 ), and...


The p1506 is the Idle speed control Solenoid making the engine overspeed at idle. This is a small air regulating solenoid which fits into a shallow well on the intake manifold. Take it out and clean with WD40 and then try it, it is probably gummed up.

The p430 can be a worn out catalytic converter. The can be purchased new in the aftermarket or bought used at a Salvage yard. Car-parts.com will be a good place to try. Or go new with an aftermarket unit.

The 0171 and 0174 are lean codes. Check your intake manifold for leaks or when you fix the Air control solenoid I mentioned, these problems may go away. If not use a water mist around the engine seams when the engine is running to pinpoint leaks. The rpm will change.

The price of the catalytics has come down, and used parts will work too. Hope my solutions get you going for less than the price quotes.

Ford windstar check engine light comes on after stopping when starting to get moving again shows p0171 & p0174 codes why??


P0171 indicates a lean condition. The most common cause of this is a defective mass air flow sensor. Also check if any vacuum leaks. P0174 OBD-II Trouble Code


Technical Description

System Too Lean (Bank 2)


What does that mean?

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust.

Note: This DTC is very similar to P0171, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.

Thanks.
