My 97 buick stalls some time and wont start for while
My 97 buick i get a code that reads system to lean bank 1 what should i check the maf sensor gas cap fuel filter if the maf is there a way to test it without buying new one first i get code po171 system to lean bank 1

A code P0174 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry. There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor. Possible Solutions Possible solutions include: In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure
code p0171 refers to system too lean bank 1 causes---intake exhaust leak--- AIR system----MAF?VAF sensor fuel pressure/ pump injectors HO2S code p0174 refers to System to lean bank 2 causes the same except Maf and vaf are not mentioned and hose connections are added code p0316 refers to misfire detected at star up first 1000 revs causes ---engine mechanicval fault---wiring---ignition/ fuel system--injector code p0430 refers to cat convertersystem bank 2-- effeciency below threshold causes ----cat converter--- wiring ----HO2S. Personally I would chewck the cat converter first as if it is blocking the exhaust system the ret of the sensors will have irregular readings.
it means that the O2 sensors in your vehicle detected a lean condition in their respective banks. this could be caused by a dirty MAF (mass air flow) sensor or a vacuum leak downstream from the MAF sensor
sometimes you can clean the MAF with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner but be sure to take it off the vehicle first. be careful not to damage the MAF while spraying the cleaner, and allow it to dry completely before installing it on the vehicle.
P0171 indicates a lean condition. The most common cause of this is a defective mass air flow sensor. Also check if any vacuum leaks.Replace MAf sensor,if cleaning the MAF does not help. OBD II P0172 Fuel System Too Rich (Bank 1).P0172 - System Too Rich (Bank 1) Essentially this DTC means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a rich condition. When the code says that the Fuel System is "too rich," it means that the computer has been subtracting more and more fuel, which is called Long Term Fuel Trim. Ideally, the Long Term Fuel Trim should be close to 1 to 2 percent. When a code P0172 is set, it means that the Fuel Trim is anywhere from -15 percent to as low as -30 percent compensated. When this happens, the computer knows that there is an improper condition in the control of the Fuel System.
Your sensors are reading correctly so leave them alone. What you have is a fuel delivery issue. Your MAF sensor is telling your engine to lean your fuel mixture. You need to remove and clean or replace (is better) the MAF. But first replace your PVC valve and clean your ERG valve.
those codes are for lean engine condition look for vac leaks at the back of engine to the pcv valve could hear hissing noise with engine running also check egr valve to be stuck open also when was last fuel filter changed? hope this helps .
171 system too lean
174 system too lean
2195 - 02 ozygen sensor signal stuck lean Bank1 Sensor 1
2197- 02 ozygen sensor signal stuck lean Bank 2 Sensor 1
The 2 front 02 sensors are located on the front of
the exhaust manifold.
Should solve problem and increase gas mileage.
