Check engine light on; engine codes P0171 and P0174


p0171 is lean exhaust bank one ( passenger side) and p0174 is lean exhaust bank 2 ( drivers side). First we need to look for vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure, Intake air leaks after the mass air flow sensor, pvc system. Because you have both sides lean I would start looking at these spots.

My check engine light is on and I get the following three (3) service codes: P0171 P0174 P1000 Please tell me what is the problem!! Al Frazier alfrazier99@yahoo.com


The PO174 & PO171 go hand in hand. There is a lean fuel to air mixture. A disconnected vacuum line or if it has a hole in it. Check all lines make sure they are all connected and are in good condition. Air filter and air passages should not be blocked or dirty. The EGR differential pressure sensor might be bad. If the problem is not enough fuel, the underling cause may be a weak fuel pump, restricted fuel filter, leaky fuel pressure regulator or dirty fuel injectors. Usually a vehicle with 60,000 miles or more.Hope this has helped give you some possible cause to look at. Happy motoring!

I connected a scan tool to my 1997 mazda 626 and I got 3 fault codes P1407,P0303,P0171please help


My advise is to look at what moistcabbage had to say about your problem. Then I will add a little advise:
Put the P0171 on hold until you have a verified fix for the other 2 codes. Here's why:
.
A misfire causes raw fuel and air to be shoved down the exhaust as an unburned mixture (After all. that's what a misfire is.) This can cause the free oxygen level in the exhaust to rise and cause the lean code (P0171) From the EGR code that you have, I can tell that you have the 2.0L engine in your car. (This is not a valid code for the 2.5L) In this case, moistcabbage is sort-of correct. Thiscode actually indicates that the EGR valve does not move when the computer commands the EGR to open. (Which SHOULD also be producing a P0400 code, which is EGR no or low flow.) If P0400 is not present, then chances are that this is caused by the EGR sensor "lying" to the computer and telling it that the EGR is not opening when it really is. However, it also may be telling the truth and the computer just hasn't picked up on the low flow issue yet. Anyway, if the EGR is not moving, it could be caused by a vacuum leak, which will also cause your P0171code.
The logical order of this would be to check for obvious causes of misfire like the spark plug, wire, coil, and fuel injector and correct as necessary. Also check the EGR system out to find out what the cause of the EGR not moving code is. (And repar as necessary) Then clear the codes and drive the car to see if the P0171 code returns. If P0171 returns and the other codes stay gone, then you will have to check into oter possible causes of the lean code. Otherwise, I would not waste any time checking into a lean condition at all before the other two codes are confirmed fixed.

Check engine light


there is no reset switch,either take it to a big name auto parts store and have them use a scanner to give you the codes and turn off the light,or just disconnect battery for 3min and the light should go out. the first suggestion is the better, this way you will know what turned the light on in the first place, get back to me if you need more help, please rate my fix
