the p0171 code is for a fuel system lean code......possible causes are a cracked exhaust manifold.....bad o2 sensor...bad coolant temp sensor fuel pump.....lean fuel can cause the other codes you have for misfires

I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.
If persistent boil ups/over attention must made in the cylinder head
or gasket area, or possibly water pump?

You didn’t mention replacing the temperature sensor located
on the block in the path of the ‘cooled’ coolant.
I can’t tell you any closer where to look for it since you didn’t specify which engine you have.
This device is a solid state item called a thermistor.
With the air temperature around 77 degrees F and a 'cold' engine, it should measure about 10,000 Ohms and hot, around 1,200 Ohms while disconnected from its mating connector.
With the ignition on, and the connector disconnected from the sensor, you should measure about 5 volts coming from the ECU.
If this has failed, the ECU is not getting the right info back from the sensor and doesn’t know if the fan is needed or not.
