Code 271 is for a problem with the injector for cylinder number 4. The circuit has higher voltage than normal. Possible causes are a faulty injector, dirty injector, or problem in the harness.
A mechanic would check the circuit and the injector with a meter.

Why would you take any car to a dealership?

Never a car over 5 years old

PO271 Cylinder #4 Injector Circuit High

Take to a local repair shop

You won't have the ability to diagnose

is it a vtec if so check oil level as if gets low causes problems with the variable valve timing due to low oil pressure which causes poor performance and brings on mil light.

Po302 po304 po307 po171 codes are showing up, any ideas?


PO 301 thru PO 308 are engine cylinders with possible
misfires & bad coils

PO 171 is a lean condition on Bank# 1 oxygen sensor

If the front or upstream sensor are over 100,000 miles, change
them as preventative maintenance

The cylinder misfires have to be diagnosed & tested any of
several ways,professionally for the most part

1996 Honda Accord Running lean after changing tune up and new oxygen sensors.


My first thought was fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure would cause the engine to go lean but not set a code for the actual problem.
Is it possible the fuel filter is clogged ? Have you checked fuel pressure?

My 1998 honda accord check engine light Is on. And there are two p codes 1259 and 1456. how to fix?


Fuel filler cap is loose. 1456

Tighten *at least SIX* clicks. Wait three engine on-off cycles. Light
should go off.

If it does not go off, the cap may not fit tightly enough for a proper
seal. Replace cap. Occasionally, the threads in the filler necks can be
damaged, preventing the cap from being properly tightened.

PO 171 fuel system to lean to bank 1 97 Honda Accord 165k miles


Yes. I would clean the engine with engine cleaner and then watch for any oul leaks. For you to use that much oil there would be a major leak. If no leaks check to see if blue smohe is coming out you tailpipe. If not keep an eye on is I this it will be fine if none of these things are wrong. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.

Check Engine Light is On


You did what thousands of people do they get a code and jump straight to replace a part no testing just guessing. code 43 is a fuel system problem code sure enough you absolutely need proffessional diagnostic help with this one you cannot go on another hondas code 43 because you can have two hondas exact same symptoms and even the color of the interior and have two completely different problems I realize it costs money to diagnose the problem but which is cheaper to pay diagnostic and only change the one bad thing or replace part after part then take it to be diagnosed and have them change one part?
Cmon Please do the right thing for your wallet honda is not a car for anyone but a professional to diagnose and fix.
