I believe these at left and right bank lean codes, for both bank to go lean check under hood for vacuum leak, in or around the intake, with engine running at idle you should be able to hear hissing of vacuum leak, fix leaking vacuum, clear codes.

Failed OBDII Diagnstic trouble codes P0761 and O1744 What does this mean?


code P0761-
Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 3 valve
- Shift solenoid 3 valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 3 valve circuit is open or shorted
P0761 FORD Description Shift solenoid valve 3 is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position. When is the code detected? The P0761 code is detected when the ECM has detected a mechanical fault with the solenoid energized, valve stuck off code O1744- is not a code these are the ones I have found that come close

P 0171 p left bank lean p 0174p right bank lean on f250 2004


check for vacuum leaks, especially on intake manifold gaskets. I use carb cleaner or ether to spray around. If engine revs where I spray, there's the leak. If this doesn't solve, please let us know.

Check engine light codes p0171 and p0174. What do they mean and how do I solve the issue?


these are lean codes. 171 is system too lean bank 1 and 174 is system too lean bank 2. what this relates to is you probably have a vacuum leak. look under for signs of obvious breaks in vacuum hoses. this is your most likely culprit. happy holidays

It means that your engine is running lean - not getting enough fuel for the amount of air that the engine is receiving. Because your maxima is equipped with a V-6 engine, whatever the problem, it is affecting only bank #1. Bank #1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder #1 is located, or in your case, the left side of the engine as it is viewed while facing the crankshaft end of the engine.
(on a 4 cylinder engine, there is only one bank and it is always referred to as Bank #1)
There are several things that can cause a lean condition including vacuum leaks, a malfunctioning Evaporative Emissions system, a misfiring cylinder (due to bad plugs, bad injectors, or an intake or head gasket leak.), a malfunctioning Mass Airflow sensor (MAF) or Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor (MAP) or even a bad Oxygen sensor (O2s) (Nissan sometimes calls an O2s an "Air-Fuel Ratio Sensor") It is even possible for a leaking vacuum brake booster to cause a lean code.
If there are any other malfunction codes present, it may help to pinpiont the cause of the lean code. (Like a P0301 "cylinder#1 misfire detected", in which case, you would address the misfire code first.)
Certain problems, like a leaking brake booster or a bad MAF will usually set lean codes for BOTH banks.
If the P0171 is the ONLY code present, the most likely cause is a bad O2s, but I recommend some diagnostic testing to prove it before spending the mega-bucks that Nissan gets for their O2 sensors.

Losing gas mileage, left bank running lean


There are 3 oxygen sensors on your van. Left bank would be the front left. Try replacing it and see if that helps but remember to reset the computer. Where I work the sensor costs a little over $100.00.
