Hi. You need to clean the Mass Air Flow Sensor.
This is an easy job.
Get a can of throttle body or brake cleaner spray at your local auto parts store.
Open the hood, and locate the air filter box. follow the tube from the filter box towards the engine. Look for a small black box with 2 screws holding it to the air tube, Remove the wire connector and observe inside the sensor with a flashlight. You will see 2 small wires, and they will appear fuzzy or dirty. Spray the interior with the cleaner until the wires are nice and clean. Do not use compressed air, you will damage the sensor. Put it all back together and drive it.
This will def fix your issue. This is a vey common problem. If you do it yourself, you will save 70 + bucks.
Thanks for choosing FixYa, and a FIxYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in banks 1 and 2 detected a rich condition (too little oxygen in the exhaust).
A code P0172 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
· There could be a fuel pressure or delivery problem
Possible solutions include:
Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
