P0172 - System Too Rich (Bank 1)
The adaptive fuel strategy continuously monitors the fuel delivery hardware. The test fails when the adaptive fuel tables reach a lean calibrated limit. Refer to Section 1 , Powertrain Control Software, Fuel Trim for more information.
EVAP canister purge valve leak (when canister is full).
Engine oil contamination.
Air Measurement System.
MAF sensor (contaminated, damaged, or corroded connector).
View Freeze Frame Data to determine the operating conditions when the DTC was set. Observe the LONGFT1 and LONGFT2 PID(s). Refer to Section 2 , Adaptive Fuel DTCs Diagnostic Techniques for more information.
he codes are: P0172 System too rich Bank 1 P0175 System too rich Bank 2 P1443 Small or no Purge Flow Condition The first thing to do is to check the fuel pressure. If it is too high, it will cause the engine to run rich. You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator.
Fuel sensors work in the hottest part of the exhaust and are difficult to remove after a period of time. Many mechanics apply a small amount of never seize to the threads to assist in replacement and future removal. However this affects the grounding of the sensor and can cause fault readings. Ask the mechanic if he did that and follow you idea that the sensors may aftermarket and not suitable for yoyr car
Peter. The dealer did diagnose the problem. They said the car needed all 3 oxygen sensors replaced. They were replaced and the car is now returning codes p0172 and p0175 which are the only 2 codes coming up when the check engine light came on. My question is if the dealer sold me the incorrect oxygen sensors could this cause the computer to incorrectly set the p0172 and p0175 rich fuel mixture codes. There are no other codes coming up. My plan at this point is to check and clean the MAF, check my fuel pressure, and also the TPS but I did not want to waste my time if it could possibly be that the new oxygen sensors where the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
those codes are for lean engine condition look for vac leaks at the back of engine to the pcv valve could hear hissing noise with engine running also check egr valve to be stuck open also when was last fuel filter changed? hope this helps .
