SOURCE: check engine light codes, p0171,
this fords have very comun problems with maf sensors geting contaminated, if you have not or can hear any vacium leaks, the problem is goin to be a conataminated mas air flow snsor (maf)
allow the engine to cold down for at least 15minutes and the remove the air filter hosing and inside has to have a sensor, clean the two liitle resistors inside with brake or carburetor cleaner, allow it to dry and reinstall it.
if this inf help please mark it as fixya ranking after you try what i said

P0171 is system too lean bank 1, P0174 is too lean bank 2, and 302 is misfire bank 1. Look for vacuum leaks. If you don't find them, put a vacuum gage on it can check. The P0171 is almost always a vacuum leak. If not other possibilities are front O2 sensor is too old and should be replaced (if mileage is greater than 100k then replace). Try injector cleaner. Misfires are usually bad spark plugs, but could possibly be caused by insufficient fuel. I've never had a car of mine in bad enough shape to have that error.

SOURCE: 4 codes P0171,P0174,P2195,P2197
171 system too lean
174 system too lean
2195 - 02 ozygen sensor signal stuck lean Bank1 Sensor 1
2197- 02 ozygen sensor signal stuck lean Bank 2
The 2 front 02 sensors are located on the front of
the exhaust manifold.
Should solve problem and increase gas mileage.

SOURCE: p0171 and p0174 codes
P0171 System too Lean (Bank 1)
P0174 System too Lean (Bank 2)
If a car has a check engine light on and has P0171 and P0174 codes stored, the most likely cause is a vacuum leak. These codes are set by the car’s computer when it sees too much oxygen in the exhaust. Excessive oxygen readings in the exhaust will set lean codes. This does not mean that the oxygen sensors are defective. It is a common mistake for people to replace oxygen sensors when lean codes are present. Just because the code is related to oxygen sensor readings, it doesn’t mean that the oxygen sensors are bad. If both of these codes are stored this means that both banks of the engine have excessive oxygen in the exhaust. If the oxygen sensors are replaced it’s most likely that the same codes will reappear. It is very uncommon for two oxygen sensors to fail at the same time.
Therefore the most likely cause of P0171 and P0174 codes is a vacuum leak. The source of a vacuum leak can be one of many things. The most common cause of a vacuum leak is a leaky hose. Vacuum hoses over time can become dry and brittle. The rubber deteriorates and can leak causing a vacuum loss. Many times a leaky vacuum hose can be found by listening for a hissing sound. A large vacuum leak can even make the car run rough at idle. In some cases it will not idle without feathering the gas pedal.

mass air flow sensor is not the problem, I had the exact same problem and have done much research on this. Check the PVC rubber hoses, especially the elbows for cracks. You probably noticed your gas mileage has been horrible too. Hope this helps
