SOURCE: engine codes P0101 and P0170
P0101 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance Problem
Air flow sensor problem, maybe causing the second code to go off.
The air flow sensor should be right near your air filter box.

The code P0170 means that the air-fuel mixture coming in to the engine is too lean, or too rich. Usually it's the lean condition that causes this code. The code P0173 means the same, only for the Bank 2. Some car manufacturers list the description for the code P0170 as self adaptation out of limits.
The code P0170 could be caused by a number of reasons, such as vacuum leaks, bad PCV valve, or other parts of crankcase ventilation system, low fuel pressure, bad oxygen sensor, bad MAF sensor or even a bad EGR vlave.
