I would be very hesitant about just going in and replacing parts/sensors, especially those diagnosed from Electronic Control Module (ECM) Diagnostic Trouble codes (DTC's) alone, as quite often when multiple codes are present, they are often related to a songle malfunction/failure (Such as coil codes, and O2, rich/lean codes, etc...) - A p0171 and 0174 code is not indicative of a faulty MAF sensor - it is a code set when a lean condition is detected within the vehicle's exhaust...often caused by vacuum leaks, EGR valve malfunctions, BAC/IAC ( Bypass/Idle air control) valve malfunction, DPFE sensor malfunction, or the MAF "hot wire" is dirty, and can be cleaned with the correct cleaner, but instead of replacing a $250 MAF sensor; only to later find out that if you had the vehicle repaired by a trained technician, a $3 vacuum hose and a $50 ignition coil had initiated the multiple DTC's - So, sometimes it does pay to use a trained technician; especially with so many codes present - Like I said - If I were going to do the work myself, I would erase all the codes (Disconnect battery cable for about 10 mins - this will also erase the block/learn ECM settings and it may search for idle for a bit, but will straighten out with time - reconnect battery and start the car - then after the light re-illuminates, re-pull the codes, and most importantly test the sensors/parts indicated by the DTC's before replacing anything - that is if you want to fix it the most cost effective way possible, but, if you have plenty of money to waste you could always just go replace whatever the DTC's tell you is out of specifications, regardless of the cause...this might fix it, but may not as well - if you got lots of money and feel lucky it's the way to go - if not, test those parts and sensor before replacing them - there is a process for testing each of them....Thanks

Testimonial: "Thanks you so very much. The car was shaking and making a knocking sound and running very poorly and now the engine is locked I had in towed home."
Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1
P0300=Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
P0301=Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
P0172=System Too Rich Bank 1
P2181=Cooling System Performance
you need to write these down,have someone clear the codes in the car,then go for short ride and recheck which if any code reappears.it's like domino's affect,one sensor can start a chain affect with the others.

Hi, you may be running rich. Not sure which engine you have, and this car is not sold in the US, but if you have a vacuum operated fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail, check it for a torn diaphram.

p0300 is a random engine misfire and p0420 is catalytic converter efficieny below threshhold bank1. one easily causes the other. only way to be sure you get it fixed would be a tune up, new cat converter and o2 sensors
