SOURCE: got code p0171 system too lean (bank 1)

This is probably referring to problems with your bank 1 oxygen sensor.  Without the vehicle make, model and year I can't tell you where it is located.  However, if you replace your front oxygen sensor that should clear up the problem.  Also, if you do replace it, I always run some fuel injector cleaner through a full tank of gas at the same time.  Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have a P0171 to lean bank 1 error code

oxygen sensor, vacuum leak, and yes it could most definitly be if you swaped the wires of the firing order accidently you will get a code p0171 Check the tubing going from the air filter to the intake manifold to see if it has come loose. This might account for extra air going into the intake manifold than the computer is aware of. Otherwise it may be due to a faulty(or dirty) MAP/MAF sensor. Another possible cause is from low fuel pressure due to restricted fuel lines or a bad fuel pump.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Trailblazer. When it is cold

Code P0171 is a lean oxygen sensor code for bank 1 on your engine. Bank 1 is always the side of the engine where #1 cylider is located.

There are a couple of Technical Service Bulletins (TSB's) that may apply to your problem.

Bulletin No.: 09-06-03-004C
This bulletin covers intermittent problems due to oxidation problems in some of the wiring connectors.

Bulletin No.: 03-06-04-030G
This bulletin outlines repair proceedures for clogged or restricted fuel injectors.

The only other thing I can think of would be a vacuum leak that occurs only in cold ambient temperatures and only affects bank 1. (possible intake manifold gasket or something similar.)

SOURCE: engine code p0133, p0134, p1133,

All those codes and such an easy fix. ALL of these codes point to your upstream 02 sensor. It's the one on the passenger side of the engine coming off the exhaust, very very easy to get to. Soak that puppy with PB Blaster then remove the electrical connector and remove and replace sensor. TRY to stay away from Bosch 02 sensors, have been known and reported problems with these. In my case, I didn't have a choice but to buy the Bosch, but I haven't had any problems with mine.

Hope this helps, look to get a tad more miles per gallon too.

Ford windstar check engine light comes on after stopping when starting to get moving again shows p0171 & p0174 codes why??


P0171 indicates a lean condition. The most common cause of this is a defective mass air flow sensor. Also check if any vacuum leaks. P0174 OBD-II Trouble Code


Technical Description

System Too Lean (Bank 2)


What does that mean?

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust.

Note: This DTC is very similar to P0171, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.

Thanks.
