Po 171 Code Only After Extended Idling, Cold Weather With Heat On High, Looks Like Engine Is Not Heating Up Fast Enough?
Code p0171 refers to system too lean-bank 1===causes --intake /exhaust leak---AIR system MAF/VAF sensor--fuel pressure /pump/ regulator---injectors--HO2S IF the thermostat working ok then the engine will get hot enough up to 85 degrees minimum. May be you have an air lock in the coolant system or the heater control is not opening the flow control to the heater core properly

transmision shifts are based on engine load imputs a 171 and 174 refer to a lean condition therefor the shift is being based on an assumed cold engine so yes it may be related
