There is lean and rich. This is the air/fuel mixture. Usually set by car computer if it is fuel injected. It the reading is not correct. It may be time for new o2 sensors.

Does your "Check Engine" light come on, John? I'd hope so. If it does, please have someone with an OBD scanner read your computer error codes.

This sounds for all the world like the engine is running much too lean when warm. The power brakes use vacuum to assist pedal pressure, and that vacuum draws a lot of air from the intake manifold. Normally, that's not enough air to make a difference, but if the engine's already running much too lean it might be enough to cause the symptoms you describe.

1997 buick lasabra engine code >po171


The trouble code is related to a lean engine fuel trim problem. This particular code can be caused by a vacuum leak, low fuel pressure or faulty MAF or MAP. Check for vacuum leaks first, if you cant find any broken or cracked hoses, you might want to take it to a good shop and have live data read to determine if there is a component defective.

Something odd about what you posted. An engine that is running lean shouldn't be using a lot of fuel. Lean is when there isn't enough fuel going into the engine. Two other sensors that regulate fuel flow are the map sensor and throttle position sensor. Temp sensor generally would cause a rich condition but I'd test that too. Be sure to check for vacuum leaks at the manifold and lines as well as fittings... A vacuum leak will give the O2 sensor a lean reading...seeing that, the computer will try to compensate by adding fuel. Clearing codes can change the way it's running but as soon as the computer runs through it's internal diagnostics it will turn the light back on if there is a problem.

Engine codes run on 2004 Freestar


Make sure you have all the vacuum leaks repaired.
Disconnect the battery for two mins,codes my clear.
The codes you got are O2 Sensors,because of the vacuum leak,which leaned out the readings and set the codes.

98 Nissan Maxima - Check Engine Light, Knock Sensor


If the car is pinging you will set a knock sensor code.'
This comes from bad gas and running lean., You really need this professionally inspected to rule out the basics. I have seen alot of nissans with the knock sensor code stored but the light is still off.
Fill up the tank with high octane chevron and some techron injector cleaner and clear the light. If it stays off for a couple days then go get it inspected. Even if the code is stored it will still pass as long as the light is still off and the monitors have run.

Engine service soon light is on. I check with a mechanic and the reading said air is lean. What is the problem?


it would not say air is lean,it should be an oxygen sensor that would even come close to that,you need to get the code number of what set the light off.

Check engine light keeps coming on. Lean fuel


A lean code can be caused by several different things. The most common, if you are getting a lean code on BOTH banks, is a dirty Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) Cleaning the MAF usually fixes it.

If not, it could be caused by anything from a crack in a vacuum line to a bad fuel pump. (Anything that could make the engine run lean.)

Po174 check engine light comes on for few days and then it goes off .i change all the sensors the o2 and the air fuel,injectors about a month ago and the light just came back on.


Have you checked all vacuum lines etc, for leak, or crack. It's reading lean on bank 2. Your coolant isn't going down is it?
