This code means the O2 sensor is showing the fuel control system is biased to lean air fuel ratio, the cause of this is most commonly a vacuum leak like a discopnnected engine vacuum hose or poor sealing of a vacuum hose, the other area's to check are intake manifold leaks, also this can be caused by a defective O2 sensor (Toyota calls them Air Fuel Sensors) in the exhaust system in cylinder bank one exhaust pipe before the catalytic converter

P0171 is a lean code. Open the hood, and locate the mass air flow sensor. Small black thingy in the intake tube between the air filter box and the engine, held in with 2 small screws. Remove the connector, remove the screws, and remove the sensor. Look into the sensor, you are going to see a couple of wires deep inside it. They will probabaly be "fuzzy" looking. Spray some brake cleaner on the wires until they are nice & clean. This will cure the P0171 code. Then check the air filter; replace it if it is dirty.
P1130 is an air-fuel sensor code, bank one, sensor one. More often than not, when we see this code, we replace the air-fuel sensor. Buy the replacement from you Toyota dealer, because the aftermarket sensors will not send the proper signal to the ECU, and you will be upset for having to buy a second sensor.
P0440 is a leak in the evaporative side of the fuel system; this looks after the fumes of the fuel in the tank. There are several reasons for seeing a P0440, like leaking vacuum lines, faulty fuel cap, rusty fuel filler tube at the cap, etc. This is kind of difficult to rectify without the proper equipment needed to diagnose what & where the actual leak is.
Hope this helps, please consider kind remarks regarding this solution. Thanks.

All cars sold in the US after 1995 use the same on board diagnotics called OBD-II. The codes are the same. Search OBM-II error codes and you'll get a listing.
P1150 Air/Fuel Sensor Circuit Range/Performance. (cylinder bank 1 Sensor 2)
P1150 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
water or corrosion in the O2 sensor connector, loose terminals in the connector, wiring burnt on exhaust components, open or short in the wiring due to rubbing on engine components, holes in exhaust allowing unmetered oxygen into exhaust system, unmetered vacuum leak at the engine, bad O2 sensor or bad PCM.
P1155 Air/Fuel Sensor Heater Circuit. (cylinder bank 1 Sensor 2)
P1155 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: O2 Heater element resistance is high, Internal short or open in the heater element or O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
Solution :Replace oxygen sensor and see if the problem goes away.
