these engines did have some exh valve issues, service bulletin 05-26-3. one other thing to verify is that the cam synronizer (CMP) is correctly installed. if its not right on, its way off.

These codes mean that the oxygen sensor is reading too "Lean" on both the left and right cylinder banks and the engine control system can't compensate any further to solve the problem. You may have a dirty or failing Mass Airflow Sensor that is miscalcuating the amount of airflow the engine is taking in which in turn can cause both of these codes to set. If the sensor is reporting less air than the engine is actually taking in then the engine computer will add only the amount of fuel it should based on what it was told by the sensor which will cause both cylinder banks to run "lean". There could be something else going on such as having two bad oxygen sensors [very rare] but I do see these two codes together quite often and usually its the sensor that is causing it. Hope this helps a bit!

Hi hope I can help.
P0171 mean bank 1 is to lean
P0174 means bank 2 is lean
You did not state what engine you have but by your codes you must have the V6 4.0.
These codes refer to a fuel issue. bank 1 and bank two represent each of your manifolds.
being you have a V6 you have 2 manifolds.
Each of your manifold have an O2 sensor in it. That's what is giving the lean reading.
This does not mean that you have bad O2 sensors.
They are just doing there job.
So you should check your fuel pressure with a gauge and make sure your pressure is correct.
It seams as your fuel pump maybe weak.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feed back
Thank you urnuts73@ FixYa
