i will try to help. 171/174 indicates lean condition in engine. the mass air flow sensor is located in the rubber tube going to throttlebody. you can try to clean it. using mild carb cleaner safe for sensors, remove sensor from tube. spray clean the tiny wires located in the cylinder. do not touch them, they are very delicate. these engines are also notorious for leaking intake gaskets and faulty pcv valves. these will all set these 2 codes. feel free with anymore questions.

The sensor is mounted on the throttle body between the air cleaner assembly and the air cleaner outlet tube.

Sound like you have a big vacuum leak. Check the hoses that attch the PCV valve on the valve cover on the passenger side. Also reach way back on top of the engine there's another hose there that is known for going bad. The dealer has those hoses and they call it the Heated PCV valve hose assembly. Very common problem.

the mass airflow is located inside the air filter case unclip the large clamp that you would loosen to change airfilter . then loosen clamp disconnect mass airflow wire remove whole housing push the connector inside the housing when pulling sensor out of housing the inner part of the case will seperate and allow complete access to sensor swap sensor by removing/ loosening the two tamper proof torx screws /reverse the procedure to install back to vehicle
