When these codes are tried together it usually means O2 sensors are going bad. I suggest you get a real scanner on it before you spend $$$$$

Car Runs to Lean. Help!


http://www.obd-codes.com/p0172
P0172 is running too rich, not lean. Was it a typo, or did you really have P0172 (just like my Buick, same two codes [0300, 0172]- and still working on it). Go to the site above and look. (All codes are there for descriptions and diagnosing procedures.)
If it is too lean, possibly a vacuum leak from a bad hose or the intake manifold.

System lean bank 1 p0172 fuel


PO 171 Bank 1 too lean
PO 174 Bank 2 too lean
Why ?
The front O2 Sensors need to be replaced at
100,000 miles or sooner, if they have actually failed
They are reading too lean because the system is too
rich & the computer is driving the fuel trim or injector
pulse lean, thus the codes or failed sensors, yes both
Have to check fuel trim with a scan tool
Have to check fuel pressure
Have to check there are no leaking injectors
Have to check for Vacuum Leaks from the intake
all the way to the exhaust converter
Your working a rich condition keeping in mind the system
is driven lean
You look at fuel trim short & long,sort of a past history
of events
May want to look at converter temps also
The converters won't last long if you have or has
a rich condition from fuel or cylinder misfires
Now the spark plugs can't be over 3 years old
& no mifires,get that out of the way before working
the O2 issues

I have got a P0171 & P0174 engine codes on my 2001 mercury sable. What do I do to fix it.


P0171 System Too Lean Bank 1
P0172 System Too Rich Bank 1
P0173 Fuel Trim Bank 2
P0174 System Too Lean Bank 2

OK, that's a partial list of codes, the fuel delivery is controlled by the oxygen sensors, so it's possible that something in that area could be causing your problem.

However, it could also be clogged fuel injectors that can't deliver enough fuel to the cylinders compared to the air that is pulled into the engine.

Try some fuel injector cleaner for that poured into the gas tank.

How does it run?
Does it miss at all?
