P1181 and p1171 is caused by air mass sonsor, after changing the sensor the car runs perfect and for some reason the third gear is no longer sliping.

Had a guy tell me it was either an o2 sensor or the MAF sensor, or a vacuum leak it would cost about a hundred dollars or so to diagnose. (Same guy that inspected the car about a week before the engine light came on). I figured if it was a vacuum leak, I might be able to find it myself... I did. SOMEONE had loosened the evap test port in the rear-passenger side of the engine compartment. Not going back there.

Have 4 codes P0306 P1181 P0141 P0136 is there easy fix? Also vibration at high speeds and passenger aide in front sounds like humming any ideas 2000 Volvo S80 2.9 Non turbo

There is no "easy fix" as only 2 of the 4 codes are for the same thing...for the P0136 and P0141, its probably a bad Bank 1 sensor 2 oxygen sensor..the P0306 means cylinder 6 is misfiring (it could be bad spark plug, bad coil, bad injector, carbon on valves, low compression) and P1181 is showing a fuel delivery issue high for the vibration, have all tires checked for balance and hum on passenger side is possibly a bad wheel bearing...and and all is best to have checked by your mechanic.

Hello, Saab 2001 93 with trouble code P1181. It seems to be running fine and the light has not returned. Can you point me in the correct direction? ThanksJeff

P1181 says Long term fuel Trim Additive, Max value, Air/Fuel too Lean

Check for vacuum leaks, check mass air flow sensor if this is ok - check fuel supply (pump, pressure)
